More Than Just a Music Documentary…

The Bayou…and the Ghost Played On depicts the life and times of Georgetown’s distinctive musical landmark. From 1953 to 1998, the nation’s most artful musicians dressed The Bayou first in Dixieland Jazz notes, later rock and roll. Dixieland Jazz icons Wild Bill Whelan and Joe Rinaldi provided the Bayou its musical seed; rock heroes Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Foreigner, Kiss and Dire Straits helped the club blossom amid the raucous, anything-goes social landscape of the 1970s.

On New Year’s Eve 1998, the last drunk was bounced, the last beer poured and the last note played at The Bayou. Metro Teleproductions captured the final performances, the parting shots and the vivid, waning breaths of a Washington, DC, music legend.

Through painstaking research and dozens of interviews with musicians, employees and Bayoupatrons, we’ve fashioned a compelling visual narrative – a story that captures all the club’s rhythms: its development as a unique showplace, its dalliances with Ted Kennedy, Errol Flynn and Mickey Mantle, its debauchery, its dance with death.

The Bayou...and the Ghost Played On

the bayou the box office opens
“The Bayou”…The Box Office Opens

What do baseball Hall of Famer Mickey Mantle and Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant have in common? Both were thrown out of The Bayou. A guy who became an orthopedic surgeon got booted too. Iggy Pop, in a stage-swept moment, spat on the head of an eventual USA Today editor. The impish young lady who paid a roadie to smuggle her into a Kiss show on a covered dolly? She\'s a social worker. For its 46 years, The Bayou transcended a rollicking music hall; it was a roadhouse through which lives traveled. How the memories rev.

Here\'s your chance to drive that dazzling lane once more. Metro Teleproductions, through the non-profit Potomac River Jazz Club (a 501 (c)(3) organization), seeks tax-deductible contributions to complete post-production on The Bayou . . . and the Ghost Played On, a documentary on Georgetown\'s unorthodox, bygone music hall. Production costs for this 80-to 90-minute documentary are estimated to exceed $300,000. MTI hopes to elicit the support of production and underwriting partners, and any cultural archeologists keen to unearth musical treasure. Contributions may be made to:
