Top Local Artist Moments of 2013: Number 2

2. Mike Edel (feat. Vince Vaccaro on harmonica) at Lucky Bar- Come Pick Me Up (Ryan Adams cover) (March 2, 2013)

This is one of those moments I shot where while looking at the LCD screen through my viewfinder I just had chills seeing and hearing what was happening in front of me. From a technical standpoint, I had just purchased a $1200 lens for my SLR in preparation for a project that ended up being my #1 moment of the year. This Mike Edel concert at Lucky Bar was the night before and was my first opportunity to see what the lens could do. It’s one of those rare combinations of a performance where the sound was spot on, the lighting was just right, and a surprise guest (Vince Vaccaro) was on stage. I strive to capture moments like this. Moments that make people wish they were there. And I think this is one of those moments.
