Video From Arena Performance

On 08/09/13, Patrick and Rich performed at halftime during the Chicago Sky vs Connecticut Sun in the Mohegan Sun Arena. The video is in and picks up at the medley which included George Clinton’s “We’ve Got The Funk“, Bee Gee’s “Stayin’ Alive” and Dave Matthews Band’s “Crash Into Me” before jumping back into Patrick’s SRV-influenced “In Step“.

The video also captures the beginner of the 2nd song, “Slán Abhaile“.
