The afternoon shines a light on the unsung heroes of the phenomenal Motown record label, The Funk Brothers.

The house band for Motown, The Funk Brothers performed on numerous Number 1. singles and are finally given their due in Standing On The Shadows Of Motown.

The day then moves to hip-hop with Beats, Rhymes and Life: The Travels Of A Tribe Called Quest.

The American hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest formed in the 1980s and enjoyed commercial success with many of their songs are regarded as classics.

In the film, Actor Michael Rapaport looks at their work and the drama behind the group.

The evening concludes with The Last Waltz, cited as one of the greatest music concert films ever made. Martin Scorsese’s document of the final concert by The Band has set the tone for all concert films that followed.
