This would have been a regular day on the tour for Ana, BUT a few days prior the bands entire Van of equipment was stolen in Chicago. Working hard to gather up new gear and work with what was available- the show must go on! Congrats to Ana for pulling through a really rough week and putting on a great show at the ARK in Ann Arbor. I hope you get your gear back. They can steal your gear, but they cannot steal your fire! All the best to you.
Queen of the stage. A well loved queen of Blues and Rock -Susan Tedeschi cracked a beautiful sincere smile in this shot so I am glad I captured it for posterity. Loved the interplay between Susan and Sharon Jones- so fun!
Dereck Trucks is just a legend already so I decided to make three of him in a photo just for fun to see the subtle changes of expression in his playing and concentration. He is touring with Tedeschi Trucks Band and make sure you stay for the last few songs- you will not be disappointed! I like Dereck's Indian influenced songs- as in India. They are amazing and they really show his mastery of playing.
This is one of my most favorite groups and you will find me singing along to their songs in my car daily at top volume...of course you won't be able to hear me but it's a great stress relief for me, and makes me happy. Catching Afie on film was a challenge due to the baseball hat, but that's ok- his voice, songwriting and playing was really what I was there for.
