Aimee Francis @ Brighton Up Bar 14/04/16

One of my favourite artists is Aimee Francis and she is the real deal.  Awesome music and lyrics to match!  Aimee was up from Melbourne to work on a recording and she performed a few gigs while she was here.  I headed to the Brighton Up Bar in Darlinghurst to see her and take a few shots for Amnplify.

Ex-Cassette @ Brighton Up Bar 14/04/16

Having heard that one of my favourite artists, Aimee Francis  was heading to Sydney for gig at the Brighton Up Bar I couldn’t miss the opportunity to head into Darlinghurst to catch up with her.

There were two other acts performing on the night and one of the was Ex-Cassette.  They were fantastic and I keep playing their latest single, Digital Heart on my Ipod, I only wish that they had more music that I could listen too.  Here are a few photos from the night.

James Morrison + Olivia Chindamo + Liam Budge @ Taronga Zoo 20.2.16

I was fortunate to be granted photo access for James Morrison’s Twilight concert at Taronga Zoo.  If you haven’t been to one of these concerts you are missing out on a great night of music and one of the best views in the world – the view of Sydney Harbour!

One thing that I like about photographing live music is the opportunity to hear support acts/performers that I would not normally have the opportunity to hear and they are usually great performers in their own right. This night was no exception as James Morrison was supported by two very talented singers in Olivia Chindamo and Liam Budge.

SEIMS + Acolytes + The Soulenikoes + Surrender the Sun + Angels or Demons @ the Bald Faced Stag 29/01/16

I was asked by a fellow photographer from Melbourne if I would like to photograph Acolyte, a progressive rock band that she knew from her home town while they were visiting Sydney on a quick tour.  I was glad that I agreed to do the shoot for Amnplify as there were 5 bands on the bill and some great music.  The gig was at the Bald Faced Stag in Sydney.  Here are a few of the photos that I took:

So Frenchy So Chic – Sydney 2016

A great afternoon and evening of French Music and cuisine.  Well worth attending when they return in 2017.

The music was very entertaining and the artists were Hindi Zahra, Brigitte (Sylvie Hoarau and Aurelie Saada), Lou Doillon and Soviet Suprem (Erwan Seguillon and Toma Feterman).  I don’t speak french and even though some of the majority of the songs were sung in french I still enjoyed them, good music is good music in any language.

Thanks to Cartell Music and Amnplify for allowing me to shoot the event.

Holly Who @ Frankie’s Pizza 4.10.15

It really was a case of Holly Who? for me when I heard that they were performing on the bill at Frankie’s Pizza last Sunday night but not any more.  Holly Who are a Newcastle band with a very entertaining show and an infectious style of music.  I don’t think that there is anything that they couldn’t perform!  As a photographer I love to shoot a band that enjoys performing so much that it is evident to everyone watching them as it is infectious.  I will definitely be keeping an eye out for future gigs to attend.

The lighting was a challenge so the only option was to process the photos as black & white but I think that it works.

Battle of the Bands – Rock

After photographing all the heats for Macarthur Music on a Mission‘s Battle of the Bands and seeing how much talent there is the Macarthur area I was looking forward to the final.

The final was held at Campbelltown RSL last Friday night and was split into two divisions, three metal bands and three rock bands with winners chosen from each category.

The 3 rock bands that made it through to the final were The Dirty Reeds, Handheld Human and Trash Jacket.  All three bands put on a great performance and the judges had a difficult decision to make.  The winners on the night were The Dirty Reeds.

Melbourne

I headed down to Melbourne recently to attend the Australia v NZ Olympic Qualifier Basketball Match at Rod Laver Arena. As I hadn’t visited Melbourne on a personal trip before I was looking forward to photographing a few new locations.

A trip to Melbourne needs to include a few key locations including St Kilda Pier, Flinders Street, Princes Pier and Brighton Beach Huts.

The Bellrays+Dallas Frasca+Bandintexas @ Newtown Social Club 9.8.15

Heading into Newtown on Sunday night to shoot a gig was quite unusual for me but I was glad that I did as I was fortunate to see 3 great bands.  The lighting wasn’t the best and at times it was a struggle to get good exposures but the venue did have a great atmosphere.

First up on the night was the energetic punk/rock band Bandintexas which is comprised of Kelly Jeanious on vocals, Sophie Bollen on guitar and vocals, Jackie Latimore on bass and Lauren Allison on drums.  I really liked their music and couldn’t resist buying 2 CD’s after their set.  I look forward to catching more gigs in the future.

Next up was Dallas Frasca a Melbourne band that that I had heard a lot of good things about and they lived up to their reputation.  Dallas Frasca is made up of Dallas Frasca on vocals & guitar, Jeff Curran on guitar and Josh Eales on drums.

Dallas loved to get the crowd involved and even sung a song or two sitting with the audience!

It’s getting expensive shooting gigs as I couldn’t resist buying two of their CD’s too!

The headline act were The Bellrays from the USA with Lisa Kekaula on vocals and Robert Vennum on guitar.  For some reason the light wasn’t as good for the headline act and at times the stage was in complete darkness.  This stopped as soon as Lisa Kekaula said a few words to the lighting technician!

By this stage I had run out of cash so I didn’t buy any CD’s but they are worth buying. Great tight band producing awesome sounds!

Battle of the Bands -Heat 4

Heat 4 of Macarthur on a Mission’s Battle of the Bands showcased 4 great bands plus the Guitar World City Arcade Band.

The competitors for the night were Three Strikes, Ready for the Fall, Heart of Mind and 1919.  It’s amazing how much local musical talent there is just looking for venues to perform in.

The judges couldn’t split Three Strikes and Heart of Mind and they were named as joint winners of the heat.

Battle of the Bands – Heat 2

The Bradbury hotel was again the location for Macarthur Music on a Mission’s Battle of the Bands.  There was another good crowd on hand to watch/listen to the battle and raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation at the same time.

There were only three bands performing on the night has there had been a late withdrawal.  The first band to perform were the energetic Liberty Guns from Wollongong that was comprised of Lachlan Shelley on Guitar and Vocals, Steven Gale on Bass and Daniel Eliot on Drums and Vocals.  You can keep up with their gigs by liking their Liberty Gun’s Facebook page.

The next band to perform and the winners for the night were The Dirty Reeds a Punk Rock Pop band from Catherine Fields.  As two members of the band were not available on the night so Alex Reid was joined by Jake Elder on the drums and Adam Reid on the bass. It was the first live gig for Adam Reid and the first time that they had played together so they did extremely well to win on the night. Keep up to date on what is happening with them by liking the Dirty Reeds Facebook Page.

Battle of the Bands – Heat 1

I was asked by a friend,  Andrea Krakovská if I could come along and shoot the Battle of the Bands at the Bradbury Hotel.   Andrea is passionate about music as she is a  member of a band herself and felt that there wasn’t enough live music venues in the Macarthur region.  To try and rectify this she decided to form Macarthur Music on a Mission to create the Battle of the Bands which will be held at The Bradbury Hotel.  Not only is this raising awareness of the need for livemusic venues in the Macarthur Region but all money raised will be used to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The first heat as was a great success and a good crowd was at The Bradbury to see The Last Exposure, The Dark Raven, Handheld Human and Acid Birth.

I think the judges hard a hard decision to make but the eventual winner on the night was Handheld Human.
