I also stopped by the studios of Robin Rios, Corinna Button, Yva Neal, Brigitte Wolf, and Diana Leviton Gondek. A few others too. I paid more attention to the art than taking photos . . . and that is easy to do here.
Next stop, Reggies Music Joint. I have photographed at Reggies before. So I know how hard it is to get a photo out of the red lighting they use. The following photos were taken to offer the best image possible. Again, as usual, all the photos in this blog are "as shot, in camera" without additional alteration.
First up is Mikey Classic. I came in when Mikey was playing and caught the end of his show. I first met Mikey at The Abbey when I went to photograph Lou Shields. Then recently I was able to photograph him at the Brauer House in Lombard. Here are a few photos of him tonight at Reggies.
Last up The Hangdog Hearts. I first met Austin at Reggies (solo), again when I went to photograph Lou Shields. I later went to a CD release party he had outside Indianapolis. Now, I watched him with a few more musicians. When alone, Austin is a ball of fire on stage. Very vocal, musical, a gentlemen's gentlemen of music. With his other band members, Austin shares the stage with them to allow each to shine. Here are some photos . . .
