SOMERS, N.Y. - Ed Liss, a member of the Northeast Westchester (NEW) Rotary Club in Somers, has produced a film selected to be included in the Peekskill Film Festival on Sunday, May 15.
To be admitted into the festival, movies are screened by a review board. Liss’ documentary, “The Great American Jukebox,” highlights the musical periods during which jukeboxes were a large part of American culture—the Jazz Age, Big Band, Rhythm and Blues, as well as early Rock and Roll. The music has been recorded from the original jukeboxes using special microphones, which capture the precise emotion of the recording.
The presentation will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. Sunday, May 15, in the Peekskill Coffee House. All proceeds go to the The Field Library, a non-profit organization.
