Pete Jones, lead singer of the seminal punk band AMMO PALACE, is stuck. He's solo (in his professional and private life) and he can't finish his long-promised, still gestating album. His one-time partner, now-out-on-her-own indie producer Laura Klein, approaches Pete to appear on a segment of a syndicated radio show. Laura's pitch is simple: from the Classifieds and Craigslist, she and Pete will find a group of musicians who have never met and create, for one day and one day only, a band.
The musicians are assembled. It's a vibrant cross section of talent: an eccentric, elderly Theremin player, a muse-worthy but abused punk rock bassist, a Christian guitarist who sings like an angel, a butch, hardened, but happy-to-be-here drummer, a former lounge singer turned real estate agent singer, and an almost-past-his-prime electric violinist with anger management issues.
For Laura, this is an opportunity to establish a life out from under Pete's shadow. For Pete, it's a chance to connect and re-mix his personal and creative life. For the unknown band, it's a time to see if they have what it takes to fulfill, or say goodbye to, the unfulfilled dream of making it in the music business. Pleased to Meet Me is a funny, unexpected look into the unrealized dreams and possibilities of artists.
