Dan Tyminski shoots video for "Wheels"
Thursday, July 17, 2008
– Dan Tyminski, who just released his bluegrass album "Wheels" last month, shot a video for the title track.
The video, directed by Rocky Schenck, who co-produced with Brad Paul, was shot on The Sierra Hotel train car on June 10 -11 in California. The Sierra Hotel car was part of the California Zephyr line that ran from Chicago to Los Angeles from 1948 to 1983. The car was then purchased privately and completely restored and customized. The producers of the video chartered the car and had it attached to the Amtrak Coast Starlight train (which runs from Seattle to Los Angeles) in Oakland and shot the video during the journey south to Los Angeles and back to Oakland the next day. "Wheels" features grand iconic scenery, informal performances and humorous vignettes about the band finding ways to stay entertained while on the road.
