In 1969, the band Sweetwater led by lead vocalist Nansi Nevins opened Woodstock and subsequently got considerable media attention, appearing on a number of TV shows. But just as they appeared to be getting a really break big, they just disappeared. Thirty years later, a cable TV reporter for MIX TV, a musical station, is removed from her show because of being stoned on 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

The band is shown playing a Love-in in 1967. The PA system is a modern style that didn't exist at the time. Wedge monitor speakers were virtually non-existent. The Shure SM-58 microphone hadn't been introduced yet, though similar Shure microphones were in common usage. Marshall amplifiers were quite rare, expensive and hard to get. A band like Sweetwater would have used Fender, Vox or Standell amps. The microphones used at Woodstock were Shure SM 56 models, not the SM 58 models used in the film. See more »

Since the Power Rangers I have been an Amy Jo Johnson fan! Since then she has seemed to gain more and more success.
Nansi was cheated from her dream. When her band became "it" tragedy struck. She continued to fight to keep in the buisness. Because she was "a singer [she] played for half a million people and 20 times that much on TV." It really was a good movie, whether you are into the 60's thing or not.
