John Butler Trio

John Butler Trio_Feb_2014_Fonda_Renee Ramge Photography-188

John Butler Trio on tour for their “Flesh and Blood” album at the Fonda Theatre, Hollywood, CA. It was a pilgrimage for Lewis Cooper and I to travel to CA to see one of our favorite bands, JBT. I had been listening to the new album the entire week before the concert and thought my favorite songs were, “Livin’ In The City”, because I got out of my desk chair and danced the first time I heard it. Also, I was grooving on “Only One”, but at the concert the list shifted. I cried when John explained his motivation for “Spring To Come”. We had just said goodbye to a friend who couldn’t wait for spring and took his own life. I hope that John knows how impactful his lyric are for us fans. I selected the above image because I appreciate that John always dedicates his performances to our native ancestors.

Huge bonus for me was picking up a solo album from the mech table, “John Butler Tin Shed Tales”, it may be my favorite of his CD’s. It was recorded live in Australia and John spends time talking about each song. Really looking forward to seeing the guys again in their upcoming shows at Boulder Theatre and Red Rocks in June.  To see more of my live music photos you can go to my Flickr page http://www.flickr.com/photos/69736501@N04/sets/72157641513334874/.  Also, coming soon I recorded a couple of the songs during the concert. I will post them on my Renee Ramge Photography Facebook page. Give my FB page a “like” and keep watch for the video post. Also, you can see my Flickr post of the opener for JBT, Little Hurricane. They’re a powerful duo that we’ll be keeping a watch out for more live performances. Little Hurricane’s new album, Gold Rush is coming out in March.

Jackson Emmer & The Howling Kettles

Jackson Emmer with The Howling Kettles, Sam Moss and Evan Cory Levine. You know when you sit in a restaurant and you hear a table laughing and there is an impulse in you that you want to join them because they’re having the best time being together? Well, that was what it was like to hang out with Jackson and his friends jamming at The Blend Coffee Company, Carbondale CO. They had great contagious energy and got their listeners up dancing, and ended the evening with the lights off for an intimate few songs that melted my heart.

John Oates

John Oates_Smoke n Oates_Steves Guitars 4.6.13-39

Legendary singer songwriter John Oates performed at Steve’s Guitars in Carbondale, CO for a fundraiser for the Colorado Rocky Mountain School on April 6, 2013.  John played new music that he’s been collaborating with other artist to create and that he will be releasing sometime in the near future . The intimate setting allowed for John to share stories about how each song came to be and his experience in the process. Watching this talented seasoned performer was such a treat and frankly I hadn’t given him enough attention to in the past.  I’m really looking forward to hearing him live again and will be on the watch for his new release. To learn more about John Oates, you can visit his website http://www.johnoates.com/ . To see more of my photos from the show you can visit my Flickr page http://www.flickr.com/photos/69736501@N04/sets/72157633187147251/.

Elephant Revival

Elephant Revival Belly Up 2013 March-705

The Elephant Revival quintet is from Nederland, Colorado and they have a sound that is hard to categorize with elements of gypsy, rock, Celtic, alt-country and folk.  All members of the band could be leads in their own groups, but together they create a powerful sound that touches your heart and makes you sing their songs out loud until you’re hoarse.  This was my experience again on Friday, March 27, 2013 at the Belly Up, Aspen.  It was my honor to take their photos and capture this live performance of one of my favorite bands.

Elephant Revival Belly Up 2013 March-785

The lights at the Belly Up offered wonderful opportunity to capture one of my favorite bands in a variety of moods, but this might be my select image from the set, as it captured a moment during “Ole Rouge River”.  I can’t believe I held still enough to take this picture, as this song makes me want to clap and dance. See  more images and information about the band in this post below and on my Flickr page http://www.flickr.com/photos/69736501@N04/sets/72157633122635525/.  Learn more about Elephant Revival and their tour dates on their website http://elephantrevival.com
