The title of the documentary came from the title of Charles Brown song 'Virus Called The Blues', a verson of which is available on the 1990 album 'All My Life' and of which a covered in the documentary by Billy Jenkins.
The story in the programme follows this pattern: Jenkins convinces his band to do a one off benefit gig to raise money to purchase better lighting in the street surrounding the Theatre. During the run up to the gig the band lose the location of the venue while out in the groups Reliant Robin. As a result the audience are left waiting. Bandleader Billy Jenkins argues with the band and bass player Thad Kelly walks out.
In reality this was a genuine benefit gig and for the most part, a true story and as a result funds were raised and better lighting has since been installed since the documentary was made.
The film was edited by Noel Curry and the Promo was edited by Mike Latham.
