Meet The Spongetones! is a short documentary produced in April 2011 by Olivia Frain (aka Homonym Girl).
Olivia followed the band to the famous green room at the Double Door Inn in Charlotte, NC, seeking to answer the question of how a Beatle band from 1979 remained together 32 years later. Jamie Hoover and Steve Stoeckel talk about the band's beginnings, what they were attempting to do, and who their influences were. The documentary includes early and later concert footage.
Most bands never make it to 25 years, but The Spongetones did. In honor of the anniversary, the band wives got together in 2004 and made this tribute video as a surprise for the band. The video features photos through the years, accompanied by some of their music of the time.
