“Yesterday was a memory, of might have been, But Rock and Roll never forgets, forgives or regrets, Nothing comes easy, try to get it all together now!”
Attempting to close the generation gap, popular Aussie sitcom All Together Now ran for four successful seasons, playing out 101 madcap episodes of nostalgic rock’n’roll fuelled family comedy from 1991 - 1993.
Back in 1972, Bobby Rivers (Logie winner Jon English, Against The Wind) and his rock band Still Waters were at the top of the pop charts with "Easy Street", a catchy if not prophetic tune that defined an era of carefree living.
Fast forward to 1990, caught in a time-warp – Bobby is wistfully reminiscent of a time when long hair, love beads, incense, peace and harmony were part of the zeitgeist. Discovering he is the father of 15 year-old twins Anna (Jane Hall, Neighbours) and Thomas (Steve Jacobs), it’s hard to know who will have the hardest time adjusting to the new family and Bobby will need all the help he can get from long time friends Tracy Lawson (Logie and AFI Award winner Rebecca Gibney, Packed To The Rafters), Wayne Lovett (Bruno Lucia) and Doug Stevens (Garry Who). Series guest stars include: Lynda Stoner, Nadine Garner, John Wood, Tina Arena and John Waters.
Featuring 21 side-splitting episodes recorded in front of a live studio audience, presented on four discs including a compilation of hilarious out-takes, All Together Now - Series One is packed with fun music references, turmoil on the home front and good old fashioned family pathos as Bobby comes to terms with his daughter dating a musician, his son hiring an actor to play dad for parent-teacher interviews and the overwhelming unfamiliar responsibilities of being a rock'n'roll father.
