In the spirit of transparency we offer up this next series of Skeleton Crew® video performances. We don’t want to give the world the impression that Skeleton Crew® only performed at 20,000 plus seat arenas. On the contrary, Skeleton Crew® was an equal opportunity venue performer; yes we played large venues, but also enjoyed some of our best performances in smaller ones, too, like the State Theatre and Royal Oak Music.

One thing the band takes great pride in is its consistency. We played exactly with the same intensity and attention to detail in a parking lot, back lot, beer hall, bistro, coffee shop or in someone’s living room.

Which brings us to our new video series: Skeleton Crew® Live at Griff’s Grill. Griff’s was a cool place to gig, right in the heart of the city of Pontiac, Michigan and in the shadows of the Pontiac Silverdome where the Detroit Lions used to play. The video tape of this classic footage of the band was dug up by our drummer Greg’s beautiful wife, Janine Tyler. Thank you so much Janine!

Many songs from the Skeleton Crew® repertoire only appear in this rare series which makes the Skeleton Crew® Live at Griff’s Grill series a true gem. The video is hand-held, well-worn, and not the quality of the Palace of Auburn Hills performance, but good enough to get a raw feel of what the band was like in close quarters.

Come back often over the next few weeks to get down and dirty with Skeleton Crew® Live at Griff’s Grill. This week’s song is “Trumpeting Soul.” Hope you Njoy!
