The first time I took notice of Joe Bonamassa was when I saw Eric Clapton’s 2010 Crossroads Fest. Since then Ive had a handful of chances to see him live unfortunately I didnt take advantage. Having seeing him for the first time this past Thursday night quickly revealed my regrets. Joe put in a great show filled with amazing backup musicians including Anton Fig from Late Night with David Letterman and Reese Wynans from Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Double Trouble. I will certainly take pleasure of seeing him again the next time I get the chance. To see full size images, click on the thumbnail; in the next window, click on the image again.

Its been since the early 90’s when I saw both Stu Hamm and Alex Skolnick. The first time I saw Stu was when he was backing Joe Satriani at the Sunrise Theater on the “Flying In A Blue Dream” Tour in Florida. I actually still have the pick from that show. A year or two later, I saw Alex leading Testament in Buffalo. I don’t recall the tour of venue. Heres a small gallery highlighting their performance at the Iridium including Tenor Saxophonist Ofer Assaf.
In the fall of 2016, I was given the honor of being the official photographer for the Native American Music Awards, celebrating their 16th annual ceremony of Native American music.

White Band, Joseph FireCrow, Ed Koban, Shelley MorningSong and Fabian Fontanelle, Annie Humphrey, Sage Bond and Keith Secola.
Here’s a small gallery of Blackfoot feat. Rickey Medlocke. Their new album is incredible and the new line up is filled with amazing talent!
Second time around seeing one of my guitar heroes, this time a more intimate show. I have always been a fan of Eric’s acoustic work and his new album, EJ does not disappoint. Here’s a small gallery from his performance at the Highline Ballroom, here in NYC, October 25, 2016
Here is a small updated musicians gallery mostly taken with my new 70-200mm II USM IS. The Jeff Beck/Buddy Guy photos were taken with Canon’s Powershot SX40 HS. Not bad for a point and shoot.
