Brando Quin opens up once again and draws us into his rich Irish/English American heritage giving us an entertaining Music Video of unique, original, expressive and comedic American (nfl) Football Fan Comedy/Pop Music.

The Award Winning Video shot entirely on location at Castles N Coasters Theme Park in Phoenix Arizona by award winning director Robert Reid of "The Reid Effect" was shot in High Definition Widescreen complete with his own brand of special effects.

"We felt Castles N Coasters in Phoenix Arizona was the perfect location for this theme song which has a comedic carnival type atmosphere beat to it. The carousel, bumper cars and other rides at the amusement park blended Brando's vision of music with my vision of the (nfl) football fans who religiously watch the game of football weekly from the comfort of their own sofa's entertainingly!"--Robert Reid

"The (nfl's) Sofa League of Heroes" opens another chapter in Brando's life that captures the imagination of football fans everywhere. This song was originally written as the theme song for a television series which revolves around four couples during the (nfl) Football season. The women are always scheming to avoid the subject of football entirely while their husband's lives revolve around football 24/7. The pilot episode is in the pre-production planning stages and is expected to begin filming in 2008 at an undisclosed location in Phoenix Arizona.

"SUNDAY, SUNDAY, SUNDAY!!!!! Production is perfect sounds very professional. Love the whole "Umpa" band sound with the horns. Kinda reminded me of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Lyrics are great I mean what's funnier than what goes on during Sunday Night Football. Funny shtuff."--PaperbackNinja Detroit, Michigan

The Award Winning Song "The (nfl's) Sofa League of Heroes" is the #9 song on the CD, "Brando Quin The Journey" released by Glaxicon on September 1st 2007. The song has already won the following awards at; Track of the Day on 19Aug2007 in Comedy, Best Male Vocals in Comedy week of 20Aug2007, Best Mood in Comedy week of 20Aug2007 and Most Original in Comedy week of 20Aug2007.

RavenPheat's Lead Guitarist Todd Larsen, Backup Vocalist HumanJones and Pianist Tom Krummenacker had prior commitments during the making of the video and were unable to attend the shoot. Associate Producer Janet Oesterling stepped in and lined up Safford Arizona's most famous local band, "Shock and Awe" to take their place in the music video.

"Shock and Awe's Michael Curtis, Dave Gentry, Janet Gentry and Mike Cheevers stepped up to the plate and did a magnificent job during the shooting of this video. Their incredible musicianship made this video a delight to work on and I know who to call for backup in the future!"--Brando Quin.

Glaxicon also collaborated with Technical Assistant and Stage/Lighting Development Team; Michael Macpherson, Carla Kirlin and Jess Darin of Phoenix Arizona's very own live performing band - Element115. "We watched Element 115's music video's and were highly entertained by their use of an Alien on a 12' tall plasma screen TV as the drummer. My vision for Brando and his band was to be playing live on stage while a Pro Football game played in the background, Michael Macpherson's setup was exactly what was needed for the live play by play effect we were looking for."

Next were the football fans for the video. "I (Brando) live in Central Arizona a small rural town east of Phoenix. There is a small town school Solomon Elementary who for years hasn't won a football game but the kids play every game with heart. The last game of the 2007 season Solomon's Football team walked away with their first win in a very long time. As soon as I heard the story of this town's team win I contacted Kevin England the Principal of the school and asked if he'd like to have his students attend the Music Video Shoot in Phoenix to provide the crowd scene."

"We were delighted to give our boy's and girls of Solomon Elementary the opportunity to be involved in the making of Brando's Music Video. I felt it would be a real town booster and give an unusual reward to the football team for winning the final game of the 2007 season. Brando treated the students as stars and provided them with gifts, CD's, books and memories that will last them a lifetime!"--Kevin England, Principal Solomon Elementary

Brando's songs exemplify his own personal Irish/English American ethics, philosophy and determination which say, "If you get knocked down ten times, you get up eleven." -- Brando Quin

Also on board was Joan Langdon of "Face and Body Art by Joan" a well known Phoenix hair and makeup artist. Joan was delighted to come on board and provided the Solomon Elementary Students with face painting to mimic the face paintings of Stadium Football Fans.

Patrice Farner of Movie Work Now Casting provided the "Sofa League of Heroes Wives Club" to play Brando's and the other band members wives. Michelle Rodriguez, Mary Kate Goodrich, Bridget McElroy and Elizabeth Garden made the wives club scenes which both open and close the music video hilarious, sexy and fun!

Cameron Carpenter of Three Oceans Entertainment was called into the project to film the behind the scenes portions of the video which include never before seen footage of the making of the video, bloopers, interviews with Robert Reid the director, John Mahoney Producer of RavenPheat and live interviews with Brando and the members of the band during the shooting of the Music Video.
