Paul Henry's Descarga Drum Ensemble 2/23/14


I have been wanting to go to this for a while, catching up with Ed Brann to listen to the rhythm of his drums. I first met Ed when I was photographing NickDanger at Kenwood Tap, in Hammond. He was a cool cat with a rhythm. We kept meeting each time he played with Jerry, to the point I new I had to go see him outside this event. Low and behold, Ed starts holding some events at Paul Henry's Art Gallery in Hammond.

I went this Sunday so I can here this percussion first hand. It was cool. The cultural rhythm makes you want to sit back and enjoy. People were in and out, joining in on the instruments.  Here are some photos of the event.

The Robots LIVE 2/14/14

The Robots were at Jack's in Lansing, IL, both Friday the 14th and Wednesday the 15th. I actually went to both. Was nice to enjoy them in a smoke free environment. This is why I tend to cross the boarder a lot to photograph . . . smoke free.

The Robots played very well Friday. They were not full Robots because they were missing their Bot (Bob Sherman). However, they rocked the place. Lots of people were there. Many have not heard them before. Lots of dancing took place. Lots of psychedelic photos took place. Heavy psychedelic. I have been working on this for a while (photography wise). I had created some effects mechanically as a kid. I am enjoying exploiting, controlling, the camera to give the the images I want. Please note these are all "in camera" with predicted outcome. No editing had been done.

This blog entry will be for both nights. So, you will see Bot Bob later in the set of photos.
