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...

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...

My Top 10 Photos of the Year by Reina Peli

Hi there!  I wanted to take a minute and reflect my year with you.  For those of you who don’t know me, I am the Rock for Life Concert Series photographer and for the past 6 years I have been to just about every event that they host in the little town of Iselin PA.  That’s pretty much where my wings spread and I grew into who I am today.  I care about what I...

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...

Rock for Life Presents: The Jamaroo 2019 a Gigaroo Redo

So, if your buddy said to you, “We’re gonna hold an event where we post a public set list of songs and open it up to all musicians and let them randomly jump on stage and take the place of a member of the band.” You’d probably say he’s totally nuts and wish him luck on that madness!  Well I said that to my guys and they said “Well alrighty then, let’s go!!!!”  So that’s...
