Sunshine is the first single from the B.A.T.S. Debut Album Coming in Summer 2022 . Shot on Boulder Island by Gene Greenwood, it shows the band playing live at a flotilla party. We used the occasion to make a video for the song: Sunshine, which we also played later during the party, even as storm clouds came up from behind the island. Despite choppy waters and looming dark clouds, towards the end, the music and party prevailed with a good turn-out of yachts, canoes and kayaks!
