"A look at a small but influential musical movement in New Jersey's "Mile Square City". Famous for its favorite son Frank Sinatra, this documentary by a local NYC TV station focuses on the bands that made Hoboken famous for its music and clubs in the 1980s.

Featuring a look at The Chris Stamey Group, Cries, The Cucumbers, The Bongos, Gut Bank, The Feelies, and Gene "The Singing Plumber" Turonis, this documentary is a really nice step back in time. If you were there or have even heard of any of these bands, this is a great way to get reacquainted."

Appearances include Joe Piscopo, Southside Johnny Lyon and Little Steven Van Zandt, as well as Steve Fallon (Maxwell's owner) and Glen Morrow (member of The Individuals, and co-founder of Bar/None Records).
