Sound Bites And Leftovers

Chris Singh, A Boy Named John

Here’s a few more images from the House of Independents show from a few weeks ago. While Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son as the headliner, the other bands were pretty darn good too.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get much of this band. I was back and forth between backstage and my truck when they went on, and I just didn’t have much time. Very loud, very rockin’ though.

A Boy Named John




That’s Jeff Crespi, an Asbury Park music photo legend, at work in front.




They had a Queens of The Stone Age sound to them. This last shot is similar to the one leading off this post. I got enthralled with the light that was on Chris, with and without the mirror ball effect. I was happy with how my FujiX100T was performing in the low light here.

Their sound grew on me as their set went on. A little Smashing Pumpkins, a little Nirvana, a little Four Non Blondes. Very trippy.

And some leftovers…

The perils of rock ‘n roll decadence (not really, just Zack Sandler chatting before the show.)

Zack Sandler’s saxophone, at rest.

And, on the way out of town, just before picking up 195 West to head home, my last shot of August 2017…
