Back in August if 2013 I was working at the Valley View Casino Center photographing the Taylor Swift show. Before the show started there was a young performer doing a set in the private Player Club lounge. His name was Cody Lovaas and that was the first time I saw him play. This past weekend, I was shooting Ziggy Marley at the North Park Theatre and Cody and his band were the opening act. What a difference a year makes.
This time around Cody walked around the stage like he owned it. The band was tight and they all seemed really comfortable performing for the sold out crowd.
