The 14th Annual On Location Memphis International Film and Music Festival kicked off last night with an opening reception at the Paradiso theatre in East Memphis, with music provided by Singa Bromfield.
After the reception was a 20-minute sneak preview of an upcoming documentary by Martin Shore and Boo Mitchell called The Memphians, which is a film documenting a series of recording sessions in which old-school greats like Otis Clay and Bobby Rush were brough together with rappers like Lil P-Nut, Eightball & MJG and Frayser Boy. This film, along with Dan Greer’s Ole Beale Street Revue which was shown afterwards, brought out many of the living stars of Memphis music, including Boo Mitchell and several other Mitchell family members, the Rev. Darryl Carter, the Rev. Charles Hodges, Bobby Rush, Frayser Boy, Dan Greer, Edward “Hot” Cleveland and Larry Dodson of the Bar-Kays. On Location resumes today at noon at Studio on the Square in Overton Sqaure, and the the first music showcases get underway tonight at Purple Haze at Second and Lt. George W. Lee Avenue.
