Danny O’Neill and Hank Taylor are friends and rival trumpeters with ‘O’Neill’s Perennials’, a college band and they’ve managed to prolong their college careers by failing seven years in a row. Ellen Miller catches the eye of both Danny and Hank at a performance – and when she serves them a notice for her boss, a debt collector, the fast-talking guys soon have her working as their manager. Tired of losing gigs to the ‘Perennials’, Artie Shaw ( playing himself) steals the competent Ellen away to be his booking manager. And now the rivals begin to scheme to get themselves into Shaw’s band – each determined to out-play the other! Light musical comedy.
