The Girls in the Band

Our next film for the North County Film Club will be the acclaimed Girls in the Band. The film will be shown Sunday, January 24 at 3:00.

The Girls in the Band is everything a worthwhile documentary should be, and then some: engaging, informative, thorough and brimming with delightful characters. Shining a long-overdue spotlight on the shamefully forgotten women who flourished as jazz musicians at a time when men ruled the beat, Judy Chaikin’s beautifully assembled film gives voice to performers whose names are too often unknown even among their musical sisters of the present day.

The following is a trailer for the film:

Hope to see you there.
