On Sunday The Fitzroy and Green Rock River Band went busking – partly to raise a little more awareness for The Fitzroy and partly to spread some Christmas cheer… although I did see one mother quickly cover her daughter’s ears when they played ‘Drink here ’til I die’.
We hit up South Bank in London, arriving at 8.30am to set up. It was a glorious day and by 10.30am the guys were playing their first set. Instantly they drew in a big crowd – much bigger than I think any of us were expecting. There was a lot of goodwill and cheer from the crowd and a great atmosphere.
Unfortunately after forty minutes or so we were moved on! But this didn’t deter us – we simply found another spot further down the river and the band set up all over again and got the crowds gathering.
It was a fun day – the guys sold out of their CD’s, we handed out all of our fliers and The Fitzroy word was well and truly spread along South Bank. We couldn’t have asked for any more.
Here’s a little video of the day – hope you enjoy it.
If you don’t know, Green Rock River Band are creating the soundtrack for the film. Not only that, but they will be appearing in the film and playing the soundtrack on screen!
Cooped up in one of the rooms in the hotel is ‘The Band’. They constantly play their ramshackle and makeshift instruments. The music echoes through the sub and has a direct impact on some of the key turning points in the story. It’s going to be very cool.
They really are going to give the film such a unique energy and feel, I can’t wait to work with them.
If you want to hear more, do check out their website!
And don’t forget, you can always get the soundtrack with the film on our kickstarter page. Or if you are feeling very generous you can have GRRB play at your next party, wedding, Bar Mitzvah or whatever you can think of.
3 days to go folks! It’s exciting times.
