"[A]n offbeat indie film about a couple of guys trying to make it in an R&B band in Chicago."
This independent project was originally released as MY MAIN MAN FROM STONY ISLAND. Filmed in Chicago, the story involves a group of multiracial rhythm-and-blues performers, and how they're affected by the death of veteran blues musician (Gene Barge). As a bonus, the films takes excellent photographic advantage of the Windy City. STONY ISLAND proved an auspicious directorial debut for cinematographer Andrew Davis, who went back behind cameras for a series of action films, then returned to directing for another brilliant Chicago-based opus, THE FUGITIVE.
