My friend Judy Prichett shared with me this appeal for funding for a new documentary about legendary band leader Chick Webb:
There is a fantastic new documentary about to be released: "The Savoy King: Chick Webb & the Music That Changed America". It tells the important story of the birth of swing dancing at the Savoy Ballroom, where Frankie and the lindy hop got its start…
The film is in need of funding before it can be released. If you can help get this important work of history out to the public, please go to "The Savoy King: Chick Webb & the Music That Changed America" to make a donation. Thank you.
If you can lend a buck or two, head to the filmmaker's kickstarter page for more info and to contribute!
