About The Cadillac Tramps: Life On the Edge

The 1990's were the "Golden Age" of the Orange County California music scene. Bands like The Offspring, No Doubt, Sugar Ray and Social Distortion were blowing up the maintream and selling millions of records around the world. Meanwhile, the undisputed king's of that scene, The Cadillac Tramps, were falling apart. ​ Infighting, addiction, frustration and dysfunction would tear the band apart at the peak of their success, but their bond would prove too strong to remain broken for long. ​ The Cadillac Tramps: Life On The Edge is a humble, honest and entertaining look at how five young men who found each other in sobriety, created a lasting musical legacy that influenced Indie Rocks biggest bands and overcame the past to support lead singer Michael "Gabby" Gaborno as he fights for his life from the ravages of Hep-C. First time filmmaker, Jamie Sims Coakley, expertly weaves a colorful combination of archival footage, insightful artist interviews and intimate verite footage together into an arresting, heartwarming and cautionary tale of brotherhood, reflection and the power of music to heal and unite us. ​
