Make ’Em Dance: The Hackerberry Ramblers’ Story

In their nineties when this was filmed, members of the The Hackberry Ramblers have been playing a toe-tapping blend of Cajun music and Western swing for seven decades. Part band biography, part road movie, Make Em Dance keeps up with these agin’ ragin’ Cajuns on tour from the Louisiana bayou to MTV. Aired on PBS’ Independent Lens.
