A 2008 Concert Photo Re-View

Before we look ahead to all the great shows True Endeavors will be bringing to us in 2009, maybe we should look back at some photos from 2008.  The gallery below includes an assortment of images from the shows that I was fortunate enough to attend.  From American Music Club to That 1 GuyKT Tunstall to Susan Tedeschi, Buckethead to Lyle Lovett and BRMC to EODM…it was a terrific mix of great music and interesting subjects to shoot. The full galleries for each show can be found via the “Live Concert Photos” link. Have a safe and happy new year!
