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.
