Grammy-nominated bluegrass-rock band The Infamous Stringdusters have partnered with Eleven Madison Park to jointly release a new video for The Stringdusters latest single Summercamp. Featuring a laid back acoustic groove and breezy multi-part harmonies, the seasonally appropriate song— currently tracking at Triple-A Radio—can be found on the recently released album Let It Go, which spent four weeks in the top 10 of the Americana Radio Chart.
The video was filmed in New York City on the eve of the band’s current Summer Tour 2014 during an exclusive private show at Eleven Madison Park, an award-winning restaurant that was given three stars by the Michelin Guide and fours stars by the New York Times. The band— Andy Hall (dobro), Andy Falco (guitar), Chris Pandolfi (banjo), Jeremy Garrett (fiddle) and Travis Book (upright bass)—was invited to play the restaurant’s private party, held during the popular Big Apple Barbecue Block Party. The rollicking show delivered an once-in-a-lifetime event for those lucky enough to get in the door.
Summercamp marks a breakthrough for The Infamous Stringdusters—the lauded outfit known for incomparable chops and a boundless expansion of acoustic music—as the most sonically universal song in the band’s growing catalog. As The Lonesome Road Review eloquently put it: “Summercamp is a three-and-a-half-minute masterpiece that sounds like what you would get if you locked Ron Sexsmith and the mid-1970s Seldom Scene in the studio and told them they couldn’t come out until they had a radio hit.” The band continues to craft an evolving Americana sound that transcends any traditional assumptions and leaves no audience unsatisfied.
