Movie Info

Joseph Ellison wrote and directed this engaging film about a teenager in love with rock n' roll music of the '50s. Joey (Neill Barry), a 17-year-old guitar player, likes to play his instrument in the style of his dad, Joe Sr. (James Quinn), who used to be the lead singer for a group called the Delsonics. Joey gets a group of his high school friends together and forms their own rock n' roll band. The band manages to win an important audition to play as the back-up band for a '50s revival concert at Radio City Music Hall called the Royal New York Doo-Wopp Show, where some of the original rock groups from the 1950s and 1960s are scheduled to appear. Cameo appearances by The Limelights, the Silhouettes, the Adlibs, the Elegants, Scream-in' Jay Hawkins, and the surviving members of the Teenagers grace the film.
