Earlier this week, we featured a glowing review of Tacoma-based blue-eyed-soul band the BGP‘s brand new EP, Fort Knox. The fellas have just released the official music video (directed and produced by yours truly) to the album’s first single, “Uhmerica,” and we’re honored that they have chosen SMI to premiere it. The video was shot over the course of a day at the Washington State Fair and features members of the band, as well as random strangers, dancing, singing, and generally having a blast in front of various scenes at the Fair. Enjoy the video below and some behind the scenes photos of the filming.

The BGP’s new album “Fort Knox” is out now. You can purchase or stream it at the following links: iTunes | Bandcamp | Spotify

Keep connected with the band through their website and Facebook/Twitter/Instagram.
