Today, Tony Manard brings a whole passel of friends to Music Video Monday. He and his Big Ole Band set up in Clayborn Temple to perform "Ain't No Freedom" for director Christian Walker. His regular eight-member band was joined by a choir of 19 singers for this live-to-tape recording. "Like most independent artists, 'I get by with a little help from my friends.' This took a lot of friends. On top of Big Ole Band regulars, I wanted to enlist a choir of friends to help us get the message out," says Manard.
"Ain't No Freedom" is an epic cry for justice in our troubled times, filmed inside one of the spiritual homes of the Civil Rights movement.
