Soul Lovers or those who want a better appreciation of the music Unite!!!
Two events in one! Two years ago I caught a great documentary, Thunder Soul, at the Dallas Film Festival. It has now made it's way to the Historic Texas Theater. The documentary about a inner-city high school funk band will move you (see movie summary below). I will enter the movie at exactly 7:45. Plenty of free parking on the street...eat before you come.
Black Gold Soul Party
After the movie, the theater is hosting the Black Gold Soul Party where I will have a couple of drinks at the bar while istening to R&B music that didn't get its break back in the day. Black Gold...as in rare soul 45s! Expect to hear great songs that somehow fell through the cracks. We're dropping records that never saw the light of day, by artists who didn't get the break they deserved.
Northern Soul, Modern Soul, Motown, & RnB....
Thunder Soul (Movie Description)
It was Afros and pleated shirts, James Brown and Bootsy Collins. It was the '70s, and at an inner-city Houston high school history would be made. Charismatic band leader, Conrad "Prof" Johnson, would turn the school's mediocre jazz band into a legendary funk powerhouse. Now, 35 years later, his students prepare to pay tribute to the man who changed their lives--the 92-year old Prof. Some haven't played their horns in decades, still they dust off their instruments, determined to retake the stage to show Prof and the world that they've still got it
