    North Mississippi Allstars

    Year: 2011

    Runtime: 2 hr 1 min

    On 11.11.2011 the North Mississippi Allstars delivered an amazing performance at the historic Bluebird Theater in Denver. “It’s very unusual for the best show of a tour to be captured and documented without distraction” said drummer Cody Dickinson, “this is a raw and real representation of our band hitting a stride and breaking the mold”. 11.11.11 highlights NMA's Americana roots while showcasing virtuoso performances on traditional and improvised instruments. “We anticipated 11.11.11 being a great night of music, we wanted to make it special” adds guitarist Luther Dickinson. The band delivers on its promise with eye popping guitar work from Luther (including a heavy dose of the fan favorite coffee-can guitar) and Cody going primal on the drums with wiffle ball bats. Bass player Chris Chew shows off his vocal talents on “I’d Love To Be A Hippy” and Curtis Mayfield's "People Get Ready". Interlaced between many songs are interview clips revealing an honest window into the band’s perspective on their music, their history, and where they are today.

    Prince

    Year: 2017

    Runtime: 45 min

    In recent times, music lovers have been confounded with the tragic and shocking news that some of their most beloved stars had passed away in controversial circumstances. The music world has again been stunned by the sudden and tragic news that Prince, the legendary musician, died at his home in Minneapolis at the age of just 57, and it was recently confirmed the singer died of an opioid overdose. He was one of the most naturally gifted artists of all time, and also one of the most mysterious. In the Eighties, at a time when other megastars such as Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, and Madonna, were delivering an album every three years or so, Prince remained prolific to an almost inhuman degree. A byproduct of his inexhaustible output was Prince's tendency toward wayward, self-indulgent career moves that sometimes alienated even his most ardent supporters. His influence is unparalleled, and his legacy will live on through his inspirational music. In this fascinating documentary, we take an in depth look into the life and times of one of music’s greatest performers…Prince.

  • Sum Of The Parts

    Genesis

    Year: 2014

    Runtime: 1 hr 30 min

    This is a feature-length documentary about Genesis - one of the most successful bands in rock history. And also one of the most vilified. A band that almost died in the mid-1970s with the loss of its leader ; it then survived a change of lead singer and style to storm the charts in the 1980s. Remarkably, its principle members developed successful solo careers in parallel with the band’s.

    With full access to the key players, including Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins, the film recounts an extraordinary musical story .

    They were British public school boys, whose experimental progressive rock band, led by Peter Gabriel, attracted for much of the 1970s a fervent, mainly young male, following. But then in the 1980s, the Phil Collins-led Genesis kicked into an altogether different, more pop, sound , attracting a massive following - including many young women fans . In the process, they became one the most successful bands in the world. Their 1986 album “Invisible Touch”, for example, produced five US top ten singles including number one with the title song.

  • Genghis Blues

    Paul Pena

    Year: 1999

    Runtime: 1 hr 28 min

    Paul Pena heard a sound, something intensely beautiful but disturbing at the same time, coming from his short-wave radio. The sound was that of Tuvan throat-singers, a sound that changed his life forever and sent him on a journey across the world to a land unknown. In his search for harmony and the answer to a mystifying obsession, music helped Pena bridge two cultures. This Academy Award-nominated film is the story of a blind blues musician and his triumphant trek to the forgotten land of Tuva and the mysterious art of khöömei, or throat-singing, a seemingly impossible form of singing that produces multiple vocal tones simultaneously. Paul Pena, who has played with the likes of Bonnie Raitt, T-Bone Walker, John Lee Hooker, Jerry Garcia, Muddy Waters and BB King, travels to Tuva to live among the descendants of Genghis Khan and compete in their triennial khöömei contest.

  • Come Together: A Beatles Tribute

    Various Artists

    Year: 2014

    Runtime: 52 min

    If music is the universal language, then the songs of the Beatles are its Rosetta Stone. Their compositions are an international language that crosses all borders and overrides cultural differences. Though they no longer exist as the Fab Four, their musical legacy lives on through generations of fans, and the thousands of tribute bands who "come together" worldwide, to interpret and perform their music. There are an estimated 8,000 Beatles tribute bands globally who perform at multiple Beatles festivals and conventions throughout the world. Shot almost entirely in Liverpool, the birthplace of The Beatles, and captured in HD during International Beatles Week, Come Together is a tribute to that legacy - a phenomena that shows no signs of stopping. Paul once said, "A hundred years from now, people will listen to the music of the Beatles the same way we listen to Mozart." Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. The lengths some tribute groups go to ranges from simple vocal harmonies, to what are affectionately called "Boots and Suits" bands. Regardless of nationality, they attempt to look and sound as close to the originals as possible. The result is a creative composite of musical expression. The documentary illustrates their diversification in sound and illusion. Come Together, moderated on-camera by John Lennon's sister, Julia Baird, captures that spirit, motivation, energy and interpretation through in-depth interviews, rare footage, stunning concert performances, and personal stories by bands and fans alike. People have come together from Tokyo to Stockholm to Las Vegas to share their love of the music of The Beatles and the positive and uplifting message it brings. This is their tribute to them as well.

