Exclusive: Watch Taryn Manning Party With Seniors in Dreaming Bull's 'Smile On Your Face' Video
Dreaming Bull's "Smile On Your Face" sounds like it could be a huge hit, and it's got a music video that's a party in itself.
Join Orange Is the New Black's Taryn Manning as she visits her grandma in a retirement home, just in time for an impromptu performance from the garage-soul band. Fans of Fitz & the Tantrums and the Black Keys, take notice.
And what about that little bit of flute at the end?
"We did the shoot in the rec room of a senior living facility," Dreaming Bull tells Billboard. "The old folks on camera were priceless. They asked to be paid in donuts, pizzas, margaritas and music. From 8 a.m. onwards it was literally a non-stop party. It's an experience we'll never forget, and our retirees said they couldn't remember the last time they had so much fun. Getting them to dance hard for multiple takes didn't seem to kick their asses as much as you'd think it would have."
And there was some Orange Is the New Black vibing going on between Manning and the cast, too.
"The matriarch of the retirement home who plays Taryn's grandmother in the clip is known as 'Red,' which is the name of the matriarch on OITNB, too. Naturally, they hit it right off."
"Smile On Your Face" comes off the L.A. and Chicago-based band's self-released EP, DB EP.
