Lee Fields at the Fir
Featuring footage Christian Anderson and I shot for a filmmakers’ series called Hand Shakes, here’s a backstage/ onstage pass to a Lee Fields show we attended in Portland. Truth be told, we weren’t prepared for the type of access we were given by the band (Lee and his Expressions) but we made the best of it. The result, hopefully, conveys the type of excitement and all-out energy you can expect from any given Lee Fields outing. Lee Fields and the Expressions – Live at Doug Fir from Hand Shakes on Vimeo.

Party’s Over.
OK, so that title might be a little melodramatic in connection with the recent news that Prussia has decided to call it quits. These guys aren’t dying or anything. Their band is breaking up and they’re working on new projects – cool stuff from what I’ve heard so far. However, let’s admit that for those of us who had the pleasure to watch this band progress over the last 4(?) years, it’s hard not to be a little sad. Partially, this is because if you ever got the chance to see them play you’d know that it felt like...

Our birthday celebration continues
Another bonus video for your digestion… OHTIS was one of those bands that suckerpunched me and most of my friends when we first heard them.

We had to make exceptions. If you know anything about the band and what Sam Swinson often sung about, you’ll realize why we filmed this in an abandoned church. I had “visited” the church a couple days prior to us filming and,...

Happy Birthday to us
Today we turn 3 years old! To celebrate, for the next few days we’ll be releasing a few outtake videos (one per day) that for one reason or another never saw light. It just seems appropriate to start off with the very first shoot we ever embarked on. Hard to believe but it was three years ago today that we convinced Charlene Kaye and bandmate Taryn Wood to follow us into the abandoned Lee Plaza Hotel for what would become the first installment in the Single Barrel Detroit series. We were always very fond of this particular video, but...

Dennis Coffey onstage with Mayer Hawthorne
A while back we filmed legendary Motown Funk Brother Dennis Coffey onstage with Mayer Hawthorne at the Majestic Theatre. Thanks to STRUT and !K7 Records for putting this together. We hope you enjoy! (onstage footage shot by Erin Cosens and Mike Berlucchi) Look for Mr. Coffey’s new album, featuring a collection of great artists including Detroit’s own Mayer Hawthorne, Mick Collins (Dirtbombs) and Rachel Nagy (Detroit Cobras), dropping April 26 on STRUT.
