Funk It’s Bear Creek Music Festival 2011 teaser video

As you can image, Bear Creek Music Festival was magical! The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park was amazing, the artists were amazing, and the people were amazing (and my close friends know that I don’t use that word often).

The music park is perfect, all of the stages are very close together yet there is very little audio bleed through. The vibe is loose and open and everyone is there to party and have a great time. I met a ton of people and I have never seen soo many audio and video tapers in one place. I was very surprised by the amount of people shooting video on either video cameras or SLR cams with external mics. From what I hear, this is one of the only festivals that is a complete free for all as far as shooting video is concerned.

Needless to say, I was a wild man and I ended up shooting 14 hours of video over the course of 3 days. I could have done much more, but I ran out of space and had to borrow a memory card on the last night (thanks Bob!).

Over the next few months I will be featuring many of these videos here. For now, check out this teaser video to whet your appetite.

R.I.P. Michael Jackson – Tribute Mix by RandyB

Michael Jackson Tribute Mix by RandyB – August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009

This is just something I did two years ago after MJ passed. It doesn’t have the slickest mixes and crossfades, its just a spontaneous selection of tunes mixed mainly from vinyl. I know that everyone and their mother made MJ mixes, and many of them are better than this. It was just an excuse for me to bug out for an hour by myself. Why not share it?
