Episode 5: Roses and Revolutions

Roses and Revolutions consists of Singer/Songwriter duo Alyssa Coco and Matt Merritt from Rochester, NY. They recently played [music venue] on the Lower East Side, where I’ve shot the last few episodes of Before The Concert. I decided to brave the frigid air with the band and film them performing on the corner of Stanton Street and Allen Street.

They played short renditions of “Home” and “Moving On.” The duo sometimes play with cellists and percussionists as well, which they did that night at [music venue]. While filming the band, during the talking portion of the video, you’ll hear someone scream out something. No idea what the biker is saying but sounds like he’s trying to plug a restaurant. Only in New York, and happens just about every time I film on the street. I would expect nothing less from New Yorkers.

Thanks to Roses and Revolutions (Alyssa and Matt) for staying out in the cold for a few minutes with me. They are from Rochester so they can handle it better than I can. It was a lot of fun despite my legs buckling from the cold! Burrrrrrr.

Be sure to check out their latest album Earth and Everything on iTunes or Amazon.com.

If Vimeo isn’t your thing, you can watch the video on YouTube as well.

Filming 3 bands/musicians this week in New York City & Hoboken

Ever since I filmed Nick Gill in January, things have been busy in terms of the website which is great and a little surprising! Who would have thought musicians wanted to perform in the freezing cold? I’ve filmed Gerry Perlinski of Lost Romance last week, which was a lot of fun and very cold. Over time, I’m going to have an entire reel of bands & musicians saying it’s cold haha.
