Happy Good Friday everyone!
We have so much to be thankful for on this holiday weekend, including more than $14k reasons over on our Kickstarter campaign!
With just 12 days to go we have to raise the final $5k to make sure we get the funding we need to finish our film. Kickstarter’s message to us has always been: “You can always raise more but never less!” meaning if we don’t get to $20k we GET NOTHING.
Why should you back Brass Roots with a pledge? Besides the fact that the film might not get made without your support, there’s also all the rewards we’re offering, from Mardi Gras cups to DVD copies to autographed posters, we’re giving away all kinds of Brass Roots shwag with donations.
Also, backers get exclusive updates with early looks at videos, audio and other media as we finish production of our documentary. Learn more by signing up for our newsletter by clicking the link on the right————————–>
Onto the video (which you would have seen by now if you donated to our Kickstarter or signed up for our newsletter):
Last week we had the pleasure to film Glen David Andrews as he was recording his new single, “Gilded Splinters”, a remix of the Dr. John classic “I walk on gilded splinters”. Glen has played with several brass bands and is a staple in the local music scene and was one of the earliest artist we interviewed about brass bands.
We were delighted to put together this music video, compiling footage of him performing at French Quarter Fest and Tipitina’s, as well as him, his band and New Orleans guitarist Paul Sanchez recording the single in Lowell, Mass. and here in New Orleans at the house of our audio engineer, Michael Seaman.
Also, we should not that the Tipitina’s footage was shot at Glen’s “Trumpets Not Guns” benefit and we encourage everyone to check out the wonderful work they’re doing.
