HOT FLASH chronicles the history of the legendary blues band Saffire - The Uppity Blues Women. With their potent combination of sassy lyrics and fierce playing styles, the trio of Ann Rabson, Gaye Adegbalola, and Andra Faye have entertained audiences for over twenty-five years.
For the first time, Saffire's complete story is told. The trio overcame personal struggles and industry stereotypes to emerge as one of the most well-known blues bands playing today. The documentary features original footage and photographs from the band's personal collection. Interviews with current and former band members, record company executives and music critics provide an insider's look into the band. Hot Flash includes concert footage of Saffire performing at the historic Ram's Head in Maryland and the Wolf Trap in Virgina. With extra concert footage and extended interviews, Hot Flash is a must have for any blues fan and serves as a fitting tribute to these music pioneers.
