Bill Haley’s Original Comets Rock Around the Clock- Live!
BMP Productions in conjunction with Octalouie, executive producers Brian Martin and Alan Parowski
Produced & Directed by Eric Predoehl
It’s not often that one gets a chance to work with bona fide music legends, so the Octalouie team jumped at a chance to work with the band that backed Bill Haley over 50 years ago. “Rock Around the Clock” was the first rock and roll record ever purchased by millions of people, including John Lennon, who was inspired by this music to form the Beatles. The Octalouie team was honored to work with these energetic grandfathers of rock, who demonstrated that age is no detriment to those that love this music. Eric Predoehl directed and edited this program with Octalouie partner Jesse Block. Aron Ranen was brought as a third camera operator, and Marcus Buick oversaw audio production. Working closely with executive producers Brian Martin and Alan Parowski, the Octalouie team is proud to present a powerful document of the Original Comets that we hope will be released soon for the DVD market.
