Women’s History Month @ First Friday Live

19 Mar

The dream team is at it again.  Ben Clayton (with additional camera support from Bret Hoy) and I, put our expertise together once again for the folks at the Gillioz Theatre to produce and document the March edition of First Friday Live.  Featuring three Springfield based, X-chromosome-centric musical acts, The Eskimo Girls, Black Bonnet Ballyhoo and Lilly Bee & The Pollinators, the show was sponsored by Missouri State University in honor of Women’s History Month.

This morning I received the highlight video and couldn’t resist sharing.

The Bootheel @ First Friday Live

26 Feb

For the next installment of my continuing blog series, “live concert videos I recorded and mixed for (working title),” I present to you The Bootheel performing their song “Northsider” at the January edition Gillioz Theatre’s First Friday Live.

Shot by Peter Jodlowski and Ben Clayton, edited by Ben and audio recorded/mixed by yours truly.   Working with Ben, Peter and the Gilly staff on concert series has been a blast and I feel the project as a whole has really matured into something special.  Originally only four shows were planned, but thanks to community and artist support, the Gilly has decided to continue the series. Friday, March 1st, kicks off round two of First Friday Live.  If you’re in the SGF area, come on down and enjoy this free for 21+ event, or if you’re just checking in via the interwebz, stay tuned to the Gillioz Theatre YouTube channel for more event coverage.

Shameless self-promotion alert: Ben and I are looking to take this show on the road, so to speak. We are currently accepting inquiries from parties interested in producing such videos for their events.  Whether  you’re a band, venue, promoter, or anyone looking for professional live production media coverage, please contact us.
