  • Setting

    A Midlands Hotel

  • Synopsis

    The Castlecomer Jukebox are a band with links back to the showband era, and now are on their last legs. They are reduced to a summer stint at a midlands hotel. This, however, is going to be no ordinary summer – the President of the United States of America is coming to stay and the Castlecomer Jukebox are top of the bill. The band can relive some of their former glory and find a new lease of life with the cameras of the world looking on. There is of course a price to pay – a price that questions their loyalty and their very reasons for being a band.
