420 Boulder

After years of hearing about the festivities that take place at the Norlin Quadrangle, a large grassy field in the heart of campus at CU Boulder, on the 20th of April at 4:20 pm, I decided I needed to check it out. I also understand that playboy named boulder as the #1 Party school in the country, and stated the 420 smoke out was one of the reasons. I joined thousands of students, graduates, grey hairs and teens, and watched as the campus went up in smoke!

String Cheese Incident Winter Carnival 3/12/11 Day 3

For the last day of the String Cheese Incident's Winter Carnival, the costume contest was over. I decided I would set up the studio backstage and photograph some of the performers.
During the show, It felt like a SCI New Years celebration or even a Hornings Hideout event. They had a huge parade through the middle of the crowd, it was a show like no other band could put on! Thanks to Moving Parts Productions, Madison House Presents, and All Phases event group for the amazing show!

Big Head Blues Club

We got a last minute call from Big Head Todd and the Monsters, wondering if we could shoot a multi-cam shoot of a show in Mississippi. We had a gig the day before shooting with Vibram in Boulder, so it was a bit of a "Mission-impossible", but we said of course we can! The vibram shoot had us working the USA Climbing Championships till around 12 midnight. We then rushed home to dump cards and get in a quick sleep for our 6:15am flight the next day.
The show in Mississippi was a tribute to the late great Bluesman, Robert Johnson, called Blues at the Crossroads, and featured the Big Head Blues Club, Big head Todd and the Monsters with David "Honeyboy" Edwards, Hubert Sumlin, Cedric Burnside, and Lightnin' Malcom.
Here is the first song we have finished up, let me know what you think!

Kinetix Yamn and Springdale Quartet at Cervantes 3/26/11

Kinetix Live 3/26/11 at Cervantes, Denver CO
Kinetix had me come down to hang at Cervantes with them for some new photos with their new drummer, Pete Koopmans. It turned into one hell of a night of good music. Indobox got things started but I showed up a little to late to catch them, but I heard they kill it! Springdale Quartet, was next and for me they got the jammy night started right. Yamn took it right to the roof and got everyone in the house moving. They even added some cool effects with the guys drumming smoke rings into the crowd. Then Kinetix came to the stage and let everyone know it was time to rock! Pete fits in great, cant wait to see more! View more of my photos of Kinetix, More Kinetix, and Yamn
