Zach Bevill, singer/songwriter/guitarist with the Drifters tells us that they were going for something different with this video, directed by Nathan Thompson of Disegno Productions.
“The video was shot with some friends here in Nashville. We recorded two videos that evening, but we really love the fun vibe on this one – with all our friends jamming along with us in the background. Hope you like it!
The video and audio were all recorded live, but with multi-tracked audio and high definition video equipment in a studio setting. So it’s really our own hybrid of a professional music video and live concert footage.”
Zach said they would have more details about Yellow Tag Mondays soon (release date, label, etc).
I’m sure that the guys enjoyed the fun, ironic vibe of having a bunch of friends in the background “playing along” on a variety of wildly inappropriate instruments, without even recognizing how similar it was to the iconic Fender Guitar catalogs and guitar class books from the early 1960s. Readers of a certain age will flash back to those images of “typical” suburban kids with crew cuts and white socks playing along on shiny new Fender gear.
Everything old is new again!
