Music Without AGig tells the story of a kid who grows up refusing to let his christian mother and his I-don't-care-one-way-or-the-other father detour him from playing music. After joining the school band, he meets two girls who tell him about Mr. Peaches and his behavior. Based in New Orleans, where there is plenty of good music, he plays the clubs, churches, the French Quarters, and even a few Mardi Gras parades. Whether getting fired, being under paid, or witnessing a shooting, he refusses to give up, persisting in Music Without A Gig.
