year thousands of musicians in search of their Rock & Roll dream
journey to Southern California only to discover that they are lost among
50,000 other musicians struggling to be both seen and heard. The less
than one percent who actually "make it" and sign recording
contracts never see a penny for their efforts.
Anybody Listen, a feature length documentary, shot over a period of
seven years, chronicles the lives of brothers Frank and Vince Rogala and
the members of Orange County's perennial rock band "NC-17".
Humbled by the brutal
realities of the record industry and the corporate business machine, these
courageous musicians are forced to balance their desire for financial success
with their need for artistic redemption. A searing indictment of the
record industry, Won't Anybody Listen pulls no punches as it destroys the
myths about the music business and the Rock & Roll dream.
