"Soul Men"

Singing trio Marcus Hooks, Floyd Henderson, and Louis Hinds break apart in the 60's.  Marcus moves on to be an R&B Legend; Floyd and Louis team up as a duo, "The Real Deal," and become one hit wonders.  Over 40 years later, Marcus suddenly dies and a high-profile tribute at the Apollo Theater is planned in his memory. Floyd, who is bored in retirement, convinces Louis, an ex-con, to team up again as the "Real Deal" for Marcus.  What follows is a cross-country road-trip to get to the Apollo in five days.
Slow going, slightly picks up in the middle, and then it kinda stays there.  Save it for a rainy day.  Wait for a much later date!
