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.
All of the songs were written by Eugene Levy, Christopher Guest and other actors in the cast who also played all their own instruments.
We don't want people to reach for their remotes here.
Mark Shubb: It's public television.
Alan Barrows: They don't have remotes.
When Mitch and Mickey are introducing their song at Town Hall, Mitch's hand is making a "C" chord. In the next shot with just Mickey's head and Mitch's guitar in the background, it has no hand on it. When the shot returns to Mitch and Mickey together, he is still making a "C" chord.
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.
