This is an outtake clip from the documentary “A Life Well Played”.
It was just recently rediscovered.
The clip is of Clint Hoover (harmonica) and me playing “Astoria” ( a song we recorded in 2008).
Clint and I eventually went on to form the quartet East Side with Matt Senjem and Michael Bissonnette.
We made two albums.
Clint has since moved to Pittsburgh but this is a nice memento of our partnership and friendship.
The clip was filmed in the fall of 2015.
