'Magic Music Movie' comes to the Ross

The Magic Music Band

"40 Years in the Making: The Magic Music Movie," a documentary that captures the reunification of a popular band 40 years after their last show, opens Nov. 9 at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln's Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center.

Magic Music was a popular band in Boulder, Colorado, in the 1970s. Expected to become wildly successful, the band broke up in 1976 before landing a record deal, leaving almost no recordings of their music behind.

Writer and producer Lee Aronsohn was one of Magic Music's biggest fans. When he searched for the band's songs online many years later, he found no trace, and set out on a mission to reunite the band's members with the hopes of having them perform one last show.
