Screaminchickenz Amps. Yes, Screaminchickenz Amps !! Birgit has developed her own line of skin care products, and manufactures it herself. Shop local!!!
When Birgirt saw me photographing The Robots one evening, she mentioned a band, The Bergamot out of South Bend, Indiana. She had nothing but praise for this band. A month or so later, another band I made friends with were playing at Martyrs' in Chicago. I later found The Bergamot was headlining that same night. So, it was a no brainer . . . I Had To Go!!!
The Bergamot blue me away. Jillian and Nate are super talented. Everything was uplifting, getting you up on the dance floor. Lyrics are great. Acoustic Great. Jillian's energy, beyond great!
And, I bought some product that night at Martyrs' that had the Bergamot's label on it. I knew who made it . . . Simply Birgit!!!! Nobody had to tell me. I just knew. I bought one of everything . . . CD's, skin care products, and was given a T-shirt. What a cool night, with a lot of cool bands and people.
I received a message from Birgit a few days ago, asking if I would come and take photos of her, her friends along with Jillian and Nate, at the opening of Whole Foods in Mishawaka, Indiana. This was an early morning event. I said yes . . . Yes!
When I arrived at 7:45 AM, Jillian and Nate were there singing their music before the store opened at 9:00 AM. They entertained the crowd that was growing by the minute. Birgit also has product in this Whole Foods store, waiting for the public to buy (and me to photograph).
Here are some photos, starting with photos I took the night before. I hope you enjoy them.
