This project was a collaboration of local musicians trying to make some music together during the COVID-19 pandemic. In mid-March of 2020, the local live music scene was effectively shut down. Some of us were determined not to let it stop us from creating and collaborating. The musicians in this video filmed their individual parts at home in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Files were then exchanged over the internet.
The musicians were—Andy Hamburger (drums), Brian Derek (bass/vocals), Casey Cleveland (vocals), David Gorozdos (piano/vocals), Deanna Dove (vocals/guitar), Ed Crowley (harmonica), Eva Bowie (vocals), Greg Meyer (saxophone), Jeff Dow (guitar/vocals), Jeff Shoop (percussion), Jill Fulton (vocals), John Eggers (guitar/vocals), John Vengrouskie (guitar), Lois McDuffee (vocals), Laurie Matlock (vocals/guitar), Michael Feldman (guitar/vocals), Nancy Joie Wilkie (guitar), Scott Matlock (vocals/violin), Tom McDuffee (vocals/bass), and Vadim Levy (keyboard).
Music and lyrics by Chet Powers. The video was produced by David Gorozdos at Cabbage Run Studio. No instruments were harmed during the making of this video.
