Somewhere in the midwest in the 1950’s, Chad, a hip-swiveling, guitar-playing young man is being released from prison. The warden doesn’t appreciate a guy like Chad ridin’ into town, playin’ his music and excitin’ the local women. In a nearby dreary little town, Natalie, a young mechanic, is dreaming of love and adventure. She yearns for one true love to take her away, but she doesn’t realize that her best friend Dennis has a secret crush on her. Sitting in Sylvia’s, the local honky tonk, the whole town sings the blues. Natalie’s widowed father Jim enters and joins in, until they’re interrupted by the roar of a motorcycle: it is Chad, riding into town. Chad is in need of a mechanic and he’s introduced to Natalie, who is instantly smitten and promises to fix his bike. Chad asks about any excitement in town, but he’s told that excitement is outlawed under the Mayor’s strict rules: no loud music, no indecent behavior. Chad, incensed, promises to breathe some life into this sad, little town and he touches a broken-down jukebox, and it immediately comes to life.
