Watch Trailer for ’70s Hippie Film “Magic Music Movie”

Flashback time – if you can remember the ’70s, you probably weren’t really there.

As Billboard so succinctly puts it – “An Elusive ’70s Band Reunites for One Last Jam in ’40 Years in the Making: The Magic Music Movie’

Indeed, the Magic Music band was a celebrated proto-jam/cosmic folk band out of Boulder back in the day that was tipped to be the next big thing. Until they weren’t, that is, and they eventually split up in 1975 with no albums recorded. So Emmy nominated producer Lee Aronosohn (Big Bang Theory) somehow got it in his head that he wanted to make a documentary about the group, and after tracking down the original members, he even engineered a reunion concert that he was able to film for doc.

 

It’s since been screened at a number of film festivals – including the Boulder Film Festival, natch, and will start opening at very select theaters starting this weekend. Then in early September it will be released digitally via The Orchard. Below, check out the official movie trailer.
