 ‘In Session’ Video:
The Purple Sessions began life in 2008 in Drogheda before moving to Boyles of Slane in the Summer of 2011. Run by musician Gerry Hodgers the objective of The Purple Sessions is to give bands a platform to perform and to produce a high quality mastered video for the act to use as a marketing tool. At present there have been over 72,000 views on the channel. In Boyles at The Purple Sessions there is a great opportunity for an artist to purchase on the night an ‘In Session’ video which will edit snippets of the best tracks with a short interview.
“Gerry!! THAT IS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!!! Man, you've come a long way in your production, congratulations for persevering!! ... Really really happy with the outcome of this cheers .... As we speak a campaign has started in the US, a consultant is shopping my music to 25 management and 25 booking agencies across the USA, and your video is hitting all of them! Very exciting!!,see you again! All the best”
