After a successful third summer season in Branson, MO in 2017 that featured headlining shows at Branson Landing, Big Cedar’s Annual Fourth of July Celebration, the Cal Ripken World Series and their own 8:00 pm prime time slot at Grand Shanghai Theatre on Branson’s famed 76 Strip, Prince Ivan is continuing their forward momentum with a brand new music video release filmed entirely in Branson and featuring America’s Got Talent Top 5 Finalists, Voices of Glory.
“It has been over two years—too long!—since we’ve released any music,” Brydon Brett of Prince Ivan said. “We’ve been writing a lot though and we’re so excited to finally introduce some of our new music to our fans.” Always looking to innovate, Prince Ivan has taken their production quality to a new level with this new release. “I think ‘Back to the Boogie’ shows how much we’ve improved as writers and producers over the last couple of years,” Aaron Ellsworth of Prince Ivan said. “And everybody else on our team has gotten better, too. We think you’ll love what our cinematographer, David Newton, has done with the video. And we couldn’t be more excited to team up with our friends, Voices of Glory, either.”
Natives of Branson, MO, Prince Ivan has always sought to highlight what makes Branson great and this video is no different. They teamed up with the Branson Ferris Wheel, the City of Branson and some amazing dancers and singers from the Branson area to show just how cool Branson is. “One of our goals with this video was to shoot it entirely in Branson using Branson talent,” Ellsworth says. “We’ve shown it to a few people who’ve never been to Branson and they said, ‘This looks amazing! Where did you shoot that?!’ This is exactly the response we were hoping for. We wanted to show Branson in a modern and cool way and I think we accomplished that.”
No strangers to having a vision, Prince Ivan also has a higher purpose for their new single and video. “We’re not blind to what is going on in the world right now,” says Brett. “Our vision as songwriters and producers is to build bridges between people of all nations, ages, religions and races and with all of the hardship going on right now, we felt like it was time we combatted hate and prejudice with love and fun. That’s why we created this song. We think it shows that we can all smile and dance together and that we should!”
