The Dull Blue Lights – Musikfest – Bethlehem, PA – 8/5/18

Returning to Musikfest once again was local Philadelphia basement soul band the Dull Blue Lights.  Performing one of their most exhilarating sets I’ve seen yet at the Musikfest Cafe stage on the south side campus of Musikfest, Dull Blue Lights’ hour and half set featured covers and original material.  The band, now a four piece,… Read More The Dull Blue Lights – Musikfest – Bethlehem, PA – 8/5/18

The Pietasters / Mephiskapheles / The Snails / Hub City Stompers -Theater Of Living Arts – Philadelphia, PA – 10/29/16

A few days before Halloween, Philadelphia was graced with four talented ska, rocksteady, soul bands.  What could be an amazing tour, if ever happened, but we will just have to settle for this skalloween night. https://www.facebook.com/hubcitystompers/# http://www.thesnailsphilly.com/ http://www.mephiskapheles.com/ http://www.thepietasters.com/

Snoop Dogg/Trouble City All-Stars – Musikfest – Bethlehem, PA – 8/15/15

My last show at Musikfest this year, and my first time at the main stage.  I wasn’t prepared for how big the stage was, it was almost like the Electric Factory in Philadelphia.  It did make me start to think about getting a lens with a longer zoom.  I will see how long that takes,… Read More Snoop Dogg/Trouble City All-Stars – Musikfest – Bethlehem, PA – 8/15/15

The Slackers/Mephiskapheles/The West Kensingtons – North Star Bar – Philadelphia, PA – 12/12/14

Last month I photographed Skanksgiving in New Jersey.  A holiday ska show celebrating Thanksgiving.  This month I photographed The Slackers holiday show in Philadelphia.  Even though this show, and tour, didn’t feature a clever name it didn’t stop the three bands from putting on a skaliday show.  Alright, that name was pushing it, I don’t… Read More The Slackers/Mephiskapheles/The West Kensingtons – North Star Bar – Philadelphia, PA – 12/12/14
