Almost Almost Famous is a rockin’ and rollin’, wild musical ride following the stories of Texas rockabilly musician Lance Lipinsky as Jerry Lee Lewis, Las Vegas-based R & B singer Bobby Brooks as Jackie Wilson and the “Elvis from Orlando”, Ted Torres.
From the beer joints of Texas to the Karaoke bars of Honolulu, we come to understand how these incredibly talented singers became some of the world’s top tribute artists. But what happens when borrowed fame begins to lose its charm?
Bobby Brooks' life is turned upside down after Jackie Wilson’s family come to a performance and DNA tests reveal some jaw dropping, against-all-odds news. Ted’s career on the nostalgia circuit reached the top when he won best Elvis in 2017, but he can’t be “Young Elvis” forever. Lance played Jerry Lee in the HBO series “Vinyl” and for 6 years on stage in "Million Dollar Quartet” but can he find fame on his own?
Then there’s Marty Kramer, one-time road manager to rock music’s biggest stars. Marty struggles to keep their feet on the ground, the music centre stage, and the crowds clamouring for more on the “Class of 59” cross country road tour.
Smart, funny and full of heart, this high-end, feature-length documentary takes you on a musical ride. But after years on the road, borrowed fame is beginning to lose its charm. Who will break through and who will break down? Can any of them find stardom on their own terms, or will they always be Almost Almost Famous?
