Rediscover the Blues through the eyes of the men who created it.

I was fortunate enough to have seen one of the first screenings of Sidemen: Long Road to Glory. The film impressed upon me the significance of the documentary, not only in honor of these men and their contributions to popular culture, but also as a long overdue historical narrative that is - in equal parts - pure satisfaction for music buffs, Black historians, and of course, any lover of the classic American Dream; however long that may take to achieve. Personally speaking, I've always been a fan of classic rock, but as far as the Blues, I've only ever been familiar the with names of B.B. King and Muddy Waters. I honestly had no idea how influential Blues music really was until I watched Sidemen. With that said, I can find no memorable comparison to any other time - whatsoever - where I experienced "goosebumps" as frequently as during this screening. Endless world-renowned artists share intimate memories of their personal experiences with Pinetop Perkins, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, and Hubert Sumlin. If ever you were curious about the man behind the legend, this is the underdog story you've been waiting for - times three. But that's not all. When you witness these three musical masters perform with such proficiency and passion, you can't help but feel it deep in your heart.

A Journey down the long road to glory, amazing.

Our family along with all the families of young musicians attending the Pinetop Perkins Foundation 2016 Masterclass workshop where invited to a private screening of the film last evening, we were told that it would make us laugh and cry with a roller-coaster of emotion. They were right, we laughed and we cried, being in the Mississippi Delta, particularly Clarksdale, MS seeing where these incredible musicians lived and worked, the stories they told and the legacy they have left behind made the screening even more special, and the the musicians, the writers, the producers and everyone involved in the production of this film, Thank You. Thank You for helping keep the Blues Alive, Thank you for telling the story of these fine musicians, Thank you for putting this on film, so we can share this with our children. Thank You.
