We here at Art&Seek are thrilled to present the KERA original production South Dallas Pop on KERA TV Oct. 22. So thrilled that we’re having not one – but TWO – events to celebrate the era when funk was king in Dallas. And you’re invited. Just drop Betsy a quick e-mail at b[email protected] to let us know which you’d like to attend.
This Friday, The South Dallas Cultural Center is our host at a screening and celebration of South Dallas Pop . There will be a Q&A with KERA Executive Producer Rob Tranchin, who made the documentary, and Roger Boykin and Wendell Sneed, the musicians who organized what was really more funk festival than pop festival in South Dallas. And what would a party be without music? The Booker T. Washington Rhythm and Blues Band will get it started for us following the screening.
The Soul Seven band
And Thursday Oct. 23, The Dallas Museum of Art and Art&Seek host a screening of South Dallas Pop in the Horchow Auditorium. This time, the music starts before the screening – come early to enjoy Jazz in the Atrium featuring Marc Toussaint & Trio. And once again, there will be an opportunity to chat with Tranchin, Boykin and Sneed after the screening.
Hope to see you there!