    Studio releases never fully conveyed Cheap Trick’s muscle, but the band harnessed the raw energy of their live show with 1978’s At Budokan (Live). Recorded in Tokyo before 12,000 feverish fans, “Hello There” and “Lookout” are the dictionary definition of how live rock ’n’ roll should sound. A cover of “Ain’t That a Shame” highlights the band’s connection to a timeless tradition of teen-rock abandon, but “Surrender” and “I Want You to Want Me” are the gold coins that secured them their own space in the rock canon.

  • An Ox's Tale

    John Entwistle

    Year: 2017

    Runtime: 1 hr 19 min

    In 1964, The Who became one of the key figures of the British Invasion, taking the American music scene by storm. While Roger Daltrey, Pete Townsend and Keith Moon took the spotlight with their on stage antics, John Entwistle, dubbed "The Quiet One," stood in the shadows... poised to become the biggest bass player in rock and roll. With his arena-rock days behind him, Entwistle continued down his own path, finding great musical freedom with the John Entwistle Band. In 2002, after years of touring his solo project, Entwistle couldn't resist the lure of bringing back one of the greatest bands in rock and roll history. Tragically, plans for The Who's North American Reunion Tour were cut short when on the eve of the first show John was found dead in his Las Vegas hotel room. "The Ox," as Entwistle was affectionately known, left behind many fans and several unfinished projects. With his passing, the world lost a musical legend, dubbed Guitar Magazine's "Bassist of the Millennium." Narrated by Peter Frampton, John Entwistle: An Ox's Tale covers the life of John Entwistle, from his first public performance at the age of 14 to his feelings about The Who's most recent reunion. This film contains the last footage and interviews ever shot with Entwistle, offering the one chance for fans to discover the real life behind the man who far exceeded his greatest aspirations.

  • Tuff Luck

    Tuff Luck

    Year: 2014

    Runtime: 1 hr 38 min

    For every rock and roll band striving to grab that ever elusive brass ring and "make it" in the music business, there's a million others, equally as talented, equally as inspired, equally as hard working, that unfortunately never get their shot for a confluence of reasons. . . timing, fate and just plain dumb luck. Some bands were meant to succeed and others, despite their efforts, are destined to crash and burn, their golden dreams of musical stardom abruptly torpedoed and vanquished. Velocity Films is proud to announce their latest film venture. A documentary charting the dramatic rise and fall of Tuff Luck, a criminally unheralded '80s hard rock band blessed with prodigious musical gifts. In an alternate universe, Tuff Luck should have graced the cover of Rolling Stone magazine and instead has withered in total obscurity. That is until now. . . Tuff Luck is headed up by Andrew Klein, the younger brother of Tuff Luck drummer, the late Todd Kelly. As for the story arc, Klein explains, "The film will focus on Tuff Luck's formation, rise, and eventual demise while also drawing attention to a once thriving and vital music scene in Florida. Based in South Florida, the aptly named Tuff Luck became the hottest attraction on the local music scene by 1986, routinely drawing thousands of fans to their gigs. They released one album on Ann Boleyn's underground label, New Renaissance Records. The self-entitled debut included fan favorites such as "Sleaze if you Please", "Tonight Tonight", and "Take it or Leave it. " Tuff Luck was on the precipice of landing a huge record deal with Atlantic Records when they seemingly had everything going for them. Over the course of their ten-year career, the gifted hard rock outfit were an odds on favorite in the "next big thing" rock and roll sweepstakes and had expanded their profile, opening shows for hair metal giants, Dokken and Stryper among others. What made Tuff Luck stand out from the countless other metal bands populating the region was their uncanny level of musicianship, skill and consummate showmanship. Virtuoso guitarist Dave Scott and bassist James Marino were championed as future stars on the rise in Mike Varney's high profile monthly column in Guitar Player magazine. Meanwhile, drummer Todd Kelly was voted Florida's "Best Drummer" on multiple occasions, attracting attention from endorsement suitors such as Paiste. Rounding out the metal quartet was vocalist Kenny Monroe, with his commanding stage presence and smoky charisma, he was the ultimate front man. All the ingredients were in place for a national breakthrough, all except the elusive major record deal. Had the fickle hand of fate anointed them the career break they deserved, their story would have been an altogether different one. Tuff Luck would have been recognized as one of the leaders of the '80s hard rock scene. Under the aegis of Klein, the saga of the band doesn't end there. The new documentary chronicles Tuff Luck's uphill quest for world domination, emboldened by a refreshing "warts and all" slant. It's a story of survival, a story of stubborn dedication, a story of fierce commitment and unwavering ambition. A story of four close friends who shared big dreams. Quite simply, it's a tribute to the enduring spirit and magic of rock and roll music and a story that we, the fortunate and the beleaguered, can all relate. Featuring hands-on involvement from the entire group who contributed extensive interviews, the documentary also yields a rich treasure trove of visual material including scores of photographs, vintage memorabilia and electrifying concert performances.
