Saturday, March 6 at 11 p.m. – The T.A.M.I Show Rock and Rolls First Concert

(Rochester, NY) Filmed just eight months after The Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show, The T.A.M.I. Show introduced rock ’n’ soul youth culture to America in the first concert movie of the rock era. One of the rarest and most sought-after performance films from its time, the 1964 concert event featured future Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Rolling Stones, James Brown, Chuck Berry, The Beach Boys, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson And The Miracles, The Supremes and many other American and British Invasion hit makers in their prime. This legendary film hasn't been seen in its entirety since it originally appeared in theaters in 1964. Mastered from a new High Definition transfer, this version features the Beach Boys' performances that were removed following the film's initial theatrical run.The T.A.M.I Show – Rock and Rolls First Concert airs Saturday, March 6 at 11 p.m., and again on Sunday, March 7 at 4 p.m. on WXXI- TV( DT 21.1/ cable 1011 and 11).
