With a limited budget, I shot this video downtown in one take. It took about 40 takes to get this one where the people, traffic, sun, and everything else collaborated with us. Grant wielded the camera, Daniel pulled focus, and I had a speaker velcroed to my chest while John and Kelly took cues and performed, ignoring massive distractions. But I think this really captured the feeling of their song (A wonderful cover of the song by Neil Young).
Fumosonic is a collaboration between trumpeter John Fumo and singer-songwriter Kelly Fumo. Kelly Fumo had previously worked extensively on television jingles and film scores while John has played trumpet with a wide variety of artists including Tito Puente, Neil Young, Brian Setzer, Faith Hill, James Brown, Tower of Power, U2, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Bon Jovi, Neil Diamond, and many others.
