Sorry for the lengthy post but with @hollerado announcing their final album and tour I had to go back through my hard drives and find the videos from their “Meet The Mayor” tour back in the fall of 2011.
I first heard of Hollerado when I was volunteering at @1021theedge “Edgefest 2011” and they closed out the side stage. I was completely blown away by every aspect of their set. As soon as I got home o bought their record “Record In A Bag” which literally came in a ziplock-bag with confetti, stickers and an assortment of other things.
Not much longer later they announced their fall “Meet The Mayor”tour. Which the concept of meeting each mayor from each city they played. Some jumped on board others didn’t even respond to them. I reached out to them to see if I could lend a hand with some video on this tour; unfortunately I couldn’t commit to doing the full cross country tour I was able to join them on most of their southwestern Ontario dates (with the help from @nodrog89 & @ssdoaker with additional filming). I had no idea what it would come from these shows and I was super nervous/anxious.
So many fun experiences were had on those dates including meeting Walter Gretzky and getting a tour of his home. Here’s some clips from the video & tour that I had to whip together.
Thank you for the great tunes, memories and for believing in me and giving me the chance to push myself into film. Thank you @mennovers , @nixonboyd , @jakeryb , and @deanbxter. Can’t wait to celebrate with you at one (or a few of these shows)!!
