March to the beat of your own drum. Even if you don't have one.



ADVENTURES OF POWER is an epic comedy about a mine-worker named Power whose love of drums and lack of musical skill has turned him into the ridiculed "air drummer" of his small town. But when Power's union-leader father calls a strike at the mine, Power discovers an underground subculture of air-drummers who just might hold the key to changing the world. Power's journey across America brings him face-to-face with his town's greatest enemy, and allows him to discover the beat within his own heart.



Starring Ari Gold, Michael McKean, Jane Lynch, and Adrian Grenier, the film premiered to widespread acclaim at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival and features classic songs by Rush, Judas Priest, Phil Collins, Dazz Band, Loverboy, Bow Wow Wow, Woodie Guthrie and original songs by Ethan Gold.



"ADVENTURES OF POWER is a crazy, hilarious, bizarre, insane movie.
And all in the best ways possible."

~Ain't It Cool



"Rowdy response to POWER's midnight unspooling at Sundance
establishes the pic's cult-movie cred... Gold's a gifted comedian."
