Over twenty years ago, McGennis took his first leap of faith writing/directing/producing his first film down in New Orleans.  The script was inspired by his friendship with a Jackson Square street artist and much of the filming was done in the French Quarter which was no "Big Easy."  McGennis had written a couple songs prior to writing the script and he reached out to composer David Kane to create an old-school funky score assigning instruments to the different characters.  Jazz legend Jimmy Smith was their authentic point of departure but little did they know that the Jimmy Smith Group would wind up recording the score along with some of New Orleans finest players!  This project also marked the first time that McGennis would team up with Maria Muldaur for the theme song.  It was always McGennis' artistic vision to combine movie and music.  This commemorative "movie album" marks the first time "Gravediggers" has ever been physically offered and it represents crossing a finish line.  They created something timeless, buried it and found it again.  Small in quantity, huge in meaning as this gem shines a light on the path of a true independent artist.  Contact us for details.

"Close To Jubilee" is dedicated to Jerry Livingston.   Apart from being a phenomenal bass player, Jerry was a beautiful soul and an inspiration to so many of us here in Buffalo and beyond.  Jerry and Pete worked together on many musical film projects over the years all the way up through Jerry's battle with cancer while recording "Close To Jubilee."  Proceeds from this project will go to launching a music school foundation in Jerry's name in Buffalo.  His aura will always surround this project and shine a light on a greater spirit that connects all of us.  “We’ll get there.  We’ll get there. Hosanna keep awaitin’ for me.  We’ll get there.  We’ll get there.  Gettin’ close to Jubilee.”

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.
