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. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

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 »

Pretty Good
16 August 1999 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Normally, I don't watch the movies on VH1, but this one caught my eye. I didn't know much about Sweetwater, and the story interested me. I don't have to blab how good it was or flaws or anything, but all in all it was entertaining. Amy Jo Johnson did a great job making her character, Nancy believable. If you have the chance to see it before VH1 stops playing it, I suggest you watch it. For me, at least, it was worth my viewing time.
