Storyline

JoJo, a Filipino-American, poseur gangsta-pimp, thinks he hears his call to the streets and carjacks Vance, a mysterious traveling perfume salesman who fancies cowboy hats. In tow is Devaun, JoJo's best friend, who tries desperately to protect Vance from JoJo, and JoJo from the law. But no one is safe from JoJo's impulses, as the motley trio hits the road to Nashville, and slowly succumb to an escapist adventure that takes them further away from JoJo's reality, but closer to Vance's reality. When JoJo discovers the truth about his reluctant road companion, the trip takes a turn that leads the three of them to truth, love, and the dirty underbelly of the Nashville country music scene. Written by Steve Mallorca

Making the BIG TIME!
9 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

I would like to know how to update my photo and biography for this site. Also correct the spelling of my name. Although working on "Slow Jam King" was a terrific experience. All of the actors were very pleasant and easy to get along with. Steve is a wonderful director who is laid back and knows what he wants. This is a quality which is very admirable and produces great results in actors. Steve makes you feel comfortable on set and makes delivery easy and stress free. Seeing myself on the big screen was even more exciting. But most of all hearing all the wonderful enthusiastic comments of my friends and even a stranger who recognized me from the film was very rewarding. Many of my associates thought "Slow Jam King" was a very tasteful and funny journey. Thanks to you all, Ranardo. Although I would like to see my name spelled correctly one this site and in the credits, which is "Ranardo-Domeico Grays" and not any thing different...maybe one day! I hope Steve hires me for his next film **wink**
