The newly "Re-Souled" Plimsouls is a resurgence of the 1980s California rock band, but with a new look. Original Plimsouls guitarist Eddie Munoz teams up with random cool friends to bring the classic sounds of The Plimsouls to the stage, songs like "A Million Miles Away", "Oldest Story In The World", "Now," plus songs from the Valley Girl soundtrack.
