*subject to change:
Mark Maxey, W.G. Snuffy Walden
W.G. 'Snuffy' Walden may be one of the most influential (but least known) contributors to the soundtrack of your life. If you watched thirtysomething, The Wonder Years, Friday Night Lights, or The West Wing, the guitarist Snuffy Walden possibly had more impact on you than Eric Clapton or Jimi Hendrix. Snuffy started out like many talented musicians in the '60s and '70s, embracing the Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll lifestyle, while trying to make it in a rock band. Unlike his music peers, Snuffy quietly transitioned into one of the most successful, well liked and impactful television composers of our time. Up To Snuff is the story of that metamorphosis, recounted by the likes of Aaron Sorkin, Timothy Busfield, Martin Sheen, Tom Arnold, Eric Burden (of the Animals), and many others. As Snuffy himself says, 'I didn't choose a life in music, music chose me.' Learn how this massively influential, near unknown survived the '60s and '70s to help define the '90s and '00s. —Jeff Morriss

Sunday's screening at The Playhouse will be followed by a special panel discussing Snuffy's legendary career in music and film.
