Music meets the Mob in this bio-doc narrated by Steven Van Zandt. You may have never heard of Bert Berns, but you know the enduring songs he has written and produced: Twist & Shout, Cry to Me, Tell Him, Hang On Sloopy, I Want Candy, and Everybody Needs Somebody to Love. Berns' sessions made legends of The Isley Brothers, The Drifters, Ben E. King, Wilson Pickett, Van Morrison, and Neil Diamond, and his songs became chart-topping covers for the likes of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and Janis Joplin. Included in the film are interviews with Ronald Isley, Ben E. King, Solomon Burke, Van Morrison and Paul McCartney.
Filmmaker Brett Berns will be present for the screening.
