Run Time: 84 min

Synopsis: SUSHI & SAUCE PIQUANTE is a film on the life and music of guitar legend Gerry McGee, an American master borne of an American master, famed Cajun fiddler Denis McGee. Besides Gerry's session work with Delaney and Bonnie, John Mayall, Rita Coolidge, Barbra Streisand, Elvis and so many other influential musicians, his association with The Ventures since the 1960s led to his 2008 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The film blends interviews with the likes of Kris Kristofferson, Dr. John and Edward James Olmos with archival footage and stills and live action 35mm and Red cinematography to tell one of the least known stories of an individual who has had a major impact on the history of Rock and Roll.

"Gerry McGee is probably the best guitar player I've ever played with and he has a voice that's as soulful as Ray Charles." --Kris Kristofferson (in a review for the Baton Rouge Advocate by Matthew Sigur)

Screenings: Cinema on the Bayou Film Festival, French Quarter Fest Film Festival
