Reigning Parade short film #1 … Swingin’ at the Patricia

Ladies and gentlemen, here it is, the first Reigning Parade video to accompany the first Reigning Parade music release!

Why is this necessary you ask?

It’s not.

The music speaks for itself just fine, but part of our mission is using media to offer listeners a window into the world of the artist and into their inspiration. This desire comes from the simple premise that the more you know about something, the more you appreciate it. Whether it’s food, wine, music or drywalling,… the more you understand it, the deeper your experience. (Ok, maybe not drywalling. But you get the idea)

And we couldn’t have started with a better story than James Danderfer‘s album “Swingin’ at the Patricia” which connects James’ hometown of Vancouver with the legendary jazz artist Jelly Roll Morton and the (still thriving) club that he performed in between 1919 and 1920, Pat’s Pub.

So sit back and enjoy a brief telling of this story on our videos page here and then have a listen to the first half of the album on our music page here.
