We live in a video world. One reason to do shows in Nashville is to capture your act on video for future promotion; for posting on social media and your web site and to help sell your act to music industry A&R.

It definitely can increase your credibility to be backed up with some of the very best musicians in the Nashville session and live recording scene. B.E.. can arrange a Nashville based pro video crew of up to three cameras to capture the essential moments in the shows.  Ask about video or photography pricing, it’s likely the best investment you can make in your career.

All photos and videos on this page were taken on shows played in 2015, 2016 and 2017 except the photo above  of Basket Case, the songs of Jon Smith, featuring Kristen McNamara (for which Mr. Watson was the bass player and band leader) was taken in 2009.
