FANNY: The Right to Rock!
Director: Bobbi Jo Hart
Producers: Bobbi Jo Hart, Robbie Hart
Celebrating the untold story of one of the most important rock bands you’ve never heard of. Back in the 1960s, three Filipina American teenagers played together in a self-founded, 1960’s Sacramento garage band.
They morphed into the ferocious rock group “Fanny”, the first band of women to release an LP with a major label (Warner/Reprise, 1970). Despite releasing five critically acclaimed albums, counting David Bowie as one of their most vocal fans, Fanny’s groundbreaking impact in music has been lost in the mists of time. The bandmates reunite 50 years later with a new rock record deal and a well-deserved chance to right the wrongs of music history.
The film also features music icons Joe Elliott, Bonnie Raitt, Todd Rundgren, Kathy Valentine, Kate Pierson, John Sebastian, Cherie Currie, Charles Neville, Gail Ann Dorsey, Earl Slick and Jeff “Skunk” Baxter. Photography Credits: Linda Wolf, Marita Madeloni, Sherry Rayn Barnett.
