What does Texas sound like? Doug Sahm

Noted Texas author Joe Nick Patoski and award-winning film company Arts+Labor are collaborating on a feature-length documentary about Doug titled All About the Groove. The film is currently in production, with the goal of being completed by spring 2015.

The non profit Society for the Preservation of Texas Music, a 501(c)(3) organization, was formed in November 2013 to help with the film. The Board of Directors include Austin Chronicle and SXSW Co-founder Louis Black, record executive Bill Bentley, attorney Tom Mason, and Arts+Labor Executive Producer Craig Parks.

Great News! A fellow DougHead has generously offered to match every donation made to the Society up to the first $250,000. If we hit this goal, the documentary is fully funded. As you can see above, we're off to a great start. So please help us by turning one dollar into two. Every penny counts, the more of you we hear from the more it helps.
