10.08.2011 Evening of Rhythm and Blues + Uncle Sugar

What a night Saturday! So much great music, I ended up taking over 800 shots that night and spent the whole weekend going through them!

Rhythm Raiders- After Friday night’s set, Mike Watson invited me out to Montana’s to come shoot an evening of Country Rhythm and Blues at Montana’s Bar and Grille. What a night, the evening started off with The Rhythm Raiders followed by Von Grey, Mike Watson, and Nadirah Shakoor.

Von Grey - these four classically trained sisters blew the stage up! They almost made me ashamed to call myself a musician. Ranging in age from 10-16, each one of them is a trained master of several instruments! I was amazed at the quality of music these girls were producing LIVE!

Nadirah Shakoor and Outside Art - At this point in the night, I still needed to get back to Darwin’s to shoot Uncle Sugar. I stuck around to get a few shots of Nadirah Shakoor and jetted out to make the drive back to Darwin’s.

Uncle Sugar - I made it back just in time for Uncle Sugar’s last set, and what a set! I loved seeing Eddie Tignor on the keyboards, and Ross Pead puts on a helluva show when he’s backed by his band!
