Are you in this video? Depends on were you were on May 5 …

If you were at Minglewood Tavern on May 5, you just might be in Brad Byrd‘s new video On My Way Down shot by Hollywood Director Brandon Rose that night.  If you can’t remember May 5, perhaps you’re the one dancing, singing the words and pointing in the air at 1:24 seconds into this video.

You may remember our series on Brad’s hit video Zero to the 101 shot by Brandon on St. Pat’s day (here’s some behind the scenes footage of that shoot).

Brad is Allen Estes‘ guest on this week’s Local Music Seen, which premieres tonight at 6:30pm on Cape Ann TV Channel 12.  It’s a half hour of excellent music and fascinating dialogue between two of Cape Ann’s best songwriters.  Plus you’ll get to hear three songs by Brad and Allen’s new song The Trouble with Me.

When the show is over, you can choose from half a dozen live music venues tonight with music for every taste you could imagine.   See the full live music schedule here.

Have you seen the sun today?  It’s coming back and will be here in full force soon enough, which is a good reminder to save $12 by getting your tickets now for the Gloucester Blues Festival on Saturday August 11 at Stage Fort Park.  See you there!

Had to take a picture, but had to take a bite first

Doesn’t this quiche look good?  You see why I had to take a bite before I got out my phone.  It tastes as good as it looks and is one reason why I’m very happy that Atlantis opened their Cafe today!

Peter had the Fish Cakes Benedict.

Wow!  Some of the best fish cakes we’ve ever had.  Too bad they don’t serve dinner.  These would make a super appetizer.  Jessica the chef uses a secret ingredient.  She wouldn’t let me say what it is, but you could always try to guess.  The Atlantis Oceanfront Cafe is now open to the public (you don’t have to be a guest at the hotel) 7 days a week from 7:30-11:00am.  I’d recommend going before the season gets crazy busy.

You can work up a good breakfast appetite by dancing tonight and there are plenty of opportunities for that.  Peter and I will be at Minglewood to see our friend Brad Byrd with his “A” Band (but we’ll do our best to stay out of the video shoot).  Now if you’d prefer to be on camera (see the folks from last time), put on something you want to be photographed in and come on down.  Music starts at 9.

But if you’d rather not take the chance on ending up in a video directed by Hollywood’s Brandon Rose, check out the other more anonymous opportunities for dancing in the full music lineup here.

Tomorrow we’ve got a major announcement and a very special Artist of the week (actually 2 in 1).  Stay tuned  . . .

What you never saw & What to watch for in Brad Byrd’s New Video

Yesterday former gimmesound Artist of the Week Brad Byrd released his new video on GMG (see here) directed by another former gimmesound Artist of the Week Brandon Rose.  Excellent job, Brandon, Brad, Brie and everyone who made this happen!

Part of this video was shot at Minglewood Tavern on St. Pat’s day, so we thought we’d piece together some of the behind-the-scenes footage of the making of that video for you to see today.  You’ll see actresses Brie Hobbs trying out for the part of Brad’s girl-friend at the casting call and Stacey Iwanicki, who played one of the fans.  And of course you’ll see our boy Joey C, who was there for the entire shoot.  In the final video, there’s a good shot of Joey in the audience.  Welcome to the big time, Joey!

Brad will be shooting another video at Minglewood next Saturday, May 5, so you’ve got another chance to be in the audience and get on screen!  Stay tuned to GMG for details.

You know summer is on the way when there are 8 venues with music on a Wednesday night in Gloucester alone!  See the full music lineup here.

“If you can get good hate mail, it means you’re actually doing very well.” ~ Brad Byrd

That’s right, folks.  In this video Hollywood director Brandon Rose (gimmesound Artist of the Week) and local musician Brad Byrd sing the praises of getting hate mail and give 4 reasons why it’s a good thing.  Watch the video and see all the reasons why Brad & Brandon love hate mail!

It feels like summer and Gloucester’s music scene is heating up too:  7@7 ~ SEVEN great music choices tonight beginning at 7pm.  See full music lineup here.

Brad, Brandon & Brie ~ Casting Call

Here’s the third of our series on the making of Brad Byrd’s music video Zero to the 101 directed by gimmesound Artist of the Week, Brandon Rose.  This video shows the casting call last week at Minglewood Tavern and ends with Brad Byrd and Brianna Hobbs (who was cast as the female lead) doing a bit of improv.

It’s Tuesday in Gloucester.  You know what that means: 7pm at Jalapenos and 10pm at Rhumb line.  See full music lineup here.


Want to know the secret of editing good video? Pay attention to this …

Last weekend, Hollywood director Brandon Rose came to Gloucester with his crew to direct a music video for Rockport native Brad Byrd‘s hit song Zero to the 101 that was featured on ABC TV’s Happy Endings, so we decided to feature him as gimmesound Artist of the Week.

We first met up with Brandon during the casting call at Minglewood Tavern on Thursday and talked about his approach to editing.  In this video (above), he gives us a good lesson on the subject, so PAY ATTENTION.

Later this week, we’ll have exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the making of Brad’s video.

Today it’s Dave Sag in the afternoon and Bandit Kings at night — two good choices, so get out and have some fun.  See local music details here.

So you don’t think you need a music video? Think again.

Hollywood director Brandon Rose, of Mind Venture Pictures, came to Gloucester this weekend to shoot a music video for Brad Byrd, who was gimmesound Artist of the Week in January.  So we figured it fitting for Brandon to be Artist of the Week starting today.

In this video, Brandon has advice for all you musicians out there trying to get your music heard and seen.

The rest of the week you’ll get the very first glimpse at the making of Brad’s music video for his hit song, Zero to the 101 — footage you’ll only see on Good Morning Gloucester — so stay tuned!

It’s a big day for music with different choices every hour starting at 4pm this afternoon featuring last week’s Artist of the week Michael O’Leary at the Landing (especially for those of you who just don’t want St. Patrick’s Day to be over).

See full music lineup here.

And don’t forget our good friend Allen Estes at the Rhumb Line with Orville Giddings ~ Always a great show!
