Ben Mudd's Photo I love music. I love photography. I love photography of music. (Perhaps I also love the word "love"). Say hi when you see me and lets talk about either or anything else. And visit my home page for even more photo love.

Concert photos: Ha Ha Tonka, The Spring Standards and Union Tree Review at Off Broadway, Friday, April 22

Friday night at Off Broadway, a close to capacity crowd was treated to a barrage of sights and sounds translated to energy that passed from person to person like the common cold. Union Tree Review started out the night and edged the crowds excitement into the passion of The Spring Standards.
Excitement was at a boiling point when Ha Ha Tonka took the stage. There were certainly no disappointed faces after the double encores and multiple toasts presented by the Springfield rockers who played to the crowd at every turn. And the crowd in return was accepting of anything that was played.

Concert photos: Cameron McGill and What Army, with Audri and Aaron and Everett Thomas, Old Rock House, Friday, April 15

With the sky overcast, the ground damp and a slight chill in the air, the atmosphere in the Old Rock House was appropriately mellow. Starting with the acoustic stylings of locals from across the river, Audri and Aaron followed by Everett Thomas, the mood was set to a low key hush with the intimate but attentive crowd.

With winter making its last gasp outside, Cameron McGill took the stage and continued the mellow vibe for several songs before calling the breadth of his talented backing band on stage and getting down to something a little harder hitting. He certainly enjoys his ability to rip out a lyric from the deepest of locations and I came to appreciate it as well. Despite a late set bout of sickness, he finished with a bit of acoustic crooning that left the crowds’ folkier yearnings satisfied.
