The New Main Street Singers
The final and largest group from A Mighty Wind are The New Main Street Singers.
The group is a reformation of the original Main Street Singers, led by Terry Bohner (John Michael Higgins) and his wife Laurie (Jane Lynch).
I've included the grand finale of the concert, the title track "A Mighty Wind". It won a Grammy for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media.
Also, we've got a scene featuring brilliant comic actor Fred Willard interrupting a band practice session.
Finally, we have a clip from the film that gives you a good feel for the back story portion of the film. Just great stuff. Again, if you haven't seen it check it out. The music holds up to multiples viewings/listens and the comedy is top notch.
