Columbus, Ohio’s Red Wanting Blue has released the whimsical video for its single “Where You Wanna Go.” The video has been a long labor of love for director Jenna Pace. Shooting locations included the City of New York, Coney Island, several locations in Connecticut, the Delaware Water Gap and Maryland. Pace did a month of scouting to find these locations searching in New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Vermont, Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio and Michigan to come up with the backwoods scenes, old-time amusement parks with carousels and “Alice In Wonderland”-type settings that make this clip so unique and memorable. “Where You Wanna Go” is a colorful and fantastical video that further illustrates an already visual song.
The clip comes along at the right time as Red Wanting Blue is beginning to get some well-deserved national attention after a decade-plus as a rust belt sensation. Fans of Red Wanting Blue have long known and loyally followed the band’s must-see show and are well aware that no one seems to leave a Red Wanting Blue performance without feeling their power. Now’s the chance to see what the fuss is about as Red Wanting Blue follows-up up its last sold-out Mercury Lounge show in NYC with a special showcase on Sept. 21st, 2010 at 9PM.
If you’re new to Red Wanting Blue, a talented fan recently completed and posted a short mini-documentary with the co-operation of the band. Seen HERE, the clip takes you right into the Red Wanting Blue’s tour bus (a moving thrift store, essentially) and right on to the stage with Scott, Markus, Greg, Eric and Dean. For those wanting more of this, word is that the feature-length documentary on Red Wanting Blue’s long and unique story is nearing completion. Never Enough: The Story of The Greatest Band You’ve Never Heard Of is produced by Davenport Theatrical (Avenue Q, Will Ferrell’s You’re Welcome America) and is tagged on the company’s website thusly: “They have thousands of fans. But they’ve yet to get a record deal. And they’ve also yet to give up.” Wonder how this one will turn out???
