I sit here editing photos as the Bruins are in their 2nd overtime, I think they need Rene. Tonight I shot the band Pieces of Eight as they entertained the Hero’s Cup Hockey Charity in Marlboro. Rene Rancourt sang the national anthem, then joined the band for some photos.

thedailypic•Yr8•134/365•2691•Ellis & Paul

Amped Up Promotions brought Ellis Paul back to Milford, I have seen and photographed him many times… tonight was the best. My son Dan played a couple songs to open the night. Sheez Late did an awesome set then Ellis took the night, playing a great mix of new and old songs celebrating 25 years on the road. Last song, 3000 miles, he called Dan back up to the front and did a duet. What a night, video proof below along with an 8 year old photo from when Dan first met Ellis – a duo is born.

Dan had his first time out in public with his new guitar. First time out playing and singing in front of an audience. He was one of the many talented kids that played at the Medway High School Coffee House. They all did great. Dan had two songs, Basket Case by Green Day and Straight to Hell by Drivin’ & Cryin’. He looked like a pro. Awesome job Dan!

yr8%e2%80%a2012-365%e2%80%a22569%e2%80%a2bad-marriage-downstairs

Last night I shot Bad Marriage Downstairs at the Middle East in Cambridge. Pure Rock and Roll awesomeness. From their page:

Boston’s Bad Marriage comes out of the gate swinging their hard rock hammer with both fists, laying down their blistering boogie with heavily swung rhythms. Their repertoire digs deep with influences including AC/DC, Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith. Indulging their collective thirst for tone and overdriven guitars, Bad Marriage pack their material with British blues-infused hard rock riffs and gutsy, soaring melodies. Together with frontman and resident wordsmith JonnyP and his over-the-top, self aggrandizing lyrics, they’ve crafted a collection of egotistical hip-shakers including “Knock 3 More Times”, “Miss Outrageous” and “Young Love”.

Yr7•341-366•2532•Party of the Year

Yesterday was the party of the year, the 4th annual Labor Day Bash at The Tradesman in Milford Ma. This is Ray Auger and I on the stage with a few of our friends – yes they are friends telling us we are number one! Ray is the mastermind behind this event, so why not let him speak… the following is from him.  If you want to see ALL the photos check out the set on my facebook page here.

tr/trp

Wow what a night. 800+ people (good chance there was a few more!)… 9 bands… delicious food from Anzios Brick Oven Pizza, Wicked Twisted Pretzels and Larry Joes New England Fire Pit… massages from Kelsey Rutkowski… incredible music by Josh Briggs & Friends, Jambag, SOULidarity, Shanna Jackman and Not in Kansas, Bad Marriage, Tailgates Down Band, Charity Case, The Abe Froman Project and Tigerlily… just an incredible lineup of local music!

We raised money for Cory’s Crusaders, Inc. and Milford Ma. Youth Football and Cheer this year through a raffle and all the bands donating their fees back to the cause. Each organization will be receiving about $1500 each!

Thanks so much to Rob DeDominic for putting it all on the line year after year, making it possible for us to throw this party. I appreciate his dedication and willingness to let us do crazy shit at his bar. Now show him your support by visiting The Tradesman again soon AND Valley Pub… his other establishment in Whitinsville. Thanks to Tim Rice of timrice/photo for making all look so good! It’s no doubt that this thing gets bigger and bigger every year because he captures the fun for all to see so perfectly. Thanks to Christopher Rando for amazing sound, stage and lighting. You made us sound and look like rock stars my friend. Thanks to William James for managing the stage all day. He kept us all in check while rocking a set of his own with Charity Case. Thanks to Ed Barry for proving the community drum kit, Todd Boisvert for the bass rig and Gordon Swanson of UpFront Guitars for the rest of the backline. Thanks to the entire staff of The Tradesman and Valley Pub and all the volunteers who worked their asses off all day. Thanks to Jay Pillarella and Dawn Bailey (That Smarts by Dawn) for the cool commemorative t-shirts. Thanks to Milford Police Department and fire departments for doing an outstanding job managing the crowds and supporting the party in general. Same to the Town of Milford, especially our selectmen who approved the party. Great to see you at the show Will Kingkade! You too Scott Harrison. I love walking through the crowd and seeing town officials and school committee members like Joey Callery and off duty police officers and firefighters. This event has really turned into a great community celebration.

On a more personal level thanks to the two great bands I am honored to be a part of… Tailgates Down, with Meghan Haskins, Israel Saldana, Matt Kudirka, Jamie Nicholson, Lorraine D’Angelo Lee and our talented fill in for the show Jay Tullio and The Abe Froman Project with Justin Redden, Todd Boisvert, Tim Corrigan, Johnny Keys and Todd Boisvert. You guys make performing so fun! Thanks to Molly for putting up with me with all the planning and day of shenanigans and to some great friends for your consistent support… Dexter Avery Carcione, Jay Pillarella, Dawn Bailey, Amber K. Redden, Justin, Barbara Bain Rice, Tim and Kathleen Ann and Chris Manoogian.

Hope you go this far because I really want to thank all of YOU! The crazy bastids who partied with us all day! See you all at the social on Monday!

There’s probably more… I’ll stew over it for a bit and hope I didn’t forget anyone. So many great people to thank!

Ray

Yr7•331-366•2522•Through A Door

“And Through A Door… What did I see?” I photographed Toad the Wet Sprocket today at Indian Ranch in Webster Ma. One of my all time favorite bands, they had a huge influence on my taste in music in the 90’s, even indirectly led to a job at Newbury Comics. Rusted Root took the stage first, it was an awesome show by both bands. Today was actually the  25th anniversary of the release of TTWS’s Fear, an album that was in my car and played start to finish many times. I saw them a few times in the 90’s in small clubs, today I had a photo pass to shoot the first 3 songs in front of the stage. The set list was a great mix of old with some newer songs. The nod to the Pale album and 80’s with Come Back Down proved the place was full with loyal fans as they sang along was my favorite moment. Indian Ranch is the perfect place to see a summer show. Thanks Toad for still sharing your music.

I spent the day photographing a charity event for Carlie. Carlie is a local High School student, a talented musician/singer and is currently being treated for Ewings Sarcoma, a very rare and aggressive bone cancer usually found in children and young adults.

Raffles, Auction and entertainment by : Whiskey Church, Fringe Benefits, The Lynx, The Knuckleheads and Carlie herself. Thank you to all who came out, over $6K was raised, all the money will be used to support Carlie and her family during this time and assist with fulfilling her dream of having a music studio in her house. If you would like to contribute there is still a chance, feel free to contact me for more info.
