SH-BOOM: Quest for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The year is 1954, and the Chords are about to make history all over again.There are 101 stories on the way to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, none quite as unique as the boys who started it all.The story will take an in-depth look at their trails and tribulations. Their conquests and achievements from the birth of the ground breaking classic, "Sh-Boom”, written in Buddy McRae's Buick convertible.And its unintentional debut, a cosmic accident, when Huggy Boy, a DJ in Los Angeles decided to play the "B”-side of a record just for the hell of it and spun a little of history."Sh-Boom"sold 100,000 copies in just seven days. Many music historians considered it the first Rock & Roll hit. Topping the charts at #1 and staying there for 14 consecutive weeks, making The Chords the first Rhythm & Blues group to crack pop music's top ten!Prior to "Sh-Boom”, "race music"hits were confined to black radio stations and jukeboxes in African American nightclubs. Through unprecedented record sales, in spite of a country divided and at war with itself. And offer a macro look at the racial climate in America, the civil rights movement through the turbulent ‘50s & ‘60s and how that prejudice impacted the microcosm of the music business and ultimately the fate of the Chords.
