The house was packed. I was expecting nothing less. The entire area was hopping, and the place to be was at Harry's of Arlington Heights watching Whiskey Tango rock it out.
I arrived a little late, and the band was already at stride right out of the gate. A large crowd was there to enjoy the music, the band, and the marvelous Nancy Fisher who is the lead singer. I am giving Nancy some early credit here because she inspired my photography this night.
I know only one member of the band - Tom Coll. We recently met during a business event, got to talking, and found there was a connection beyond just work, which is the band, Whiskey Tango which he plays in, and my photography. So I was given the invitation to come photograph.
Tom only planned to play one set this evening, and to allow his guest backup to play the remaining. So you will not see Tom throughout this blog. Just the beginning.
For you new comers, and I expect some, you can click on the photo to enlarge it, then click on the enlarged photo to index through. With that, let me introduce you to Whiskey Tango . . .
I planned to stay in Arlington Heights after the show, knowing it would be a long drive back home. However, I was so wound up with Whiskey Tango's performance, it took me 2 hours to get to sleep, and it is only an hour drive back home. I like music, plain and simple, and Whiskey Tango is moving up the chart (okay, my chart - why not make it yours) of a fun rock band to rock out with.
This is a fun group of people, who happen to be band members, that call themselves Whiskey Tango. I cannot wait to go back and photograph some more. Thanks to the band, everyone at Harry's had the most enjoyable evening. (They did not want to leave! Especially me!!!!)
Thank you Tom for the opportunity to photograph. I hope you will invite me back to do it again.
