The History Of Port Huron Music – Something In The Water – Huge Hit!

McMorran Theatre was packed Saturday evening as music lovers checked out memorabilia in the lobby from Port Huron’s days past, and then moved into the theatre to relive the progression of music in Port Huron from 1950 to 1971.  Chris Troy, producer and director of the film, said he was thrilled and humbled by the turnout of 678 people.  Response from the crowd was overwhelming as the story unfolded, from the early days of local clubs, when Port Huron saw 17 venues that offered live music, through the expanse of the country music scene, to when the Dome was burned down.   And this was just Part !.  Many attendees laughed, teared up, and relived the days gone by.  There were a number of members of past music groups reunited for the evening, and memories were brought to the surface.  The overall response from the crowd was incredibly positive.  Troy got it right in this documentary film and attendees remarked they are eagerly looking forward to Part 2 which will cover the years 1972- 2000.   Cathie Martin’s WGRT news director (con’t) attended the film, and stated, “I believe this documentary is going places outside of Port Huron.  Troy’s story-telling is remarkable.  He draws you in from the opening scene, and keeps you eager for more as he makes you laugh, cry a bit, and remember the fast changing pace of the music scene.”
