Local filmmaker Randy Frykas Follows High Five Drive as they crisscross Europe!

hen it comes to bands on tour most people think huge buses, sold out arenas and partying but independent touring is a whole different world.  Sleeping on floors, days without showering, broken down vans and sinking more and more in debt are common occurrences for this kind of touring.  "The Ones Who Make It Through" from filmmaker Randy Frykas (Call To Arms: The Story of the Royal Albert) documents what it takes to be an independent band on tour on the other side of the world.

Winnipeg band High Five Drive is about to embark on their fourth European tour all on their own dime.  After losing over $30,000 on their first three tours, their version of success is breaking even - or at least coming close.  To help realize this goal they have booked 32 shows in 34 days in ten countries all over Europe.

You can check out a trailer for this great looking homegrown documentary here!
