Back in 1988 the North Sea Jazz festival organized a club tour the week before the festival started. One of the big acts was Walter Wolfman Washington. Supercool nice guy with his great band played at de Zwarte Ruiter ( the Black Horseman)
First time I was this "upclose and personal" with a band, in the middle of the bumping grinding, jumping and singing audience feeling the music. The place was small, the stage was even smaller, packed with people, sweat and drinks it was a night to never forget.
Shot with a Sony M3a on a Miller tripod, recorded on U-matic. The 6800 portable if I'm not mistaken. The H264 was to big so made a smaller WMV. This is not for people looking for exciting footage edited by someone with ADD, this is all about the music baby! :) This is the raw recordings, no editing just straight to vimeo from 20 year old U-matic tapes.
I think the sound was by Frits Erkens and he used just a XY setup but can't remember. Just remember the drum solo and hanging out with the band... groovy times.
The Hague street slang rap by boozy, shot about 15? years ago on a video8 cam just for fun. Edited on my offline U-matic set (type 5 rules! hehe) re-discovered and uploaded for fun. As fas as I can remember this was a really cheap tiny little video8, and it shakes like a madman but the end result is not too bad.
