The creative, adventurous California band, Lefroy, returns with the new video, "Mexican Getaway." The song is a call to unwind and escape the cares of the world in an idyllic beach setting and features singer/songwriter Hoyt Hughes, who contributes guest vocals to the track.
This video is about ditching your phones and devices, shutting out the tv, news, and dramas of everyday life and laying back, relaxing on the warm, sunny and beautiful beaches of Mexico. With delicious food and plenty of activities to enjoy such as surfing, scuba diving and fun nights out on the town, this video will have you dreaming of the warmth and good times to be found in this picturesque country where you can relax and forget all your worries - Featuring Hoyt Hughes!
"Hoyt has become a good friend of the band," said Barry Lefroy. "We met him through his manager who connected us with Tom Weir at the studio where we record in Studio City, Los Angeles. Hoyt brought a lot of energy to the music video and we really enjoyed working with him"
"Mexican Getaway" follows Lefroy's acclaimed video reboot of "Knocking On Heaven's Door". The band's live shows are known for their elaborate production that include two drummers, a string section and pyrotechnics, inspired by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
Lefroy's founder, Barry Lefroy, is an accomplished bassist who has toured with many successful bands. His son, Barry II, provides lead vocals and has an extensive songwriting and live performance background. They are joined by Paul Susanka, a multi-instrumentalist and creative visionary, whose unique talents bring Lefroy's imaginations to life.

http://www.lefroyband.com- Barry Lefroy is a well respected Canadian bass player having played with famous bands in the 70’s and a successful business entrepreneur. He is also the mastermind behind the debut song/video/band Lefroy, having first come up with the idea of remaking Bob Dylan's classic, "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" in a way it had never been heard before. Barry had been seeing the extreme unrest in our country and his goal with the project overall was to help bring unity through a video that embraces peace and compassion. He brought these ideas to his son, also named Barry, and his son's close friends, Paul Susanka and Kevan Wallace (audio engineer/drummer). They began working on the project with Barry Sr acting as executive producer, closely collaborating with Paul (directing) to display the vision for the sound they were about to complement. While making the video, Barry realized the song could bring meaning and hope to those diagnosed with diabetes and is passionate about making a contribution to research and finding the ultimate cure.
