OGDEN — A faint sound of drums and an electric guitar could be overheard as the audience streamed out of Peery's Egyptian Theater on Tuesday.
Nearly 600 guests followed the sound to the Eccles Conference Center, where a reception was held following the showing of "The Music Never Stopped."
Inside, the Greg Simpson Band played music from the 1960s, while event volunteers passed out appetizers and desserts. The buzz following the movie was on the positive effects of music.
The film chronicles how music brings reality back into the life of a young man whose memory was robbed by a strangling brain tumor. It's also a story of how he reconnects with his father.
"Music has that same thing that smells have — to bring you back to a moment that you thought you had completely forgotten," said Scott Adsit, who plays a doctor in the film. "Music can be that instant slide into the past. It's like the odors for the ears."
At the after party, many were eating, some were dancing, but nearly all were talking about "Music."
"I loved the film," said reception attendee Blake Citte. "I liked that it took that type of a tragedy to get the father and the son reacquainted."
Citte's favorite song is "Don't be Shy," by Cat Stevens. Other attendees took time to talk about their own favorites.
"Anything from the Stones or the Beatles," said Gene Fulkerson, who was in town from San Diego.
Ben Mortensen, of Hyrum, listed the Grateful Dead and Phish as the two groups he loved the most. Buddy Boor of Washington, D.C., said his favorite song was "Satisfaction," by the Rolling Stones, while Steve Cantwell of Eden went with "Truckin' " by the Grateful Dead.
" 'Let It Be' by the Beatles is the song I like best," said Pastor Diane of Layton.
"The Beatles are my favorite," said Linda Binkley. "Listening to their music reminds me of good memories of when I was young."
Michael Fenton of North Ogden likes the music of Chicago — particularly the song "25 or 6 to 4."
Jonie Wall said the Moody Blues' "Nights in White Satin" is her favorite, while her 19-year-old granddaughter, Kelssi Woodland, connects with the music of Bayside.
