Pete & Kelly LIVE 4/27/13

I like music. I watch American Idol. (I watch dance too, and watch Do You Think You Can Dance.) We are in awe of the talent in these TV shows, which is why we watch. This night, it was proven to me once again that our local talent is even better, as I stayed to watch my friends Pete & Kelly do their acoustic show at Rother's Pub in La Porte, IN. The best duo acoustic music I have ever seen and listened to . . .

Kelly is the lead singer. He stands out as an accomplished singer. I first saw him when he came to Crown Point to see Pete, and sang with The Robots. He has a rock star quality voice and presence. He leaves it on the floor for us, going home empty.

I have known Pete now for over a year. Pete and Kelly have known each other what seems forever. Pete is an excellent lead guitar player, and now a song writer. With these two together (guitar and writing; Pete & Kelly), you get one powerful punch of acoustic music. Do not forget Pete and The Robots . . . that is one electrocution!!!!

Here are some photos of the evening for you to enjoy. La Porte is a pretty cool town. Worth making the drive on a sunny day, and when the sun goes down, kick back with Pete & Kelly at Rother's Pub. As the days get sunny, I plan to do just that . . .










Purposely Exposed This Way









Oh I love music. I love these guys. I love the fact I met Renee Wicinski, or I would not have been pushed back into photography, nor would I have met Pete, or Kelly.

My life has been great so far. Picking up the camera again after 32 years has been a blessing. I have met many artists, made a lot of friends, and have the passion and commitment to photograph and write what I "see", so that you can too.

You can check out Pete & Kelly on their facebook page, Pete & Kelly.

Let us not forget Rother's Pub either; Website , Facebook

The Robots LIVE 4/12/13



Attention all Hippies, check out the psychedelic man . . . (and yes, I am a Hippie . . . as everyone knows this come game time on Sundays).

This was a fun evening of photography. Lots to play with. At the same time, I think it was a challenge to the band. I think all of the light changes played with their minds. It is hard to stay focused in those conditions. However, they did it like the name bands and kicked some robotic butt tonight.

Another cool thing was that I met Bob Sherman's brother, who is an actor, under the name Sherman Howard. He has been in General Hospital, Day of the Dead, Dallas, Miami Vice, Lethal Weapon 2, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Quantum Leap, Seinfeld, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Home Improvement, ER, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Star Trek: Voyager, Charmed, Law & Order . . . and that is the short list.

Because I knew I was going to meet him, I printed my usual collage of photos I found of him (for an autograph), and I printed a couple photos of Bob Sherman that I have taken to give him. He was blown away to get the photos of his brother. Me, I was blown away to have met him and to get his autograph.

Here are some photos for you to enjoy, however, remember that I do not use flash, and I only used software to lighten up some of the photos I took. The colors you see, are what I photographed.















I like this next lighting series with Pete. One photo he looks like Jesus Christ Super Star . . .






Drummers are always buried in the back . . . so I had to barge in to get some photographs (sorry guys for that interruption).




And since I was back there, a reverse photographs of Danny and Pete . . .




What was cool to photograph, were the laser lights. The engineer running them did a nice job of changing things up. At first he was concerned I would not get any good photographs for as fast as they were changing . . . haha . . . Wes does it again . . .
