Boojie Baker (Dan Conway) is a ruthless and greedy talent manager who "discovers" and then exploits unknown rock bands. His newest find is a band he renames The Big Blast. Most notable in Blast-Off Girls is a cameo appearance from real-life KFC founder Colonel Harland Sanders. Lewis was able to enlist Sanders for the film through his connections in his advertising firm. The scene was shot in a single day at the local Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in Wilmette, Illinois. Lewis recalled Sanders as being very difficult to work with for Sanders made a number of self-serving demands which included requesting multiple rehearsals, top-billing for the film, and wanting to direct the scene himself.
