Madonna Concert Shoot

Madonna Concert Shoot

I remember when Madonna first made it big back in the 80’s and when she stared with “Wayne and Garth” during one of the better SNL skits, but I had never seen her in concert. Last night I got to see Madonna live (for 3 songs) and more importantly I...

Summer in San Diego. The weather is great, the beach is packed, the horses are running at Del Mar, and Steel Pulse will be in concert at least once. It is always a pleasure to photograph Steel Pulse for a variety of reasons: they were one of the first bands that...

91X-Fest 2015

An Evening with Bruce Hornsby

An Evening with Bruce Hornsby

Bruce Hornsby can sit down at a piano and capture the whole room with just a few notes. It’s an amazing thing to see… and hear. Last night Bruce sat down at his piano at the Balboa Theatre and treated the audience to a variety of tunes and it was amazing....
Leftover Salmon with Bill Payne

Leftover Salmon with Bill Payne

Back in 1969 Lowell George and Bill Payne formed Little Feat, a band whose music I have loved ever since first hearing it as a teenager. Two years ago I got to meet Bill Payne when he came to the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach with Dennis McNally for a night of music...
Alan Jackson – Concert Shoots
