"The Boomers" is the truer-than-fiction story of one band - five young men from the Northeast and the memorable characters who shared their journey towards the top in the late 1970s. They played alongside legends. Emblematic of their generation- The Baby Boomers- they helped define their times through the shared experiences of millions in pop music.
"The Boomers" - often graphic and tense, often funny and human, is filled with recollections and stories of hope, triumph and tragedy. Facing their mid-life crisis' thirty years later, three "survivors" of the 70s music scene decide to reunite, and write music about their lives. In doing so, they are unprepared for what they encounter: decades-long angst and resentments that haunt their relationships- and their music. This, alongside unresolved tragedies they faced, and differing views of their past and its failures, they are forced to consider the meaning in life's great disappointments
Their reconciliations bring about a renewal- not only of their relationships, but at the unexpected and untimely death of a bandmate, the realization of the brevity of life and the finality it holds.
"The Boomers" is a must-read for everyone that lived through history's greatest popular culture revolution, and the times that bind.

"Perhaps it's time to once again visit the garages, the local clubs, and the musical artifacts an entire generation has left behind", states Macari from his childhood home in Connecticut. "As the Baby Boomers - the largest generation in history- move into our twilight years, we seek once again to relive, to remember, to celebrate the times that bind", he adds.
