Check this stunning new Danny Kroha video from Third Man



Well, this is a nice, unexpected treat at the end of a short work week: Danny Kroha, in high def glory, doing "Walking Boss." It's Kroha's birthday tomorrow, and he is celebrating it in Europe, touring with his old band the Gories, whose new 45 (first new recordings in years!) is amazing and I need to review it, OK I'll do that next week. Meantime, here's this to get your party started for the weekend.

We’re very excited to announce a new addition to the Third Man lexicon… A very cool collaboration with Red Digital Cinema Camera Company that we are calling The Blue Room Spotlight Series. The Spotlight Series features visually arresting, intimate performances in our Blue Room venue, shot by in-house film and video guru Brad Holland on RED cameras, and posted in 4K resolution. The Blue Room Spotlight Series will feature a variety of artists either local to Nashville or passing through town... They could be TMR recording stars or just artists we admire and respect. All genres of the musical spectrum will be represented, and artists are encouraged to re-interpret their material in ways that fans previously haven’t heard. Anything goes, and we'll be there to capture it.

Since tomorrow is our Detroit Rock 'n' Roll hero Danny Kroha’s 50th birthday, we’re going to go ahead and launch this baby with his incredible version of Clarence Ashley’s Walking Boss on a baritone dulcimer that Danny tells us previously adorned a friends home as a purely ornamental display. A recorded version of Walking Boss is featured on Danny’s Third Man release Angels Watching Over Me. Danny, of course, is also one of the main wo/men in The Gories who are currently on tour in Europe, go and check them out if you can, and don’t forget we’ve just released a new single by the band which you can pick up right now, right here.
