SUNSHINE REBELS is a documentary about The Central Park Scene in the 1970s and the peopele involved who became known as the Parkies” who where involved in graffiti, skating, music and freestyle frisbee.
Wild Style graffiti was born at the Bandshell with legendary graffiti clubs The Rolling Thunder Writers, Soul Artists and The Rebels. Members of the original ZOO YORK (“Dogtown East”) skateboard team were Parkies. Bandshell musicians tried and tested new, emerging music, and many went on to play with celebrated bands such as the B52s, Stray Cats, Tito Puente and others. Billy Squire also came out of the Bandshell. And three members of the Parkie clan were world-champion freestyle Frisbee players, people like Kerry Kollmar, who changed the sport forever when he invented the “nail-delay” and “tapping”.
