Dashboard Hula Girls...Suit and dobro country blues!

new music video in advance of CD release.

Just released this week, "Suit and Tie" is a new Dashboard Hula Girls piece, classic country blues, open tuning, alternating bass on a Martin J40 with Dobro slide on the side. “Suit and Tie” is a noirish black and white ode to the gospel roots of country blues with a dash of southern gothic and hints of the Blues Brothers.

The Dashboard Hula Girls are a music project based in Beacon, NY producing music based on early 20th century blues and reflective of the current resurgent interest in Americana and roots based music. Suit and Tie is being released ahead of an EP expected in October 2013. The song and video were written and edited by DJ El Jefe, leader of the Dashboard Hula Girls. The song was recorded and engineered by Thunder Pumpkin Recording in Lambertville, NJ.

The video was shot in the historic Old Saint Peter’s Church in Van Cortlandville, NY, built in 1757. We are told George Washington napped here during the revolutionary war. Video was shot on two iPhones with the 8MM app and edited in Final Cut Pro.
