Dave Grohl’s Sound City Players to perform at Sundance

Dave Grohl’s directorial debut, “Sound City,” will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 18 before its theatrical release next month.

The documentary chronicles the story of the Van Nuys, California studio of the same name, where music legends recorded major projects throughout the years – including Nirvana’s 1991 smash, “Nevermind,” which featured Grohl on drums.

Now, the rocker has announced that he’s bringing a collection of musicians, billed as the Sound City Players, to Sundance for a concert at Park City Live on the night of the premiere.

There’s no word who will join the head Foo Fighter on stage, but there’s a serious collection of players in the film (see complete list here) who may be a part of the performance.

For the movie, Dave cobbles together a troupe of iconic musicians and singers who once called the studio home. Stevie Nicks, Neil Young, Tom Petty, Trent Reznor and Paul McCartney are just some of the legends who jam with Grohl and create a brand-new album on that revered soundboard.
