Across The Board launched "Pick Up and Play" in 2013--a regular webseries dedicated to covering classic and contemporary tunes with off-the-floor live session music videos featuring multi-instrumentalist core cast/musicians Jackie, Andy, Paul, & Parry, with guest musicians including members of local Toronto bands Jane's Party, Mirian Kay Band, members of Trouble and Daughter, Jessica Speziale Band, Brooklyn Doran Band, Marlon Chaplin Band, Emmy Rouge, Crooked House Road and others. A sampling of videos can be found below:
Recent music videos in the series have included "Blow At High Dough" (Tragically Hip), "Space Oddity" (David Bowie, "Ghost Town" (Adam Lambert), "Renegades" (Ambassadors X), "Monkey Tree" (Mother Mother), "The Chain" (Fleetwood Mac), "Lost & Found" (Ellie Goulding) and "Wildest Dreams" (Taylor Swift), and "Mess Is Mine" by Vance Joy.

Now in its fourth season with over 160 videos on the Youtube Channel, Across The Board has a growing online fan base of Youtube subscribers and followers who also support the band through the Patreon.com platform. Filmed by some of Toronto's most talented filmmakers and editors, Kat Webber and Julian Peter, ATB's music videos are a cut above the typical one-shot youtube video. ATB plans to continue this regular webseries in 2017 with covers of current and notable songs, while continuing to collaborate with Canadian musicians to bring session music videos to their growing audience.
