LET ME SEE THEM HANDS!!!

29 11 2010

This past summer Joe, Nick & Luke flanked future roots reggae icons John Brown’s Body during their appearance at the 20th Annual Grassroots Festival of Music & Dance. The Moving Box team was on hand to capture an amazing performance from the locally founded octet.

Their set contained many musical and visual high points. While reviewing the footage of their performance, Luke chose to showcase their performance of “The Gold (Dubmatix Version)“. During the editing process, Luke felt the song deeply resonated with him. The crowd response was absolutely electric and the visual evolution of the light and camera angles created a flow that was sensually stimulating from beginning to end.

While editing the performance, Luke worked with local music legends Phil Abbott and Dan Timmons at Pyramid Sound Studios. They contributed a mixed and mastered recording made the music and sound of the event come alive.

So load up the 720p HD footage, get comfy, strap on your ear goggles and be transported to a lovely summer night, a beautiful crowd, and a unique band!
