Inspiration:  

When asked for ideas of how to market our concert, Woody suggested a simple storyline of someone getting ready for a great night of singing and dancing, excited to be going on a date to the concert, and wearing his most dapper zoot suit! We filmed at our star’s Berkeley home, and then cut some scenes during rehearsal. This hour’s worth of shots and scenes kept us laughing and having a good time. Our marketing team brought the story to life through editing and music, and we were excited with the final product. We hope you enjoy it, too!
