Wichita's Rudy Love & The Love Family 'Funkumentary' Comes To Tallgrass
After already making waves in Europe, a new film about Wichita musicians Rudy Love & The Love Family is making its American debut at the Tallgrass Film Festival.
This is Love centers around the R&B performers and the ups and down of their careers, from their beginnings in the 60s, through fame with Sly and the Family Stone in the 70s, and the rocky years throughout.
This is Love plays Friday night at the Orpheum Theater at 7:30 p.m. Director John Alexander, executive producer Shawn Rhodes, producer JC Guest and Rudy Love are scheduled to conduct a Q&A after film. Rudy Love & The Love family are scheduled to perform Friday at the Tallgrass Centerpiece Gala, 115 N. Mead, at 10 p.m.
KMUW's Carla Eckels sat down with Rudy and Bob Love to talk about their careers, the music industry and the film.
