Director Greg “Freddy” Camalier will take you on a journey with his documentary of the magical, mystical and musical community in a small town in Alabama. “Muscle Shoals” is the birthplace of some of the greatest music of all time.

This film is one of the best history lessons for any lover of all genres of music, students and families.

For 1 hour and 51 minutes you will be saying “Wow! I didn’t know that,” singing out loud and tapping your feet to the beats of magic of “Muscle Shoals.”

This movie will be on a limited engagement and at a few select theaters, but I highly recommend you seek out the magical powers of “Muscle Shoals.”

I give this film 10 heartbeats.

See you at the concession stand!
