So if you’re in NOLA, you’ve got TWO nights of amazing gospel film to get you through the week of JazzFest @ the Zeitgeist Arts Center: Mike McGonigal’s “Shout Troubles Over” and our very own “By and By: New Orleans Gospel at the Crossroads” — the only things missing will be me (I’ll be tied to Baltimore, but Joe will be there), and “Say Amen, Somebody”. Thanks, Lauren Cargo!

Just back from an amazing premiere at the Louisiana International Film Festival, and now “By and By” will make its second debut at the Maryland Film Fest, May 8 – 12! As we get more info on screening dates, we’ll definitely share!

We’ve posted a whole slew of new film stills on our Dropbox page. This shot of James Williams, Sr. and Keith Williams singing has to be one of my favorites from the film.

Kickstart launch & the Crown Seekers take the Gospel Tent!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2012 by byandbythemovie

It’s been an exciting week!

For one, we launched our Kickstarter campaign to raise finishing funds for the film, and we’re already 12% there in less than a week.

In the lead-up to Jazz Fest, OffBeat Magazine published this wonderful profile of the Crown Seekers and By and By.

And the New Orleans Times-Picayune’s NOLA.COM site had this to say about the Crown Seekers opening gig in the Gospel Tent on Friday.

And on Tuesday, we’ll start posting our EXCLUSIVE content for folks who pledge $1 or more to our Kickstarter campaign, including the full performance from this moment in the French Quarter with Greg Sanders of the Crown Seekers.

Stay tuned!

A sweet find in the Amistad Archives at Tulane University a few weeks ago.
