Keeping The Blues Alive At Sea II
Client Preview - Promo Films
Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation, Joe Bonamassa, and Sixthman invited us to cover the live performances and behind-the-scenes of round two of this incredible floating music festival. Some of the most celebrated names in Blues collided with the rising stars they've influenced, during 4 days of non-stop tunes from Miami to Cozumel, Mexico. 
 
Quite a feat. With a crew of two, we shot up to four bands simulataneously (some how)... whilst maintaining quality and consistency throughout. The first cut, was edited after the first 16 hour day, and delivered to the client the following morning, before cameras rolled. An absolute pleasure to work on, surrounded by such enormous talent.
Promo 3 - Runtime 4.30
"By the time Joe Bonamassa’s show outside on the pool deck is ready to ignite, the boat really is rocking - the wind has worked itself up into a rage, and as we lurch from side to side like a drunk just trying to make it to a bus stop at the end of the night, the cymbals on stage threaten to take off and throw themselves into the Atlantic in protest. But the show must go on, and, with a backwards baseball cap crammed on his head to stop his hair whipping into his eyes, Bonamassa gives the ecstatic crowd exactly what they’ve been waiting for, embarking on a high energy performance with licks so technically perfectly executed they’re almost a mathematical equation..." - The Blues Magazine, deputy editor Emma Johnson.
Promo 1 - Runtime 2:00
"...The other bands on the bill are out in force to enjoy it too - at one point we spot Beth Hart dancing wildly in the crowd, while sharp suited Vintage Trouble frontman Ty Taylor busts some insanely cool moves by the bar, charming the socks off the many fans who approach him as he makes new friends and snaps selfies and generally acts like a thoroughly excellent human being. Bonamassa’s set is a triumph over weather, and as he peels out a flawless Little Red Rooster, everyone goes reliably bananas, particularly the crowd in the hot tub who’ve jumped in fully clothed to demonstrate their appreciation. And as he ties up his first show of the week and welcomes us to his floating festival and temporary home, his fellow mariners head off into the depths of the ship to discover more bands tucked away in all corners of the Norwegian Pearl, ready to keep the good times rolling all night." - The Blues Magazine, deputy editor Emma Johnson.
