A very cool summer day at Stone Garden Vineyards
I had just arrived at the winery and was talking to the
event coordinator when Jessy J walks up to us. After a
pleasant introduction I was charged with escorting her
and her party to the green room. Great timing!
Well, some kind of glitch or unexpected issue always
pops up in concerts and this show was no exception
when the lighting guys failed to show. I offered to bring
in my own concert lighting from my studio and the show
was back on track.
Next I broke out the Cannon for some sound check
shots and got some great ones. I actually enjoy shooting
at sound check more than the show. I get a chance to
capture the artist playing for the music and not the
audience. Its provides special moments people rarely
see and a unique behind the scenes perspective.
Now it was time to pick up my wife, grab some wine and
shoot this gig.
The opener Analysis was great with the highlight being
the young drummer Taylor Burrise. This kid is going
places I guarantee it.
Jessy was up and put on a wonderful performance.
Her strong vocals and a few cover tunes complimented
her smooth jazz chart topping hits.
A fantastic encore and it was time to say goodnight.
