Mockumentary captures the reunion of 1960s folk trio the Folksmen as they prepare for a show at The Town Hall to memorialize a recently deceased concert promoter.
The New Main Street Singers were a parody of the very popular and successful New Christy Minstrels, a multi-member folk band formed in 1961 and whose many former members included Kenny Rogers, Kim Carnes and Barry McGuire.
To paraphrase an old joke... Knock, knock. Who's there? It's the New Main Street Singers!
After Mitch and Mickey are introduced during the concert, there is an overhead distant shot of the stage. Mitch can be seen nodding to the guitarist to his left, and the two begin strumming - but no music is heard. Mickey also begins playing and her lips don't move, but she is heard thanking the audience. It then cuts to a two-shot, and nobody is playing while Mickey continues talking to the audience.
At the end of the film, before the traditional scrolling credits, the screen is filled with all the main actors' names. One at a time, each star's name is highlighted, in alphabetical order. The scrolling credits are in order of appearance.
