Teenager Will Burton (Gaelan Connell) lives in his head, and his head is filled with music. When his mom Karen Burton (Lisa Kudrow) gets a new job in New Jersey, Will starts his junior year at a new school only to find the old cliques still apply, but rock-n-roll rules the scene. Perpetually a misfit, Will strikes up a friendship with like-minded outsider Sa5m "the 5 is silent" (Vanessa Hudgens). They are both surprised when the school's "it" girl, Charlotte (Aly Michalka) recruits Will to help assemble a band to compete in "Bandslam," a battle of the bands that is "Texas High School Football BIG." Charlotte's ex-boyfriend Ben Wheatly (Scott Porter) is poised to win with his band Glory Dogs - Springsteen wannabes down to their hats. For the first time in his life, Will finds he is uniquely suited to not only participate in something, but to truly make a difference. With music as the great equalizer, WILL is a movie that proves love, friendship, and music can all rock your world.

«If you loved 'school of rock', you'll love 'Bandslam'. Entertaining and fun, plus full of great music.»
- Kelli Gillespie, XETV CW6

«Everyone can relate to this movie. 'Bandslam' is the rare teenage movie that is smart and real. This movie rocks!»
- Kevin Steincross, FOX-TV
