Northwest Film Forum
Wheedle’s Groove is a band, a film and a “Day” in Seattle. September 4 is officially “Wheedle’s Groove Day” as declared by Mayor McGinn, and it’s a day to remember the rich history of the Seattle soul and funk scene from the 1960s and 1970s. Light In The Attic spent twelve months tracking down artists and fleshing out the story of Seattle’s funky past, and the result was a CD compilation entitled “Wheedle’s Groove.” At the CD release party in August of 2004, a line of nostalgic 60-somethings and funk-hungry 20-somethings wrapped around the building as the musicians inside, now janitors, graphic designers, and truck drivers, look back at careers derailed and prepare to perform together for the first time in 30 years. And now Seattle-based filmmaker Jennifer Maas has made a documentary film that will be playing at the Northwest Film Forum from September 3-9. Clips from the film as well as a performance from these musicians will also be featured at Bumbershoot this weekend. For more information, follow the link.
