Piano and a Microphone: 2016 Gala Event

The death of an icon left Minneapolis and the world grieving for their beloved musical genius, Prince. The album, “Piano and a Microphone 1983” has just been released this month after nearly two and half years following the legend’s passing. We decided it would be appropriate to circulate the little bit of media (that we are allowed to share) from the “Piano and a Microphone” Gala event 2016 with beloved fans online.

January 21st, 2016, three months before Prince’s death, our crew was welcomed aboard to collaborate with Prince and Paisley Park Enterprise in Chanhassen, MN. We provided a multi-camera video shoot and lighting production for Prince’s Gala event, “Piano and a Microphone.” Paisley Park was the place to be for four nights of music and entertainment, which included a DJ set from the man himself, as well as a first time solo performance.

The opportunity to provide production services at Prince’s home studio for two weekends was due to a past project at the Triple Rock Social Club with a local band named PHO, who opened up for Graham Central Station on day two of this event. This 2015 fall project involved lighting production as well a full-length audio & video production of PHO’s live performance. The undeniable talent of these musicians, paired with our production services, thankfully caught the attention of Paisley Park Enterprise, which led us to being a part of Prince’s last musical performance at his home studio.

Our company felt very accomplished and honored to have our work praised by the Paisley Park family as well as invited to this historic event. Fast-forward to today and we still have some unforgettable memories being a part of a special piece of music history right here in Minnesota. Along with some unforgettable memories, we would like to share some photographs along with this promotional piece for the Prince’s “Piano and a Microphone” Gala event.

Did he put your million dollar check

Its only a teaser if it comes from the estate or the music industry. This film production company may be thinking that if they show pix, the estate will get on it. IN other words, wishful thinking. I think the

P and M tour footage being released makes the most sense, but I don't want to get my hopes up and be disappointed.

Wishful thinking for sure, but you never know!!! Prince hired these guys for a reason, would love to see the DJ set if ever released.

Damn I wish Prince agreed to having the Sydney Opera House shows filmed by Dainty during the Oz leg, he pulled last minute.

Doesn't bode well that just about every photo in the link is out of focus. Whatever. Not quite the shine of excellence, that's all.

You don’t comprehend well, do you? I said ‘out of focus’, which means they have the wrong depth of field. That has nothing to do with being ‘low rez’.

Ah, bite me. I comprehend just fine. Depending on the way the web designer choose to import and/or format the .raw original digital photos, they absolutely could choose to upload photos that were less clear versus more clear.

Peace yes

The audio & visual are of excellent quality. They showed this performance in total over both Celebrations. P looks painfully frail but his voice is truly spectacular. This needs to be released ASAP. 💜

I have the audio (which is amazing), but a friend who was at the Celebration last year said the video hurt to watch. I know everyone's reaction will be different, but I can't help but wonder if that's why they're letting some time pass before releasing it.

Now you're just embarrassing yourself. Take my advice. Stop now.

Because they care about our feelings? Some of us may feel sad by watching it? I doubt that' s the reason. Not tryng to be mean; but they don't really know, or care about us as individuals. so I highly doubt that is the reason. Like everyone else, who was unable to see him perform live, I just wish that the estate got that we want to see this performance already.

They showed parts of it when I went on the Ultimate Experience a while back. Very clesr video and audio. To watch the replay in the same room it was filmed, without him there, and other people losing their shit (myself included) when they looked at the screen and heard what was playing, was probably one of the most poignant moments of my life. That and the unexpected reveal of the acapella multitrack of "Breakdown" in Studio A. I was a wreck.
