Every now and then you get lucky with tickets and performers. A hew yers ago we saw Medals, Martin and Wood at the Sherman Theather in Stroudsburg Pennsylvania and we had tickets in the front row, I have published a number of images and have one show piece entitled Bass Hands.
I took a lot of pictures that night and here are a few more from the set.
We met this guy on the road in California years ago on our way to Las Vegas. He spent his time following different bands around the country and was at a rest stop going to a Moe concert. I always wondered about people who basically spent their lives doing this. Do they work? How to they afford to have this lifestyle? In any case his camper van did not have room for another sticker.

In 1974 I bought my first telephoto lens. It was a Vivitar 135mm lens and actually not very good so later in the year I bought a Nikon 200mm lens. It was good enough however to take this picture of The Grateful Dead at the Pittsburgh Civic Arena in 1973. You can see other concert images on my commercial site by clicking here.
During the Medeski, Martin and Woods Acoustic concert at the Sherman Theater, Chris Woods played three different types of Bass instruments. Here he is playing his well traveled Fender Bass during the concert. You can buy a print of this image on my commercial gallery by clicking here.
