St.Albert’s own treasure Dan Davidson celebrated the release of his newest record down at Station over the weekend, with Edmonton country rebels in Cadillac Junkies warming up the audience for what was yet to come with their brand of twang and pop. Dan played through much of his catalog for most of the night, while throwing a few cover songs in the mix to really get people singing and dancing on the floor which seemingly lasted all night long for the folks gathered at Station for a night of country comfort music.
PHOTOGRAPHED FOR NORTHLANDS EDMONTON
What a fun way to kick off last weekend! I photographed my first country music show, and had the opportunity to play house-photographer at Rexall Place on Friday February 19th, as the one and only, Brad Paisley, brought the party to Edmonton.
Brad had one of the coolest stages that I have ever had the chance to shoot; enormous video screens backing the stage, playing various clips of people partying and celebrating, including a long cat-walk that stretched into the crowd, giving concert goers a chance to be within reaching distance of Brad as he would strut his stuff from one end of the stage to the other.
As per usual, I had a really great time shooting this gig, and I'm hoping for more opportunities like this to arise so I can continue to expand my genre-horizon, and to smash the goal I have for 2016!
