Pittsburgh Post Grunge Show at Squirrel Hill Sports Bar

I made a return trip to Squirrel Hill Sports Bar for another round of bands and photos. A mere 3 months ago, I had this to say about the venue, “There are a few more things needed to complete the transformation, but all-in-all the new stage at the Squirrel Hill Sports Bar will be a great addition to the music scene!” I walked into the venue and was immediately impressed. Barry and company had added...

Sahayra with Special Guest Brad Abbott at Brandy’s Basement

I made my first trip to Brandy’s Basement to check out Sahayra and Brad Abbott. Between both acts it was a nice mix of 70’s, 80’s, & 90’s covers. Both acts also mixed in their originals. I found myself singing along and clicking away on the shutter button. Brandy’s offers great sound, lights, and atmosphere to scene! I would love to shoot some more bands there given the chance. I didn’t have a chance to...

Barry took that room and turned it into a nice little venue for our local scene. It comes with its...

Right Turn Clyde at Steamworks Creative 11-5-21

Another photoshoot, another new to me venue. This time, I was checking Facebook after work when I saw a request to cover a show the same night because a photographer had to drop off at the last minute. I saw that the show was happening at Steamworks Creative, a venue that I had on my bucket list. So I looked at the time and had about 2 hours until show time, Next, I checked the...
