    • Synopsis
    • It’s a make-or-break weekend for the
      Honeydripper and its owner Tyrone Purvis.
      Deep in debt, Tyrone announces to his
      sidekick Maceo that he has hired the
      famous guitar player, Guitar Sam,
      for a special one night only gig.
      Just a couple of days before this major
      weekend for the Honeydripper, young
      Sonny arrives in town a rather unusual guitar.
      Looking for work, he asks for Tyrone’s help,
      only to be arrested by local Sheriff Pugh,
      who sends him cotton picking.
      It’s now the morning of the big night,
      and Guitar Sam is nowhere to be found.
      Tyrone will have to use all his wits to
      come up with a new scheme—
      one that will save the club and
      help launch a new musical era.
