"Sick Puppies Come To Town"

Wow! What a blast I had meeting these wonderful musicians.

The Sick Puppies came to Portland supporting Evanescence who played The Rose Garden November 18.

Although this was the first band I have photographed, my experience shooting theatre helped enormously with the lighting.

I got to interview the band which was enlightening. Brilliant but humble, worldly but young! I remember those days. Then it was time for performing. The band huddled together and after some inspiring words, launched on to the stage with bravado!

The concert was incredible.

Portland concert goers loved the band as well. After the concert, I photographed the fans waiting to have T-shirts and CD's signed. There was an incredible buzz. I spoke with some fans and they said "We came to see Evanescence but LOVE The Sick Puppies!".
