You ever get so engrossed that you forget to do something? I do when I am at concerts. Instead of taking photographs I find myself zoning out to the music, feeling it in the present and in memories of the past. It happened when photographing Mr. Funnyman - Echoes of Pompeii this evening.
We would go over to a friend’s house to listen to vinyl, in the bedroom, or outside with speakers blasting through the open bedroom window. Many times we listened from the AM radio in/outside a parked car.
The groove, the melody, had you dreaming about the cosmos. Pink Floyd just made sense to us.
Many took this seriously. They could not get enough, so they played instruments to become more connected to the music they loved. They formed bands, like the Andrews brothers and friends of Echoes of Pompeii, a Pink Floyd Tribute band. Do what you love to enjoy, and they love and do it very well. They are so in tune to the vibe, they are the music of Pink Floyd . . .
I can never state this enough. Northwest Indiana is dripping with talent. They need a place to showcase it. Avenue 912 in Griffith is one such venue of many in the region. I am still amazed how nice the staff is, and the facility. I'm calling it home #2.
Thanks to the Andrews brothers for being you and dedicated to the music. Thanks to Avenue 912 for supporting local music!
