In 1977, I went to a concert at the Auditorium Theater in Chicago and photographed Muddy Waters and Johnny Winter. The next […]

Tedeschi Trucks Band in Chicago

August 25, 2011 Chicago Theatre I had not received a copy of the new record yet, nor had I heard a song off of it.  Sometimes, that is the best way to see a show – when you don’t know what is coming next. I am familiar with  Susan’s and Derek’s work separately so I […]

Yesterday I got a chance to interview Shure Endorser Mike Posner in one of the prayer rooms in the Foundation Room of the House of Blues in Chicago. If you have never been, upon entering the room it feels like your transported somewhere Zen in Asia. The atmosphere is very tranquil and the attention to detail in the decorations […]

Ozomatli @ House of Blues (Chicago)

The first time I ever heard Ozomatli was in 1998. I was sick in bed with a migraine. My migraines, when I get them, tend to be pretty severe. So painful that I have to literally lock myself in a dark room and shut out all outside noise. For some reason, that day, the TV in […]
