Detroit, Michigan, 1959.

Berry Gordy gathers the best musicians in the city's thriving jazz and blues scene for his new record company: Motown. For the next 14 years, these players are the heartbeat on all the hits from Motown's Detroit era.

By the end of their phenomenal run, this unheralded group of musicians plays on more Number One hits that the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley and The Beetles combined, making them the hit machine in the history of popular music.

They call themselves the Funk Brothers. But no one knows their names... this is their story.
