Jeremiah Johnson Band Releases Bonneville Shuffle Video Produced By V8TV Productions, Inc.
This is too cool! We had the awesome opportunity to help The Jeremiah Johnson Band produce a video for their latest instrumental Bonneville Shuffle! They wrote the song for an episode of Muscle Car Of The Week, and in return, we produced, directed, shot, and edited this video for the band. Of course, if features some great blues music and American fins and chrome! Thanks to The Jeremiah Johnson Band for the music, and to Ben Koopman for lots of hard work shooting and creative editing at V8TV Productions, Inc. Go get the new Jeremiah Johnson album "Straitjacket" - you'll dig it! We sure do!
The video features Jeremiah Johnson on guitar, Benet Schaeffer on drums with Tom Maloney on bass and Frank Bauer playing the saxophone. Tony Anthonis acts as the dealership employee in this, offering a choice of ’57s while the band plays an instrumental with fifties beat, saxophone, and Johnson’s guitar work. You’ll feel like you’re in a rockabilly episode of Peter Gunn watching this.
“Bonneville Shuffle” was originally written to be background music for an episode of V8TV, a TV show that restores and modifies Classics and American Muscle Cars. We were told they needed some music for a 57′ Bonneville, so we got to work creating this song. In the end we liked it so much, we included the song on our debut album STRAITJACKET,on RUF RECORDS. The director of this video, Kevin Oeste, had some great ideas for this video that turned it into a celebration of the 57′ American Classic Automobile. We shot the video in a old abandoned Chevy dealership and have three amazing classic cars featured, all from 1957. 57′ Bonneville, 57′ Pontiac Chieftain and a 57′ Chevrolet Belair. We hope you enjoy the video and song as we take you back in time to 1957. — Jeremiah Johnson
