2009

Dustin O'Hara

A collaboration with Art and Tina McLean that culminated in a video installation, a website, and an weekend BBQ event. The weekend event took on a life of its own, becoming a family reunion, a neighborhood mixer, a band reunion, and memorial for a former bandmate.

In this video clip, from the BBQ event, you see Art playing base and Tina and their son Michael singing. Later in the video, Tina's sister joins in. A few days laters during a post project decompression, Michael pointed out that while almost everyone in their family is a musician or performer they had never played together until this project. He wondered why it took an outsider coming in to make it happen.
