Rehearsals For Sean Paul’s Oberhausen Show

Every time I look at theses pictures all I can hear is the MessenJah singing  “Sweep over my soul..”

Such a powerful voice every Reggae fan should see him live at least once, guaranteed to entertain, even had me singing along.

Mark Bell on drums Studio shoot

Mark Bell in Studio

So one of the baddest drummers I have come across Mark Bell @markbellondrums (Sean Paul’sDrummer), was in town and allowed me to tag along to a studio session he had booked. The light wasn’t the best so I had to improvise a little but the way Mark was banging them drums was insane.

Check out Mark’s Band Aligns here

Tripped and Falling a rock band from Trinidad

Tripped and Falling

Tripped and falling a rock band from Trinidad.

Sadly they broke up, they were destined for big tings. I am not too sure why they broke up but while they wer together they rocked it like they owned it..  I aint no Rock fan but theses guys had some real talent and their energy was infectious. Maybe ist a good thing they split or I might have become a rock groupie ..lol

This shoot was from waaay  back in 2006 so one of my first live event shoots so don’t judge me too harshly on this set. Tell me what you think leave a comment below

 

Here is a Tripped and Falling Video, the story I heard was they strapped a video camera to an old microwave motor and did the  whole video in a day ..  maad !!

Junior Kelly @ Rototom Festival 2014

Junior Kelly was set to go on, the crowds started to gather, Rory from Stone Love introduced him, the band went on stage , anticipation peaked and then …

 

The Rain,

Not your normal rain but some mad thunder and lighting hurricane type rain.

rain
Die hard Jr. Kelly Fans sticking it out in the hurricane rain

 

Thousands of people ran for cover,even  the band had to leave the stage, the die hard few  did stick it out though.

All we could do at that point was wait , and wait, half an hour later the clouds parted and it was Spain again as if it had never happened.

Fellow Photographers tell me this happens every year and it was worse when the show was in Italy .

Once it was all over Rory from Stone Love re introduced Junior Kelly  and he took to the stage, he was on top form making up for lost time.  His band and backing Vocalists were on fire as well..

Outkast- BigBoi & Andre3000

Outkast BigBoi and Andre3000

I had a sort of half chance to shoot Outkast from Side stage.

I wasn’t going top let the opportunity pass even though I got my pit pass pulled at the last minuet.

Side stage is not the ideal situation but I had to make some lemonade with theses apples I was handed . So I grabbed the longest lens I had with me 70-200F2.8 and took a few shots.

Not my best work but its Outkast!!!
