Storyline

Shot over two years and in seven countries, the feature-length documentary Whiskey on a Sunday is an intimate portrait of the Irish-infused rock band Flogging Molly. The film tracks the group of musicians from their bar-band roots to their current success, including footage of the band in the studio, on tour, at home and at their sold-out homecoming performance at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles Whiskey on a Sunday is an "in-the-pocket" experience with the candid and charismatic Flogging Molly family. Bound by intense passion, unwavering honesty and "some weird juju," the seven members and their associates provide a good look at how things can be done against the grain. Bucking tradition, industry naysayers and inflexible business models, front man Dave King and crew illustrate their own formula for success: believing in oneself, refusing to be pigeonholed, and rising from humble beginnings to fulfill a dream, set to the driving folk beat of their vibrant live performances.

A Guinness soaked, adrenaline pumped, follow your heart and your dream will come true, making of the band
27 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An awe inspiring look at a band who in themselves became their own genre, Flogging Molly. From their humble beginnings to their sold out amphitheaters, Whiskey on a Sunday examines in detail the rise of "the greatest band in the world" (not to be confused with the greatest band on earth..Tenacious D) by looking at its individual musicians lives up to and in the band. A very inspirational movie for not just those wanting to get into music, but for anybody that has a dream. Not only does the documentary examine the what impact the band has on its members, but how its members impact the music itself, and how that in turn effects the fans. Not to be thrown to the side as another self-glorifying spectacle that would only entertain the hardcore of fans, but anybody at any age that has ever been told they wouldn't make it. Although the film is a little grainy at times and is obviously not top quality picture, the story couldn't be better written in Hollywood thus enforcing the underlying message in the film, that although things may not conform to monotonous music industry standards, with heart and confidence anything can be accomplished.
