Photo montage video I put together for “Beijing Blues” the title track of Woodie Alan’s debut CD and the song that really began to turn us into a real band.
“I Don’t Care” at the Xiamen Beach Festival, in front a crowd of 5-6,000. As described in the prologue of Big in China. This multi-camera shoot for and broadcast on Fujian TV.
Original tune “Sri Lankan Sunset” at the Star Live on Beijing Blues tour of China. May 2009. This performance was part of a drummer’s showcase and highlights Lu Wei.
Bob Dylan’s “Meet Me in the Morning” at the JZ Club, Hangzhou, China. This was a memorable gig and we’re happy to have this clip documenting it.

Acoustic “Beijing Blues.” The Stone Boat May, 2009. CD release tour.
Bob Dylan’s “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go” at Jianghu Jiuba, Beijing. March 2008, just as we were starting to really gel. We got much better than this, but it captures a moment.

In 1995, I had dinner with BB King and Buddy Guy in an Austin, Texas studio. It was after rehearsal and before recording the Tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan.
