“Riot on the Dance Floor”

Tweetable Logline:

“Riot on the Dancefloor” is a feature-length documentary about a mailman’s infamous punk club in one of New Jersey’s worst ghettos.

Elevator Pitch:

What does it take to turn a lifeless, concrete bunker into a legendary club that hosted some of the biggest bands? What does it take to forge a thriving, vital scene in a downtrodden, dangerous city like Trenton, New Jersey, with nothing but flyers, postcards and pre-internet word-of-mouth? It takes passion and a dedication to the independent spirit that drove the underground music scene. It requires the ear of someone attuned to diversity and a set of balls big enough to book the envelope-pushing bands that most promoters wouldn’t touch. That man was Randy Now, and this is his story.

Production Team:

Our Team:

Director: Steve Tozzi
Photography: Ken Salerno
Producers: Amy Wuelfing, Steven DiLodovico, Peter Tabbot

About the Production:

It is the story of how hoards of misfit kids found an unlikely home and the inspiration to go out and challenge the world around them. It’s a universal tale of violence and unity; of champions and underdogs and, above all, the freedom and liberation of complete creative control.

Current Status:

The film is currently in production, fund-raising.
