From the cover: Sons of Provo is a hilarious behind-the-scenes "mockumentary" of the greatest LDS boy band that never really was! Will Swenson (The Singles Ward), Kirby Heyborne (The Best Two Years) and Danny Tarasevich are the fictional Everclean, a semi-talented pop group destined for worldwide fame (but they'd settle for the state of Utah...and possibly Idaho). These squeaky-clean Momma's-Backstreet-Boys are touring across the state, bringing their righteous dance grooves to the Mormon masses. Will their newfound popularity take them to higher levels of awesomeness, or will it tear them apart like cheap acid-free scrapbooking paper?
Brothers Will and Danny need a new member to fill their trio, and they find the hopeful and naive Kirby, a scrapbook store clerk, to fill the bill. They progress through a series of dismal performances at ward parties, firesides, and weddings until they record an album, learn to dance, and find moderate success, apparently with young teenaged girls. The conflict comes from Will's domineering egoism, and in the climax he must learn to share the spotlight with Kirby and Danny.
