Synopsis
In 1959, Berry Gordy gathered the best musicians from Detroit's thriving jazz and blues scene to begin cutting songs for his new record company. Over a fourteen year period they were the heartbeat on hits such as, "My Girl," "Bernadette," "I Was Made to Love Her," and every other hit from Motown's Detroit era. By the end of their phenomenal run, this unheralded group of musicians had played on more number one hits than the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, Elvis and the Beatles combined--which makes them the greatest hit machine in the history of popular music. They called themselves "The Funk Brothers". Forty-one years after they played their first note on a Motown record, and three decades since they last jammed together, the Funk Brothers reunited back in Detroit to play their music and tell their unforgettable story. The Funk Brothers' story is told through archival footage and still photos, narration, interviews, re-creation scenes, twenty Motown master tracks, and twelve new live performances of Motown classics. The Funk Brothers are also shown backing up such music stars as Chaka Kahn, Ben Harper, Bootsy Collins, Montel Jordan, Meshell Ndegeocello, Joan Osborne, and Gerald Levert.
