We met the lovely Yanaysa and Maygred from Jade on New Years eve in Havana. After the beautiful dinner they prepared for us in their apartment they preformed a few songs. They were AMAZING so we asked them to perform a few songs for us on the streets around Havana. This is the first of 3. Hope you like it.
I met Adam Page enjoying the art, the wine and the 50s records at Esther Daisy's exhibition in Thistle Hall Gallery a couple of weeks back. Being a man that embodies both the tinder and the spark it wasn't long before we were sinking beers like old pals. Adam told me he could do more with a beer bottle than most and that people paid to go see his 'special talent'. Not really sure what I was getting myself into I offered to film his show...
I went to Queenstown in the South West of New Zealand a couple of weeks to go to cover the Queenstown Winter Festival. The festival marks the beginning of the ski season. The festival is a lot of fun. The festival is not driven by musical talent. Therefore it was an absolute treat to see this young band called Your Grandma playing on stage at the mardi gras event. We decided to shoot a little movie together.
We ran into a lot of sound problems. One solution entailed me and Liza Devine (the singer and bass player's mum) raiding the local school's music room to get mics and cables. We shot the video in Liza and Peter's(the dad) house.
Your Grandma are:
Molly Devine - Vocals
Dahn Kim - Piano
Jack Devine - Bass
Russell Stirling - Sax
Timmy Doyle - Drums
