Satan & Adam with The Blues Doctors Performance @ 27th Annual Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival
(V. Scott Balcerek, U.S., 2018, 80 min.)
$20 for film and performance

One day in 1986, Adam Gussow, a white, Ivy League-educated harmonica player, found himself nursing a broken heart and walking down the street in Harlem, a block from the Apollo Theater. There, he came on a one-man  band: Sterling Magee. Better known as Satan, Magee was a local legend with heavy blues guitar riffs and makeshift percussion instruments. Word around the neighborhood was that he had backed James Brown at the Apollo and cut singles for Ray Charless Tangerine label, but no one really knew for sure. When Adam sat in on a session with Satan that day, a most unlikely connection was formed. Their partnership and friendship would transcend the racial tensions of a segregated city and the anxiety of a neighborhood that was hyper-aware of the perils of gentrification. Satan & Adam is a celebration of the transformative power of music, and the bonds that develop when worlds collide and artists collaborate. Director V. Scott Balcerek pulls together more than two decades of documentary footage to chart the duos friendship from busking in the streets of Harlem to such major venues as the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

With subject Adam Gussow and a post-film performance by the Blue Doctors, with Gussow on harmonica and percussion and Alan Gross on guitar.
