A Sneaky Preview

A huge favour from you guys........(here she goes again!).... I have the latest video from Casino that I would like to share with you and get some honest opinions on.

The band was invited to shoot their video in this posh hotel in Dundee as Paul from the band attends university close by. The managing staff were impressed at how well the boys were doing,  (yes, students do have a pint there now and again, via bursery or parental pecuniary aide) and they would be delighted to make the hotel the venue for a future video if they fancied the challenge. A plug for the hotel and an even cheaper video shoot for Casino!! They accepted a few weeks' later.

Set up started at 6.am and filming didn't finish until 10.30pm!  As my son is the drummer, he had a real hard job looking as if  he was hitting the drums PrettyBoy style! Guests were still in bed so he had to tone his stick control down but make it look like the kit was being wellied. The cheeky-faced barman is just one of their mates who accepted the cameo role offer, and this place was happy to let 7 uni students (including film shooter) in a huge function room with fully functioning optics!!  That boosted the ego (as well as the bloodstream) somewhat V.I.P.ish!!

Joking aside, I must add that their official website is undergoing construction and this video won't really be uploaded for official viewing until then, as will new photo's, gigging lists, info,  as well as a brand new song called Lynette. But for you selected few..... here's the latest  CASINO offering. Shadow Company.  As with their other video's - and live shows - they also chuck in that element of fun.. Hope you enjoy it - even if it is only for this one time - but there's a couple more vids from the guys on my sidebar. Would you place a bet on Casino...?

Hello Lena, thanks for the visit. Your son is steady, consistent and precise, good qualities in a drummer! Unfortunately my computer speakers aren't very good, so I have problems hearing some of the rhythm section. Much success to them!
