Blues Rock, Rock, Classic Rock

Definitely Attend If You Indulge In:
Joe Walsh, Santana, ZZ Top, Rory Gallagher, Cactus, Humble Pie


“A blues-rock guitarist who draws his inspiration from Elmore James, Hound Dog Taylor, and Chuck Berry, George Thorogood never earned much respect from blues purists, but he became a popular favorite in the early ’80s through repeated exposure on FM radio and the arena rock circuit. Thorogood’s music was always loud, simple, and direct — his riffs and licks were taken straight out of ’50s Chicago blues and rock & roll — but his formulaic approach helped him gain a rather large audience in the ’80s, when his albums regularly went gold.”

“A classically trained upright bassist who won several jazz scholarships and competitions, Mike became one of the most original and in-demand upright bass players in the 90’s progressive jazz scene. At the peak of his powers, Mike was developing and utilizing techniques that were previously thought impossible on the upright bass. Often getting hired as a one-man-rhythm-section, he would function as a bassist, drummer, and entire mini orchestra simultaneously.”

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!
