ELO Video Shoot (April 10 2016) (5)[i]

Waking up at 10:45 a.m.

Irish Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Strawberries, Raisins, and Kefir. Yerba Mate Tea.

Gotta busy day ahead. Meeting at the music space to rehearse with DEJA – we're having another drummer, Tripp Johnson, fill in for a couple months while Drew recovers from shoulder surgery.


Then, two rock school sessions – got some repeats and some newbies. Overall it's a fun group of band members.

Grilled PB&J. Fuji Apple. Oolong Tea.

Then, straight to Kempsville High School for an ELO video shoot in the auditorium. We haven't been doing ELO rehearsals for a few months now but the idea is to film the band performing four songs over a studio recording to help sell the show. I'm playing through a whole new keyboard rig with a Moog and a Fender Rhodes but nothing's actually making sounds. We perform take after take of the songs – everything is lip synced so we have to be spot on with our vocal parts and leads and such. Everything is going much later than I thought. 80% of the time we're all just waiting until the cameras change positions.
