'Drummer Charlie Flagg (Matthew Hennessey), a gregarious nonstop talker, forms a rock band in North Carolina with singer and songwriter Tony Ridge (Lee Holmes) who's just been fired from his job. Only problem is that Tony's so shy, he hides in a closet while trying out his songs. They add two other members to the band which takes the name "Circus Monkey": Wynn Knopp (Kevin Corrigan), a perpetually stoned guitarist, and Eric Elwood (Steve Parlavecchio), a bass player who's got a loan shark on his case.
Writer and director John Schultz has fashioned a funny and rollickingly good movie about the challenges of keeping a band together on the road.' Spirituality and Practice
As a comic look at a new band on the road and on the run, Schultz's debut film is a bittersweet tale
