SAMPLE THIS is the forthcoming documentary film about The Incredible Bongo Band, a true story of how MGM Records producer/exec Michael Viner and the greatest studio musicians of the 70's entwined to create one of the most influential albums in history. If not for the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, it might never have happened. The gunshots that rang out in the Ambassador Hotel kitchen in June of 1968 started a music revolution. It's the story of a band that never was, a cult movie and revolutionary music from the streets of New York. A pop culture odyssey that includes Charles Manson, Afrika Bambaataa, a former Beatle, an infamous mobster and many more. SAMPLE THIS is directed by Dan Forrer and narrated by Gene Simmons.
The movie premiers at the Austin Film Festival in Austin TX October 21. Can't wait to see this.
