It is always such a joy as a musician to play at a venue that has great sound, great accommodations, and a great staff. House of Blues Dallas is by far one of the top 2 concert venue in Dallas, TX. The band I play in, Sleeperstar, played a show there last week accompanied by 3 amazing other bands, Abraham, Jillian Edwards, and Stars Go Dim. I sometimes photo at these shows, sometimes not. This show was a sometimes. I found myself following Jillian around during her warm up in the stairwell with her band mate, Kelsy, because they are pretty much amazing and I am drawn to wherever their music is being played....truly amazing. I really enjoy photoing live concerts and have been extremely inspired lately by my friend Andrew Shepherd. He is pretty much the best live performance photographer I have ever seen (among other styles)...no lie. Please don't look at his live photos first and then mine....it's not fair to me.
