GET A JOB features 24 original songs. Director Brian Kohne built the movie around the soundtrack. The full feature stars Willie K and Eric Gilliom. They are two friends attempting to find the dignity of employment while bumbling through life and sharing the Aloha Spirit in Hawaii. Funny experiences enhance their journey while they share their special musicality and hilarious charms. They are backed up by world-class entertainers such as Mick Fleetwood, Willie Nelson, Pat Simmons of the Doobie Brothers, Henry Kapono, Carolyn Omine, Kathy Collins and Augie T. Jake Shimabukuro plays a mean ukulele in the tourist scene. Kohne, who has Ohio roots, shows why he is such a creative force by blending the music seamlessly.
