Greatest Lost Band of the 1960s_
EXT. EVENING. POLY HIGH SCHOOL GYM
The van pulls up next to a similar woodie at the side of the gymnasium.
Kids are milling about, heading to the dance inside.
INT. HIGH SCHOOL GYMNASIUM.
Decorated with banner, streamers, etc. Kids are dancing stiffly to some
tame rocknroll twist music (several years out of date) as
Treadway & Company carry in their gear.
Rod Piazza and the Mystics are setting up. Rick goes over and greets Rod
Hey Rod, this is Steve Whiting, our new bass player.
Steve and Rod shake hands
Cool man! Im Rod!
Yeah, man! Rock n Roll!!
Rod is obviously impressed, figuring they must be getting serious with
this new older guy in the band.
So you still going out as Treadway & Company?
Yeah, I guess so!
Youre not playing surf music any more. You gotta get yourself
a cooler name, Rick!
(reading the Mystics bass drum)
The Mystics. Now thats a cool name!
INT. BAND ON STAGE
The Mystics are on stage playing MYSTIC EYES. Rod looks good
and plays a mean harmonica. We also see Bob Sandell on the guitar
INT. RICK & BAND WATCHING
Most of the crowd are disinterested but Treadway & Company are all
up close to the stage digging the music.
These guys are pretty good!
Yeah, cool guys too. But were better!

INT. RICK & BAND ON STAGE
SFX CUE: She Got Me II by The Misunderstood
The scene is much like before: the crowd are mostly disinterested but
now the Mystics are watching closely.
INT. ROD & MYSTICS WATCHING
These guys are pretty good. Check the original song, Rod!
Yeah, but were better!
And they gotta do something about that name!
On stage Treadway & Company are enjoying performing for their friends
in the Mystics and the few other people who are into it.
