“Not your typical superhero flick… I didn’t expect to get teary-eyed.”

We will keep you posted on our progress.

Petaluma Batman can be seen a segment in this trailer.

The Gravel Spreaders at #Petaluma’s Lagunitas – Hee Haw Metal???

The Gravel Spreaders, a Bay Area band, made an appearance at the Lagunitas Tap Room (and that’s stating it mildy). The genre of their music, Hee Haw Metal!  What?  It was so different it draws you in and the crowd was getting into it. You had to pay attention because you had no idea what they were going to play next.

The band is made of four members Bud Hole on bandit bass and lead vocals, Buzzy Do-Well on banjo, Dr. Buck Knife playing lead on mandolin and jaw harp, and Uncle Mungar on acoustic and slide guitars. Barefoot, overalls, cowboy and trucker hats you’re thinking country, but then they’re jammin’ tunes like Ozzie Osborne, Aerosmith, Pink Floyd, ACDC. Most shocking to us was a punk song from the Ramones. They fill their songs with comedic innuendos of clever lyrics, blowing raspberries or letting out chicken calls.

Lagunitas Tap room has excellent bands on a regular basis, but we have to say that this band had an entertainment factor not seen before and not to soon forgotten.  We hope that  they make a return appearance in the future.

Here is a video of one of their performance of Ozzie Osborns Crazy Train.

DJI Phantom 2 Drone Video Over Hills of Petaluma by Animal Robo

This cool video was filmed in #Petaluma using a DJI Phantom 2 drone rc.  I did some searching and found some drones for sale on Amazon starting at $1,300.  So this artist is using more than just your typical Parrot drone that you see being used around town.  As you can see by the photo of this machine it has a drone camera built into it and was made for capturing cool videos like the one you are about to see.

I like how this artist added music, motorcycles, hiking together in this production that shows off our hills in Petaluma. Obviously this production took a lot of time and energy.  I hope he returns to do more.

Song: Lights and Motion – Aerials

Filmed on two DJI Phantom 2’s with H3-2D Gimbals supporting GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition’s.

Handheld clips shot using Feiyutech G3 Steadygimbal.

Wolfman Jack meets Louis Armstrong at Lagunitas Tap Room

First of all, Happy Father’s Day to all fathers out there.

Lawrence “Lipbone” Redding is songwriter, singer, guitarist, composer and performance artist according to his wikipedia page. He has an unusual talent to mimic the sound of brass instruments with his mouth and incorporate them into his live musical performance.  Hence his name is a contraction of Lip and Trombone – “Lipbone”.   His southern upbringing gives him a background for one of the oldest forms of music found in a variety of cultures today.

In this performance at the Lagunitas Brewing Company Tap Room, at the beginning and end he gives credence to Positively Petaluma.  Thanks Lipbone!
