30db, Bo Carper & Friends at the Great American Music Hall

I am lucky that I generally get to cover the bands I want to cover for Examiner.com, and as such, it is difficult for this ever to feel like a job. And I am not saying that even on the rare occasions when my editor sends me to cover a band I’ve never heard of and would normally never listen to, I have a terrible time and it feels like a chore and I hate photography. To me, it may not be a band I’d listen to of my own volition, but it is an opportunity to get to know a style of music, along with its fans, and discover what they think is so great about it. On May 20th, I made my way to the Great American Music Hall to cover a pair of bluegrass bands, Bo Carper & Friends and headliner 30db.

The fans I met were fantastic–an extremely easygoing, laid back bunch who were more than happy to stand next to a photographer (you’d be surprised at how frequently this is not the case…but that is a story for another day). The bands were both highly entertaining and featured some mind-blowing guitar work. And the lighting was so great at GAMH that I turned down my ISO and, in most cases, did not have to edit the photos beyond conversion from RAW to JPEG. Enjoy!
