I have a bunch of bands that play regularly for dances in New York City and the surrounding areas. Mostly these dances are not documented and though amazing music and dancing happens on an ongoing basis, it's a nitch activity that garners no media attention. That's fine with me... but a few years back I handed my cell phone to some guy on the sidelines saying, "take a video of us, OK?" He really captured the whole experience with this video of my band Hog Wild playing for the New York Mardi Gras dance in 2014. Check it out!
It's worth a look!
