Boogie Stomp! The Movie

Two red hot pianos. Decades of virtuoso playing. American roots music. One stomping movie.

Boogie Stomp is the award winning true story of two men determined to remind America of the backbone of much of its popular music – boogie woogie piano. From the earliest days of jazz to today’s hottest rock and roll songs, rhythm and improvisation over a blues foundation has been the hallmark of our nation’s unique contribution to the world of music.

The flying fingers, rapid rhythms and intense concentration of Bob Baldori – longtime piano and harp player for Chuck Berry – and Bob Seeley – the last living link to the origins of American piano music and the legends from the epoch of boogie woogie music in the 30s and 40s – drive Boogie Stomp. You’ll cheer them on as they rip through songs, inspire swing dancers, stump across American and Europe – and Russia – to present their music to enthusiastic audiences, and fight for the opportunity to remind the world of America’s forgotten music.

You’ll also learn how difficult it is to make a living in show business – particularly if you are over 50 – as the pair face promoters who underestimate their stamina, perseverance and talent. It’s a riveting story, told with humor and depth, while delivering scorched earth AMERICAN piano music at its best.
