Overview

The year was 1979 and The Synchronistics were big. Big enough to be on Johnny Carson. Their hit single “Better Together” rose to number two on the Billboard charts. But something terrible happened that drove the group apart. And now, twenty years later, they’re back together in Maple Valley, their hometown, to perform at the 1999 WKLN public access TV telethon. Will they overcome their differences from twenty years ago, act professionally, and help save WKLN from going under? Probably not. But you never know what to expect when this dysfunctional group gets together…one last time. It’s Mamma Mia meets Spinal Tap! Featuring sixteen original songs, including “The Funk Train” and “Bump Your Booty Rump.”
