Thursday: Celebrate the Rivalry

When movie maker Rick Shadle asked local pop act Hero Factor to participate in a soundtrack for his documentary chronicling the gridiron greatness that is the Jenks/Union football rivalry, the word ‘no’ was not an option.
That was back in 2003, said Eric Arndt, founding member and bassist for the band.
“We pretty much had to say yes,” he laughed. “I mean, Eric kept reminding us that it was a movie about the Jenks/Union rivalry. It’s part of Tulsa history.”
Hero Factor band members will perform, as will Tulsa songwriter and musician Ray Hamilton, at the movie’s premiere on Thursday at Jenks RiverWalk.
Music starts at Dirty’s, 600 RiverWalk Terrace, at 8 p.m.
Included on the album are Hero Factor songs “How Good I Am,” “Thanks for Nothing,” “Down” and “Breathe.”
The band was also asked to record U2’s hit, “Where the Streets Have No Name.”
Tulsa songwriter Hamilton and musician Dave Armstrong also appear on the album, as does pop icon Dwight Twilley. They and a host of Tulsa musicians perform “Blood Brothers,” a song written by Bruce Springsteen.
Both covers are compelling and unique.
And, hear funk y, upbeat remixes of “Trojanz” and “Skinz” fight songs, as written and produced by Manny Saiz and Terr y Poindexter.
The CD is $12.99 on the movie’s official Web site, http://www.kingofthemountainthemovie.com/, or at local Borders bookstores, and at both movie premiere sites.
“KING OF THE MOUNTAIN: A RIVALRY IN THE HEARTLAND”
Movie premiere times: Movie premieres Thursday at RiverWalk Movies in Jenks, 6:30 p.m., 8:45 p.m., 8:55 p.m.; at Starworld 20, 6 p.m. and 8:15 p.m.
