General O to their friends

I don't think I've said enough about how much I love General Oglethorpe and the Panhandlers and their new album "Whistle the Dirges"

There's something about great musicians who are also art students that results in an amazing collaboration.  Devin Smith, who founded the band along with Anna Chandler, has been attending SCAD for film and his exquisite talent shows through their first music video.  Just watch - the very last scene will give you chills.

Their next video for the song "Red Hot" (one of my favorites) will be out soon, but both videos have already been nominated for Best Non-Narrative films of SCAD 2011.

I was lucky enough that I was able to get down to Savannah in February for the album release concert and the event reminded me what I miss about doing event photography.  They are amazing musicians and artists and I was ever so fortunate to experience the grand event they put together.
