I had the pleasure to see the Cooper-Jones Band this past weekend, and was totally wowed.
This is a local group which rightfully ought to have a wider audience, both because of their component parts and their whole.
Leading the charge on guitar:
…and tearing it up on vocals, Brian J:
At his elbow, also smokin’ the strings and wailing on vocals, Mark S.:
Stroking a stack of keyboards…
Paul R, multi-keyboardist and vocalist:
Any tree stands or falls on the strength of it roots, and in this case the roots run deep – Bob M, a practitioner of Bass-as-Lead, meaning to say that he goes far beyond the minimum necessary to lay down a floor, and paints the walls as well:
…and keeping it all on the clock:
…drummer Greg T kept the train rolling while singing his share of leads:
This is a fine local band which ought be heard by more people, so if you’re in the area, watch for them. I understand they’ll be at the Iron Horse in Northampton on June 7th. I hope to be there!
All of these shots are from Ziggy, my Sigma 50mm lens which I got for macro photography (it lets me get within an inch of my subjects, and is fast,) but now serves me well as an indoor low-light lens.
