Tuesday, September 18th, 2012"Friday Night Blues Party" DVD!!!!
We're filming a series of live Chicago Blues shows to make into a DVD. Raw, intense, down home, real deal Blues with All-Star artists. This film will capture the intensity, excitement, and raw energy of the live Blues experience in a small club environment. Complete with extensive interviews with the artists themselves as well as full length song performances, this is a chance for these Blues artists to tell their story, in their own words, of their experiences over many decades of playing & living the Blues, as well the life & music lessons they learned from touring with some of the greatest musicians of all time.
Professionally shot by Andrew LaValley (Mad Toast Live & Bear Sound) and directed by A.J. Love, this DVD will feature some of the greatest Chicago Blues musicians alive today, many of whom have never appeared before on a commercially available DVD (despite their vast accomplishments) . This DVD will be recorded live at the Knuckle Down Saloon in Madison, WI in November & December of 2012, over various Friday night performances.
It is expensive to film, edit, and produce a DVD, and by Pre-Ordering the DVD and/or sponsoring the film, you will help us make this incredible project happen! This is a film that needs to be made NOW, while these great artists are alive and in their prime.
