Hang on Sloopy: The Movie
In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Hang On Sloopy, Ohio’s most iconic rock anthem, artists created Hang On Sloopy: The Movie.
The 68-minute “ROCKumentary” delves into a fascinating array of compelling stories associated with Ohio’s favorite rock song.
The Movie is a fast-paced, family-friendly movie that will be enjoyed by fans of music and sports alike, and especially every Buckeyes fan. The DVD captures the history behind the song and makes a great gift for anyone who has ever chanted O-H-I-O during the chorus of the song.
So just who was Sloopy? The movie attempts to lift the shroud of mystery surrounding the song’s namesake against the backdrop of how the song became so culturally ingrained into Ohio’s sports landscape, especially that of The Ohio State University.
The movie features interviews and historic footage from a wide variety of rock and R&B stars, including The McCoys, the catalyst for the song taking on the OSU campus. Also featured in the film is commentary and insight from current and former OSU coaches such as Urban Meyer and Earle Bruce, Heisman Trophy winners Troy Smith and Eddie George, and distinguished OSU faculty, administration, and alumni, along with a special performance of Hang On Sloopy in Ohio Stadium by Rick Derringer, lead singer of the McCoys, and The Ohio State Marching Band (TBDBITL) before more than 100,000 screaming Buckeye fans.
The Movie was produced locally by The TEAM Productions and Sway The Crowd Productions, both of Columbus, OH.
