As the 1970’s draw to a close, Queen City is in dire straits. The steel mills are closed, people are leaving in droves and political corruption is rampant. In the dead of winter, Detective “Jimmy”Brinker (Peter McGennis) sets out to expose mobsters with the help of savvy jazz singer Lady Midnight (Vivica A. Fox), slick private dick Takiri (Lyriq Bent) and a Grammy studded 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.
