Detroit, Michigan, 1959. Berry Gordy gathers the best musicians in the city's thriving jazz and blues scene for his new record company: Motown. For the next 14 years, these players are the heartbeat on all the hits from Motown's Detroit era. By the end of their phenomenal run, this unheralded group of musicians plays on more Number One hits that the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley and The Beetles combined, making them the hit machine in the history of popular music. They call themselves the Funk Brothers. But no one knows their names... this is their story.

This movie gives you the secrets. It is a well put together and thought out story of the Funk Brothers, which is what the studio musicians for Motown were called. You can easily follow their rise to fame and their struggle to gain recognition for their work.You will not be disappointed if you are a fan of the Motown hits. I recommend this video for all musicians and fans of music.
This is truly an amazing documentary about the Motown House Band: called The Funk Brothers. They never received any publicity or credit for the hard work that they contributed to the Motown Sound. Thanks to Joe Hunter, who was a member of the band and the leader!!!
