Davina and the Vagabonds...

Davina and the Vagabonds played at Wilebski's Blues Saloon last Friday, 01-21-11. I met Kim and her daughter, Sharee, there. This was Sharee's first time to see Davina!

Davina and the Vagabonds have a new CD, Black Cloud, coming out when? In April :)

Get Out Of Town (GOOT) Fundraiser at the Whiskey Junction...

Last Sunday, 01-23-11, I had a photo shoot with Sena Ehrhardt at my studio. Afterwards I went to the Whiskey Junction for the GOOT fundraiser for the bands going to the International Blues Challenge in Memphis.

I got there late so I didn't see Davina and the Vagabonds play, but I did see them the night before at Wilebski's. I arrive when Mark Williams' band "Good Time Willy" was playing with Boom Boom Steve V and John Franken.

I stayed for a couple hours, but left prior to the end. Sena and her friend, Haley, came to the fund raiser after the shoot. I left before Sena got on stage to sing. I would have probably stayed if she was scheduled to sing but it was an impromptu thing. I learned about it afterwards.

Anyways I didn't get a bunch of shots, but here is what I got.

Boom Boom Steve V
John Franken
Mark Williams
Jeff Ray & Hurricane Harold Tremblay

Sharee Buell

About a week ago Sharee invited me to go to Wilebski's Blues Saloon to listen to her sing since I miss her sing at another location. So last night I met Sharee, her mother, Kim, and her brother, Josh, there. It was open mic night so when Sharee got there she added her name to the list.

During the first break Sharee went up and talked to Tim O'Brien who just got done playing as he was the person who was running open mic this night. Sharee asked him if it would be ok for her to sing A Cappella. She was very happy when he told her yes!

I took a few photos of Sharee while her mother took a video. Sharee actually just planned to sing one song, but the crowd was yelling for one more. She sang a second original song.

Sharee...thank you for inviting me! You were awesome!!

Sena Ehrhardt...

Sneak Preview...

Sunday, 01-23-11, I had a photo shoot with Sena Ehrhardt of the Sena Ehrhardt Band at my studio.

I've photographed Sena a few times before while she has been on stage. In the past, one of my photos was used by Rochester Women magazine for their cover along with a couple other photos to go with an article about Sena. Sena is a very photogenic lady.

I offered to photograph Sena at my studio around the end of November after seeing some other fashion photos of her that she posted on her Facebook wall. Due to her being a very busy lady working, going to school, playing in her band and practicing new songs for a new CD we finally settled on this date.

I'm still working on the photos, but I thought I would post a couple for now.

I want to say a big "Thank You" to Sena. Thank You!

Thank you Jenni...

Grady Champion

I made it down to Wilebski's Blues Saloon last night to see Grady Champion. Grandy was last years International Blue Challenge winner in Memphis, TN.

Grandy likes to walk around in the crowd while singing and playing harp. You have to keep an eye on him otherwise you will lose him until he pops back up on stage.

Kim kicking my....

not really! These are some images I took of Kim while we were waiting for Ross William Perry to begin playing on New Years Day. I missed some shots of Kim because I needed to put down my cue, grab my camera and by that time Kim was done with her shot. She wasn't waiting for me. I think that was another part of her strategy to keep me off balance and not thinking about my game... :)...sounds good anyways.

Here is the original post about the evening.

Don't stand to the right of Kim when she "breaks"!
Oh,my...this one gave me time to grab my camera!

Tessiah Ebenta Ben

I had a photo shoot with Tessiah Ebenta Ben on Friday, 01-07-11. I had a cancellation the day before so I put out a casting call on Model Mayhem when I got to the studio to set up for the scheduled shoot. Although Tessiah filled in at the last minute I definitely would photograph her again. She told me she would like to come back to do some crazy stuff...

Thank you Tessiah!! It was a fun photo shoot. me at anytime and we’ll schedule another shoot.

Tessiah told me she has done some runway shows, but hadn’t been in front of the camera for any photo shoots.

Oh, today...01-09-11, is Tessiah’s birthday. Happy Birthday!!!!
