Fuse Rock Band

This past Friday I was asked to shoot my second show of the season.  I love that things are opening back up and music is everywhere.   So I made the trip to the Ebensburg Bikefest to cover the Fuse rock band. The Bikefest was at the fairgrounds and since I wasn’t riding a bike I had to park outside the fairgrounds.  But the folks at the gate gave me a ride to the “stage”, a...

Sam

Today was the first show that I have been able to shoot in over a year and it felt “slamming” even in the heat to be running all around the stage, talking to musicians and standing in front of speakers trying to capture some great angles.  I’m glad to see that the music scene is opening back up.  I am thankful that Slam Band and Sam, a group you may recall from before, asked me...

Brimstone Coven, Book of Wyrms, and Shi Rain Doom onto Howler’s!

Pittsburgh has apparently become another home to Martin’s Ferry, Ohio’s deft doom-rocking power trio Brimstone Coven. This past Saturday night was yet another successful stand for these groovy, Mephistophelean mischief makers of melody. Humorous stage banter between polymath bassist Andrew D’Cagna and guitar hitman Corey Roth, their music gluing Black to Blue playfully, like delinquents papering suburban homes. Songs such as “Earth and Ocean,” new, unrecorded song “The Inferno,” back catalogue classics “The Grave” and...

Queensrÿche Light Up The Roxian Theater On Valentine’s Day

On this bitter and chilly lover’s holiday evening, fans turned out respectably for an eclectic night of heavy music in what is a promising old-yet-new McKees Rocks concert hall, the current owners of The Roxian Theater apparently sparing no dollars in making it a truly special place for the live experience to happen once again. Tough-guy New Yorkers Eve To Adam got things started with a bruising session of groovy, grungy, Godsmacked hard rock, the...

Heartsick Returns to Pittsburgh

The ground was shaking in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on the night on January 11th at Cattivo. Twist of Fate Productions rang in the new year with one banger of a show that surely marks one of the best line-ups the company has put together in its short but prolific existence. To be point blank, if you missed this show, you missed something magical. Obviously it’s winter (despite the lack of snow and being handed copious amounts...

Thunderstruck: America’s AC/DC Tribute Rocks The Crafthouse

ThunderStruck America’s AC/DC Tribute – Neutral Loss – Tommy Magik and the Wonderfulls take over The Crafthouse with a SOLD OUT crowd.  From elbows to shoulders, butts to backs, weaving your way through the crowd was a hard task to accomplish!  I actually got stuck behind the stage but you’ll hear no complaints from me.  I had a clear view of the action on stage and action it was!  Thunderstruck rips the stage to pieces....

Lez Zeppelin w/ Storm Dragon at Jergels

This past Saturday was a double dose of great music. I went to Jergels in Pittsburgh to photograph the well known Lez Zeppelin band. I had not looked at the lineup before I arrived so wasn’t aware they had an opener. I’ve checked out a lot of bands in the Pittsburgh area but had not heard of Storm Dragon before. The band did not know that I was coming to the show and as soon...
