Last week I headed to Chicago to hang with my buddy, Jimmie Deeghan, on the Bedroom to Stage Tour. As always, it was great catching up and capturing some songs. I ended up getting to know the Sparks The Rescue guys, and filmed a live session with them as well. If you get a chance, head out and support the tour!! They are killer musicians and even better dudes.

Here’s a preview of the air-to-air photo shoot my dad and I did for Warbird Digest Magazine. You might recognize the plane from the MxPx documentary I directed, Both Ends Burning.

As promised, here is the second half of my Every Avenue Last Call Tour photo blog. I can’t wait to share this documentary with everyone!

Happy New Years! I’m back, (alive) from the Every Avenue Last Call Tour. In all truth, this may have been my favorite tour I’ve ever been a part of. There are only a few times in life when friendships feel more like family, and this was the case with the EA guys. I really love those dudes, and I feel very honored to help send them off right. I can’t wait to show everyone the footage. In the meantime, here is my tour photo blog, part one. I’ll release part two next week. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram (@bryanbuchelt), this will be a repeat. Sorry bout that.

Also coming next week is the second song from the Rebel N’ Rose Snaproll Session. I think everyone will be really stoked on it. Have a great week!

Here is another long overdue hodgepodge post to catch everyone up on my recent adventures. While I’ve not done much filming in the last two months, (which has been a welcome break) I have able to spend a lot of time with old friends, and listen to a lot of killer music. That’s not to say there isn’t a lot on the calender. Expect some new project announcements very soon!

Ok, so this is my long overdue hodgepodge post. The last two months have been a complete blur. Here are just a few photographs from my adventures. I don’t normally caption pictures, but in this case I really need to.

There are certain milestones, or “bucket-list” items, that you don’t preemptively add to your list, simply because you didn’t realize they were even possible. This weekend can best be summed up like that. I flew out with MxPx, to New York and Philly, to celebrate the band’s 20th anniversary. I watched my music video playing on Times Square, (video to come), and to the cheers of fans, grinned as my 20th Anniversary doc was projected on a movie screen before the band took the stage. Both were so humbling, and moved me emotionally. I could literally write you 50 pages on how and why this band has impacted my life, but I’ll spare you. I’ll simply say that being a part of this band’s creative team over the last 3 years has been nothing short of an honor, and the only thing I cherish more than the music is the friendships.
