After the film's Monday, March 15 screening, The Kashmere Reunion Stage Band will perform live at SXSW, opening for T-Bird and the Breaks at the Austin Chronicle Film Party.
Thunder Soul follows the extraordinary reunion of alumni from Houston's storied Kashmere High School Stage Band, who return to their school for the first time in 35 years to pay tribute to their beloved leader--the 92 year-old "Prof"--who transformed the school’s mediocre jazz band into a world-class funk powerhouse.
Snoot Entertainment, which produced Thunder Soul, is a motion picture production company founded in February 2004 to independently develop, finance and produce both commercial genre-oriented live-action films and CG animated features with broad audience appeal.
