Joe Pesci On Guitar
16 July 2000 | by (Northampton) – See all my reviews

Another rock n roll/quasi-dramatic picture from the 60's, this film features that one hit wonder "Peppermint Twist," by Joey Dee. The film is USA network material, centering on a good o' Lounge Club in the city, where musicians are situated with bad acting roles and free booze. The film's highlight is seeing a young Joe Pesci as a stand-in guitarist for the Starliters. I understand Pesci had an ear for music before acting; this film would lead him to the latter.
