The Farmers and the Funk

Seth Wereska check audio levels before shooting an interview with tap dancer Lee Payne.Geoff Briggs and Seth Wereska trekked on up to the painfully bucolic town of Dublin, NH to video tape a loft (barn?) party played by the newly formed Groove Heroes. The project is anchored by Vinx, a master percussionist and long time friend of Productive Media. The band rounds out their sound with an amazing German jazz drummer, a young New York hip-hop vocalist, a German cellist who doubles on electric bass, and a tap dancer. Yes.  Tap dancer.  From London. It's very cool.

Productive Media got involved to help boot strap GH's promotional Seth Wereska, Vinx, Geoff Briggsmaterial for an upcoming European tour. It turns out that with a lineup like that, a person really needs to see and hear the music to start to understand it. We lit Vinx's performance space and ran a three camera shoot of their first-ever live performance while also conducting up some quick interviews with the band. We're looking forward to turning out a unique electronic press kit for their label Dreamsicle, and maybe catching a show some time when we aren't glued to a viewfinder. (It's tough to nod your head to the music when there's a camera in the way)
