Vertuoso continues its partnership with ClixTV by distributing a documentary from director Peter Ventrella, One Step Back: The Rock & Roll Odyssey of Splooge.
Vertuoso Co-Founder Curt Doty says, “ClixTV continues to innovate around a new streaming experience and we are glad they picked up this film. This compelling and well-crafted documentary deserves to find its audience and expand the reach of the bands’ music and further share their journey.”
From director Peter Ventrella comes the documentary, One Step Back: The Rock & Roll Odyssey of Splooge, a rollicking adventure, full of heart, humor and unforgettable characters, this true story is a testament to the power of music and evidence that a dream can sometimes be realized in the most unexpected of ways. Members of the New Jersey rock band Splooge have spent 20 years creating original music in anticipation of their big breakthrough. But as they approach their 40th birthdays, they are still stuck playing bars and block parties. It looks as if their dream has hit a dead end. That is, until a concert promoter hears their latest songs and offers them a chance to go on a cross-country tour of Ireland. Is this the opportunity they’ve been waiting for or will they continue to remain one step back of that elusive brass ring?
Peter Ventrella of Rolling Thunder Productions adds, “The four working class band members of Splooge have lived in relative obscurity for 30 years and now, through this partnership with Vertuoso and the opportunities presented to show the story on ClixTV, Splooge will finally have their moment in the sun. I’m excited to partner with a ground breaking digital platform like ClixTV where the world will hear their music, meet the musicians and experience their unlikely and offbeat adventures.”
ClixTV’s CEO Ed Sullivan says, for anyone who has ever dreamed of the faint possibility of rock and roll stardom One Step Back, the story of Splooge is an emotional roller-coaster documentary series now showing on the ClixTV free video platform.
