"In his third movie, multimedia artist Peter McGennis pays musical homage to the early days of Blue Note and steel mill working class of Buffalo, NY.  His love letter to Buffalo took three years to independently produce, and it's worth every penny."       - Trina Calderon, Relix

Limited Edition Movie

(Blu-ray & DVD), Original Soundtrack CD and Music Poster!

​       Limited Collector's Edition (1,000 Copies)



As the 1970's draw to a close, Queen City is in dire straights.  The steel mills are closed, people are leaving in droves and political corruption is rampant.  In the dead of winter, Detective "Jimmy" Brinker (Peter McGennis) sets out to expose mobsters with the help of savvy jazz singer Lady Midnight (Vivica A. Fox), slick private dick Takiri (Lyriq Bent) and  an incredible, one-of-a-kind musical cast including Susan Tedeschi, Allen Toussaint, James Cotton, Sharon Jones, Maria Muldaur, Magic Slim, Toni Lynn Washington and others.  Steel town blues never sounded so good in this campy 1970's infused musical homage.
