The Beautiful Stringed Sounds of Mando Mucho

Reelife Productions had the pleasure of recording the latest performance of Mando Mucho at the Blue House Cafe in Haydenville, MA. 

This is the 2nd show recorded for a benefit CD that is being produced as a collaboration with the Blue House Cafe Music Series. A compilation CD is being produced as a benefit to the Western MA Libraries (who are desperately fighting budget cuts coming from Beacon Hill.)

My Cinematic Heros at the Coolidge Corner Theater

Very lucky to have had the opportunity to attend this show...

The video below is little ditty I edited together to summarize a remarkable night at the Coolidge Corner Theater (Brookline, MA, USA) that include Jonathan Demme, Robyn Hitchcock, Declan Quinn, Neil Young... all on the same stage (well, sort of)

all as a tribute to another of my cinematic heros: LA Johnson

Attention NEIL YOUNG TRUNK SHOW ticketholders: bring your video cameras to the screening! Robyn Hitchcock will be performing live before the show, and Jonathan Demme will give the audience a mini-master class on how to shoot a performance film!

This evening highlights Jonathan Demme's gift for directing extraordinary performance films. A generous and creative collaborator, he continues to share his enthusiasm for his favorite artists by bringing us into the performance in an original way.
