In the 80s and early 2000s, Atlanta was more than excited by the funky and soulful events curated by Jason Orr. Each event was an "event!" The musicians who graced the stage are still on your playlist: Jill Scott, Omar, Janelle Monae, Goodie Mob, Cody ChestnuTT, India Arie…
Spanning the late 1980s to the early 2000s, the film chronicles the evolution of the FunkJazz Kafé Arts & Music Festival, in the process examining the roots of soul music and the challenges it faces in the mainstream music industry.
