(MON) The Brian Waite Band: The Land That Rock Forgot
Fast forward to the year 2012: BWB, gone ultra high-tech, is on their way to a gig in Sillycon Valley, when their plane crashes on a remote, tropical island. Their high-tech musical instruments now useless, the band begins a quest to rebuild their sound and make it to their gig. Along the way, they rediscover the beauty of nature and meet other castaways, as well as some bizarre natives like "The Beetles" and Floyd the Pig. Each one teaches the band about their native music and traditional acoustic instruments. Armed with this knowledge, the band creates a new "back-to-earth" sound, which they hope will win the heart of the island's king, who can offer them a way home. But will the band return to their high-tech world now that they have reconnected with Mother Nature? See for yourself in The Brian Waite Band's latest rock 'n roll adventure, THE LAND THAT ROCK FORGOT!
