Well I see that a solution was found for Stephanie's "introduction problems". For those who haven't been to the shows yet, Stephanie introduces the bands each week. She is sort of, well, "vertically challenged" as I am and has a hard time reaching the microphone to announce . Last week I suggested here that she get a little stepstool so she could reach the mic. This week, they handed her the mic and all worked well. Stephanie does such a great job organizing these free weekly concerts as well as all the other members of the BID in Middletown.
X Calibur was the featured band tonight. I have shot them several times and always look forward to seeing them each time. I just love seeing Brian the drummer perform. He is the most animated drummer I have ever seen and a photographer's dream to shoot. I don't know where he gets his energy from!!! Jerry is on keys and well he is just "Jerry" what can I say. A great vocalist and keyboard player but always livens up the stage. When I come near him to shoot, he "hams it up" so well. Loves the camera and loves to play and it shows in his performance on the stage and on camera. The lead guitar was excellent. Sorry i'll have to get his name. Mike and Diane? Well they just blend together so well. Mike plays guitar and sings. Diane is the lead vocalist and adds various percussions as well as some really corny jokes !!! Together they make a solid group that has fun doing what they do and the audience responds in fashion.
They will be playing in August at Kenstock 3, which is a fundraiser for the American Heart Association. More details on that will be coming here on my site.
Hope everyone enjoys the photos and i'll look forward to seeing you next week. The featured band will be "Eight Days of Blues". I've never had the opportunity to shoot them so this will be something i'll enjoy. I have a feeling they will be doing "Blues". Good guess???
Photos can be found at "Concerts/Festival Square"
See you next Friday night
