Queen of the Boogie

Queen of the Boogie

Hadda Brooks is Queen of the Boogie!

This is an intimate and poignant musical portrait of the boogie woogie queen and torch singer who received the recognition and audiences she had been searching for throughout the fits and starts of her 50 year career. Featuring Selene Luna, The Senator Eugene Wright, John Epperson aka Lypsinca, Little Jimmy Scott, Austin Young and Barry Pett.

Hadda Brooks ( 1916 – 2002) was an American pianist, vocalist and composer. Her first single, "Swingin' the Boogie", came out in 1945. She was billed as "Queen of the Boogie"

Film makers, Austin Young and Barry Pett, take a wild romp through Miss Brooks' stomping grounds, Hollywood and San Francisco, in a documentary that will have you laughing and crying at the same time. The under appreciated star put Modern Records on the musical map, was first black woman to have her own TV show, and appeared in films with stars like Humphrey Bogart. Bonnie Raitt calls Hadda an 'American Treasure,' and Brooks' is recognized by the R&B hall of fame as a pioneer of rock 'n' roll.̌
