Storyline

In 1969, the rock band Sweetwater led by lead singer Nansi Nevins opened Woodstock and subsequently received considerable media attention, appearing on a number of television shows. However, just as they appeared to be receiving a really lucky break, they just disappeared. Thirty years later, a cable television reporter for MIX-TV, a musical station, is removed from her show because of being stoned on the air. Her station gives her a choice of being dismissed or investigating what happened to Sweetwater. A blending of modern day fiction and past fact is then blended in this biographical story.

Goofs

This film erroneously claims several times that Sweetwater opened the 1969 Woodstock Festival. In truth, Sweetwater was the second act on the bill, after actual opener Richie Havens, but they were the first band to play. See more »

A 'Behind the Music' Movie
18 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

I just finished watching this TV movie & couldn't believe that people hadn't already began to comment about it. I loved it, personally. Amy Jo Johnson shows she's more than Julie (of "Felicity"), giving a wonderful performance. I have to admit, the working in of the reporter's storyline seemed a little inappropriate. They barely touched it, but tried to make it seem like a big thing. All in all, this was really good, I thought.
