Scene Magazine

There is an article about our film and the tribute show from Harrah's Casino in this month's issue. Page 52. thanks Mark St James.

Check it out here.

NewOrleans.com

"In 1970, current Harrah’s New Orleans Entertainment Director Bill Johnston got together with a group of friends and opened a music club in the city’s Warehouse District that, in its 12-year history, achieved near-legendary status. With such renowned acts as the Allman Brothers, The Who, Pink Floyd, Rod Stewart, ZZ Top, Chicago, David Bowie, Elton John, Joe Cocker, Ted Nugent, the Grateful Dead and more, The Warehouse at Tchoupitoulas and Felicity streets was THE hottest place for live music in New Orleans in the 1970s."

The rest of the interview located HERE.

The Soundtrack

Our next big hurdle with this film will be raising the funds for a proper soundtrack. Early estimates from our (thank god she is pro bono) lawyer are around $40,000. I know this number seems large but I truly feel that if we all can give just a little we will surprised at what we can accomplish together.

Thank You so Much
Jessy Cale Williamson





Blog of New Orleans


When me and my cousin were growing up, and started getting into old ’60s and ’70s music, we’d always ask our parents, ‘Hey, did you every see the Doors? Did you ever see Pink Floyd? The Allman Brothers?’ And they’d say, ‘Oh, at the Warehouse.’ So for a good portion of our youth, we were always hearing about the Warehouse. It had been torn down, so even as adults, it seemed like this mythical place. We didn’t know where it was, or what it was, or anything.

The rest of the interview is located here.
