On Friday July 29 I had the honor of following around one of my favvvorite bands VALENCIA to make a tour-documentary-live-music video (that really rolls off the tongue, doesn't it??). They are the most delightful guys ---by this I mean that I never stop smiling in their presence... too many good vibes--- and play some of the best music I've heard in all my life.
As cliched as it will sound: getting to spend quality time with Valencia is proof that hard work pays off and dreams really do come true. I had so much fun getting to know the guys better and joining them on stage for my exclusive video & photography. OH HAPPY DAY!
I am working hard to produce my video (it's for their song "The Way" and is coming along very well :D), but decided to take a few hours away from the cutting room to edit some of the many, many pictures I took while hanging out with the band. Click into this album to both see and read all about the fun times I had with Shane, Brendan, George, Dan, and their new guitar player Trevor!!
Once you've looked through these pictures, read my concert report for the Do America Tour. Then go watch Valencia's brand new music video for their incredible song "Still Need You Around."
Hanging Out With Valencia
Another shot with Brendan's wide angle lens! He and Mike of Anarbor were trying to upload some new software for part of the night. It was extreeemely entertaining when the upload failed.
