Event Originally produced by Cinema Libre Studio in 1978.
Summary Filmed on the gritty streets of the south side of Chicago, STONY ISLAND tells the story of Richie Bloom (Richie Davis) -- the only white kid on the block -- as he forms an R&B band with his best friend, Kevin (Edward ‘Stoney’ Robinson). With the help of their mentor -- an aging-sax legend, Percy (Gene ‘Daddy G’ Barge) -- they pull together a funky supergroup stealing practice time at night in the local funeral home. Despite few resources and heavy losses, this resilient group of dedicated musicians -- armed only with wit slight-of-hand and outrageous Chicago bravado -- must come together to finally make their smash debut. "Nominated for Best Feature" at the **Chicago International Film Festival**
