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 »

Brought back memories of songs not heard for 30 years
The general theme of the movie was good. It was overplayed in some portions, but what I really enjoyed was hearing songs from their first album. It was sad to see how so many people were effected by one tragic event. Amy Jo did a great job of playing Nancy and her voice was great.
