Closing Time At Doc’s Music Hall

A film about Muncie, Indiana physician and musician Dr. John Peterson, featuring the legendary music venue he owned for twenty years.


"Mugge is one of America’s most respected music documentarians for his films on blues and zydeco, Ruben Blades and Sun Ra. Little wonder that much of Giving Up the Ghosts’ running time is given to artfully assembled performance scenes as Peterson, a keyboardist as well as physician (hence “Doc’s”), leads his capable jazz band through joyous renditions of Thelonious Monk, The Doors and Smokey Robinson."
- David Luhrssen, Shepherd Express
