Description: Once upon a time, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who loved to sing. They all met in high school, and discovering that they shared an affection for music and entertaining, they dreamed of becoming like their idols-the Four Aces, the Four Lads, the Four Freshmen, the Hi-los and the Crew Cuts. They rehearsed in the basement of Smudge's family's plumbing supply company. It was here they became Forever Plaid. Although rock 'n' roll was quickly overtaking the sounds of the '40s and '50s, the Plaids believed in their music. They sang at family gatherings and fund-raisers and eventually graduated to supermarket openings and proms. Then, finally, they landed their first big gig at the Airport Hilton cocktail bar-the Fusel Lounge. But, while they were driving in their cherry-red 1954 Mercury convertible and rehearsing their big finale, they were slammed broadside by a school bus filled with eager Catholic teens. The teens miraculously escaped injury, but the members of Forever Plaid were killed instantly. Then, some 40 years later, through the power of Harmony and the Expanding Holes in the Ozone Layer, in conjunction with the positions of the planets and all the other astro-technical stuff, they are allowed to come back to perform the show they never got to do in life.
