Instagram :: August 2011

Stories of peat monsters, construction, travel and music, August was a slow month for me on Instagram. My photography business has been picking up and I’m working with a real camera way more than I’m using the one in my iPhone for leisurely snapping. Kinda bummed about the lack of an IG gallery this month, but happy that the reason those little square crop images are missing from my life recently is an exciting one. It’s been years in the making, and something that I’m very proud of.

The Ponticellos at 142 Throckmorton Theatre

Cello, jazz and rock, oh my! The Ponticellos are all that and more. It was a joy to attend their latest concert at 142 Throckmorton Theatre in Mill Valley, CA.

You may recognize cellist Rebecca Roudman from some of my earlier galleries of Whitney Nichole. Rebecca has been joining Whitney on stage for over a year now, and it was great to get out and see her perform in her new Ponticellos outfit. All of the members of the group are world class, classically trained musicians, and if you get the chance to catch one of their upcoming performances, I highly suggest it. You’ll be entertained and amazed at the breadth of repertoire from the group. Countless guests join them on stage to perform original arrangements of popular tunes.

An amazingly diverse group, The Ponticellos are all current or past members of world class orchestras, and have traveled the world sharing their music. Check out more of The Ponticellos at http://theponticellos.com/.

KYRO, Kaitlin McGaw, Whitney Nichole, and Liz Ryder at Red Devil Lounge

When you think Red Devil Lounge, you probably think of loud up and coming rock groups blaring strong chords and screaming voices out of the place. A change of pace for us at RDL, this night was set to include all female singer-songwriter fronted groups in a much more laid back tables and chairs atmosphere. We got treated to the musical wares of KYRO, fronted by Lindy Lafontaine, as well as performances by Kaitlin McGaw, Whitney Nichole and Liz Ryder.

Beautiful sets ladies. A great laid back night in the lounge. You all tell great stories through your tunes.
