Our final Rooftop Concert of 2014 was perfect. Oh, sure, there were some hitches along the way and leading up to the show things didn’t go quite as planned. But by 7pm when Cjane and I walked on stage to make a few announcements and thank some sponsors, it couldn’t have been more perfect. Great weather, massive crowd turnout, and the best bands.

Here’s what Friday night looked like, with The Blue Aces, Fictionist, and Neon Trees.

Here’s Bianca and Joseph Merkley, photographed in their Bronx neighborhood.

Bianca is a true artist. She’s a singer and songwriter and don’t stand up while listening to her sing, because you’ll hear that voice, your knees will buckle and you may hit your head on the coffee table as you stumble to the ground. Her songs, her voice, really pack a punch.  Bianca was just in Utah recording new music at June Audio. I can’t wait to hear the new songs.

 

These pictures were taken near their home in the Bronx, New York, in June 2014. Interested in being photographed in New York City? I’ll be back in September and will have opening for only 4 portrait sessions while I’m there. September 22, 23, or 24. Email me and I’ll give you all the details. Now, every time I go to New York and do some portrait sessions, the spots always fill up. So don’t wait another minute. Let me know if you’re interested and we’ll line something up.

Rooftop Concert Series

by justin on November 13, 2013

in Music, Rooftop Concert

Well, last month (October) we had our final Rooftop Concert of the season. It’s been a great year and Courtney, Sarah and I are already talking about next year.

It was chilly on the day of the last show, so we moved inside to the Provo Marriott Ballroom. The place was packed (and warm). The three bands we had we so great and it was a perfect way to close out the season.

Three bands – Here’s the warm-up band, The National Parks. I just can’t say enough about how great these guys are. Do yourself a favor and get their CD.

Rooftop Concert – July 2013

by justin on July 8, 2013

in Music, Rooftop Concert

There was a slight hitch in the get-along on Friday for the Rooftop Concert. We still had it, just not on the roof.

After a giant down-pour and the very likely possibility of more rain, we scrambled for the best way to salvage the show. It was determined that we’d move it to Velour, a small club that holds 300 people. The band agreed to play two shows, back to back, in an effort to accommodate as many people as possible.

So, we did the best we could, and in the end, everyone that saw the show had a fantastic time. It went a little something like this:

Thanks to Velour for saving the day. And thanks to Paul Jacobsen for putting this group of musicians together.

Scheduled to open the show was Brady Parks band, The National Parks. We’re sorry we had to bump him from the lineup when we moved to Velour, but we’ll fit him in on the October show.

This is the very talented composer, Andrew Maxfield. He’s currently finishing up a very cool project–it’s a CD of original compositions, mixed with poems written and read by Wendell Berry. I photographed Andrew at his house in Provo, Utah.

Fun musical side-notes: Andrew’s brother is the lead singer of Fictionist and he’s married to the cello player, Liz Davis Maxfield.

This was probably our biggest Rooftop Concert this year. And by biggest, I mean, the most amount people that showed up. We start with aisles so people can get around. Friday, that was futile. The place was packed. 3,500 people or more. Last year we had people at the entrances with counters so we could quantify the attendance. We didn’t do it this year. We just guess based on how much that parking deck starts to shake when the music hits you and you can’t help but dance and move about.

At each Rooftop Concert, we have a warm-up, a opening act, and the headliner. On Friday, Jen Blossil opened the show.

The fellows from The Moth and the Flame came to the studio this week to be photographed. They are playing this Friday at the Rooftop Concert Series along with Desert Noises. I like what someone said on Twitter today. “If you’re in Provo on Friday night and not at the Rooftop Concert then you’re doing it wrong.”

Here’s a handy guide for this Friday’s concert, thanks to the lovely Cjane Kendrick who stopped by to interview the band. I like it when she’s around.

And now, meet Mark, Nate, Brandon: The Moth and the Flame.
