Friendship, Rivalry, and Rock-n-roll all set in the late 80's. Darren struggles to get out of the shadow of his very popular friend, Bobby Manelli, instead of only being known as 'his blonde headed friend'.
AIR BAND or How I Hated Being Bobby Manelli's Blonde Headed Friend is a tale of friendship, rivalry, and rock n roll set in the late 1980's. Bobby Manelli and Darren Woodward are best friends and founders of the top winning air band* Macabre (pronounced Ma-Cab-Ree), which regularly performs at the local skating rink. Despite being best friends and equals back home in the neighborhood, at the skating rink Darren has always lived in Bobby's shadow as "his blond headed friend". Their friendship is pushed to the limit when rival air band leader Jonathan Drake steps onto the scene to challenge Macabre's long held position as number one. During the intense competition which ensues, Darren must prove to himself, his friend Bobby, and an audience that he is ready to stand in his own spotlight. *a group which performs with imaginary instruments and lip-synchs to a popular rock song Written by
