Musical Blast from the Past

Video from a tour 14 years ago popped up on youtube recently. Fun timing with the Martin Garrix 7-up commercial having come out earlier this year. Music, and instruments, from this tour were definitely not EDM related however…

Robert Deeble on vocals and guitar, Peter Deeble on drums, Brad Lindsay on guitar, and myself on upright bass.




From a show in Seattle area long a go... t-shirt behind me best describes.

7-up commercial with DJ Martin Garrix

Very special commercial with world renown DJ Martin Garrix for 7-Up dropped earlier this year. Having a deaf wife and being a sometime professional musician meant this commercial definitely hit home...

I served as the "voice" of the deaf actors which is heard interpreting their comments. No multiple takes, nor any ADR session was done for this commercial. Interpretation heard in the spot was recorded in real-time live on-set. Pressure... ;)

BTS detail... I had a blown MCL during the filming of this commercial, and on day three I left directly from set for LAX to fly to Switzerland and then drive from there to France to ride the first DCT Honda Africa Twin released from Japan. Was limping the whole time, so things were actually easier on the bike in Europe!





The amount of work that goes into creating a video like this is staggering.
