Chasin' Dem Blues, the untold story of Paramount Records, is a foot-stomping, roof-raising, multi-media musical celebration. It thrills audiences with storytellers' accounts of how a small Midwest town changed the landscape of American music, and ushered in the sound of the early 20th century, a sound that still reverberates today.
