Let's have a party.....

Received an email from Les Luchter 'bout new Wanda Jackson film....

Thought you might be interested in a film trailer for a new documentary on Wanda Jackson, which is currently in post-production: trailer

Here’s some background info:

KPI, a New York City-based television and new media production company, has completed location shooting across the U.S. and Europe for EVERY NIGHT IS SATURDAY NIGHT, a high definition documentary film that tells the unsung story of rock 'n' roll pioneer Wanda Jackson. Jackson played an integral part in the history of early rock, and toured with Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, June Carter and Johnny Cash—the singers immortalized in the motion picture WALK THE LINE.

The film is being produced in association with Los Angeles-based producer Joanne Fish. The team has followed the tireless 68 year old Jackson and her husband/manager Wendell Goodman as they travel from honky tonks to Lincoln center as well as Sweden and Finland. Production began in June 2005 when the filmmakers documented the recording of Jackson's new release Wanda Jackson Remembers Elvis. The project is in post-production. It will be released in 3rd quarter 2006.
