Styx – Casino Ballroom, Hampton Beach, New Hampshire, October 21st, 2016

Growing up in the 70s and 80s, I was lucky enough to grow up with some of the best bands and music of my lifetime. Many of those bands have given up the ghost or might continue on but without the same sound. Styx, however, is not one of them. Yes, like most of the bands from those days who are still playing today, you will find only two... Read more →

Make America Rock Again – State Theatre, Portland, Maine, September 18, 2016

Walking up to the State Theatre I noticed the lack of crowd that I was used to seeing wrapped around the building, waiting to get in, but then again there were two other shows going on this night as well, and I am sure that contributed to the lower ticket sales. With that said, I was happy to see the floor fill up rather nicely, and those who... Read more →

The Temperance Movement – The House of Music, Portland, Maine, September 17th, 2016

I said it before and I’ll say it again - there is nothing like going to a show with absolutely no expectations and being blown away. It is common knowledge that if you are going to see someone like ZZ Top or The Stones that you are going to see a great show. You know the band, you know the music, and you have heard from a million people how... Read more →

ZZ Top – Jonny Two Bags, Maine State Pier, Portland, Maine, September 4th, 2016

Way back in the day, when the world was black and white, and I was only 15, my mother, after a great deal of beggin on my part, finally allowed me to attend my first concert.  This woman was tough.  KISS in Augusta in 1975, “Mom PLEASE???!!!!” “No.” “But Mom, it’s UFO!” Again in 1975. “No.” “Cheap Trick?” “Again,...

KIX – MASS, Wally’s Pub, Hampton Beach, New Hampshire, August 28th, 2016

Brian Forsythe, KIX’s guitarist, had told me that their sound check was at 4:30 p.m., and I was hoping to get there early and maybe we could grab lunch and catch up. Brian and I have been friends since 1985 when I thumbed down to Boston in the pouring rain to see them play on the Midnight Dynamite tour. I forgot that it was August, A... Read more →

Sari Schorr – The Brickhouse, Scarborough, Maine, August 21st, 2016

The end of a beautiful thing… The Brickhouse is exactly as it reads - a Brick House, nestled in a patch of woods in Scarborough, just far enough off the beaten path to keep the noise complaints to a minimum yet close enough to make the evening commute a cakewalk. The Brickhouse is actually home to Paul and Cheryl Williams, and for five... Read more →

KISS – Freedom to Rock Tour – Cross Insurance Arena, Portland, Maine, September 4th, 2016

I married a hardcore KISS fan, a man who judges all rock concerts by the fun, fire, and spectacle that is a KISS concert. He has been worshipping at the God of Thunder altar since 1977, and has managed to see the band seven times over the years. While seven KISS concerts is far, very far, from record-holder status, he was there for the 1988... Read more →

Goo Goo Dolls & Collective Soul – Maine State Pier, Portland, Maine, August 17, 2016

The day was just about perfect for an outdoor concert - not too hot, not too cold, and not raining like the last show I shot here - and by the way the audience filed in, I wasn’t the only one who noticed the beautiful weather. This was another show with an early start, and as I waited in the que to enter the venue the first band, Tribe... Read more →

Flogging Molly & Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls – Maine State Pier, Portland, Maine, August 26, 2016

The weather was clear as I parked my car and made my way down to the pier but within a half hour of being there storm clouds were threatening. By the time the first act, Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls, came on stage, the rain was upon us, sometimes in a drizzle, sometimes in a steady fall. This was a hard show to shoot as in between each... Read more →
