"Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone" - documentary trailer

EVERYDAY SUNSHINE is a documentary about the band Fishbone, musical pioneers who have been rocking on the margins of pop culture for the past 25 years. From the streets of South-Central Los Angeles and the competitive Hollywood music scene of the 1980's, the band rose to prominence, only to fall apart when on the verge of "making it."

Laurence Fishburne narrates EVERYDAY SUNSHINE, an entertaining cinematic journey into the personal lives of this unique Black rock band, an untold story of fiercely individual artists in their quest to reclaim their musical legacy while debunking the myths of young Black men from urban America. Highlighting the parallel journeys of a band and their city, EVERYDAY SUNSHINE explores the personal and cultural forces that gave rise to California's legendary Black punk sons that continue to defy categories and expectations.

At the heart of the film's story is lead singer Angelo Moore and bassist Norwood Fisher who show how they keep the band rolling, out of pride, desperation and love for their art. To overcome money woes, family strife, and the strain of being aging Punk rockers on the road, Norwood and Angelo are challenged to re-invent themselves in the face of dysfunction and ghosts from a painful past.

Nice coincidence as we have applied to the Charleston International Film Festival, so keep your fingers crossed.

Cool and thanks Karin, as we're excited about wrapping up the film and getting it out there in the world.  Besides shopping the film around to some of the PBS doc series, we're currently traveling the film festival circuit through the Spring and then doing a theatrical this Summer, so we will definitely make it back to LA this Summer.


Anyone interested in the film can join it's fan page here on Facebook page and hopefully we will run into each other when I come to your city.
