Boulder, Colorado, much like Woodstock, NY, was a mecca for peace, love and music in the 60s and 70s. Fresh out of the Woodstock Concert era, a band of hippies, with a sound reminiscent of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and the Grateful Dead, was roaming around Boulder, playing wherever they could and winning a dedicated following. Among those fans was university student Lee Aronsohn, who was deeply affected by the band, tracking them everywhere and memorizing their songs. Although the musicians played two of the earliest Telluride Bluegrass Festivals, they broke up in 1976 without ever releasing an album. Decades later, that same student, now a successful television producer ("The Big Bang Theory", "Two and a Half Men") set out to find the scattered members of Boulder's most influential and elusive jam band, "Magic Music," hoping to get them to play one last show. This is his and their story. Indeed, a magical one. — Sveltana Krotek
Television producer Lee Aronsohn is credited for work on shows such as The Love Boat, Murphy Brown, Cybill, and is best known as one of the creative minds behind television's beloved hit sitcoms Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory. A University of Colorado Alum, Aronsohn traveled back to Boulder for the first time in 40 years to tell the story of Magic Music, his first feature length documentary.
