Film Synopsis

In the mid 1960s, Bob Baldori and his band The Woolies became the backup to the backup to a musician visiting Lansing. That night began a 50-year friendship between Baldori who would become a boogie woogie music pioneer and the Father of Rock n’ Roll Chuck Berry. The two would record a couple albums at Baldori’s Okemos-based sound studio. Berry was famous for not allowing pictures and video taping at his performances, so Baldori relies on a few photos and memories of the 100+ performances he had with Chuck Berry throughout the country.
