"Thunder Soul" shares the extraordinary life of Conrad "Prof" Johnson, an outstanding musician and high school band director that released eight albums with The Kashmere High School Stage Band in the early 1970s. More than that, Prof was a phenomenal human being that helped mold the lives of each and every one of his students. His story transcends music and exemplifies the positive impact that one person can make on his community and the world.
I got the chance to sit down with band members, Reginald Nelson and Gerald Calhoun, as well as Prof's sons, Ronald and Conrad Jr, to discuss the documentary, the music and the legacy left behind.
“It’s such an entertaining and inspirational story that touches your soul and awakens the human spirit
in the way that only love and the power of music can.” - Jamie Foxx
*A special shout out to Joey Flores, who was kind enough to let us use his studio space for the interview and buy sushi that no one ate except for me.
