Travel back to 1995, before there was the World Wide Web and streaming. The Rose & Dragon band with Clifford Long, Dusty Rose, and David HB Drake - in a restored video concert.

Clifford Long, Dusty Rose, and David HB Drake performed from 1990 to 2003 in the Milwaukee and Chicago area and as far as Annapolis MD specializing in maritime, shanty, and pub songs from a mythical pub called "The Rose and Dragon".

They performed for many years at  Milwaukee’s Irish Fest, The HMS Bounty, The Wisconsin Maritime Museum, The Door County Maritime Festival, Chicago Navy Pier, The Wisconsin Lake Schooner Project during the building of Wisconsin's Flagship, the schooner S/V Denis Sullivan, and much more.

This video was shot in 1995 in Chicago Illinois. A VHS copy of raw footage was found in 2020.  Information on the original videographers and location have been lost. Any information would be appreciated. The band's name is shown throughout this restoration to hide the video recorder's time code.
