Social Distortion

I have been asked before who my favorite artist has been to photograph. I have always had to think and wasn’t sure. Now I can say thus far it is Social Distortion. Whether it was from the sold out crowd’s excitement behind me or the bands enthusiasm in front of me, it was a rush!! They put on a great show!! In Cleveland they sold out the House of Blues two nights in a row. After a couple of decades they are still going strong!! I love some if the shots I got that night!!

Lindi Ortega

Red boots, red lipstick, guitar, good looks, and a voice to match!  Lindi came out opening for a legend punk rock band Social Distortion at the House of Blues and held her own!  Her catchy lyrics, fun music, confidence, beauty, and talent held the crowds attention from the second she walked out on the stage.  Whether it was to watch her, or want to be her, it was hard to take your eyes off of her!  My favorite of the night was her song “bang bang” and her cover of a Johnny Cash song that made the crowd go nuts!!

Sheryl Crow

I was so excited to see Sheryl Crow.  I have loved her and every album since I can remember!! She is so cute, beautiful, sexy, confident on stage.  She is so talented with her guitar and voice!!  She was playing songs from one of my favorite albums, everything old and new!!  She is really something to see live!!  Such talent and she has come so far, yet she has been amazing all along!!  She is one of the most beautifully, talented female singers that I can think of!!  Her voice, and lyrics are touching yet fun and soulful.  Her stage presence is what you would picture in your head when you listen to one of her albums!  It was a great show!!   Probably one of my favorites!  ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

O.A.R.

LOVED seeing this band live!!  I am not a huge concert goer but I would love to go and see them again!!  They have such a great stage presence!  Their music makes you want to get up and dance!!  All of the musicians and the singers blend so well together and make for a really amazing live show!!  Their songs are fun, energetic, and they put on a great performance!  Songs I remember from ten years ago to new songs!!  ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

Los Lonely Boys

Los Lonely Boys opened for O.A.R and Sheryl Crow at Kent State University’s stadium.  They were great live!!  Some bands sound great live and some don’t… this is one that you should really see live!!  Not only do they sound amazing but you can tell that they are really into their music, performance, and enjoy what they do!!  ImageImageImageImageImageImage
