ZZ Top documentary That Little Ol Band From Texas gets home release

ZZ Top’s 2019 documentary, “That Little Ol’ Band From Texas”, will see a home release early next year following a series of cinema screenings this past summer.

Produced by Banger Films, the project tells the story of how three teenage bluesmen - Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard – became one of the biggest bands on the planet, all while maintaining a surrealist mystique that continues to intrigue fans and entice onlookers 50 years after the band’s inception.

Due February 28 on DVD, Blu-ray and digitally, the project presents interviews with the band members alongside conversations with such high-profile fans as Billy Bob Thornton and Queen Of The Stone Age's Josh Homme, as well as never-before-seen archival footage.

Shot exclusively for this film, an intimate ZZ Top performance at the historic Gruene Hall – the oldest dance hall in Texas – is intercut throughout the documentary, which also features the Ham Estate Archive, which spotlights rare pre-Eliminator concert footage from 1976 and 1981.

ZZ Top continue their 50th anniversary tour with a pair of shows later this month and several already confirmed for next spring.
