Not long after the last time I shot the March Fourth Marching Band at Musikfest Cafe, I received an email from Polly, one of the dancers/stilt-walkers from the band. We discussed photo usage for an upcoming article about her, and then we ended up talking about some ideas I had for some photos as well.
When I saw that the band was returning to MFC, I dropped Polly a line, and we talked about some possibilities for shooting something a little different. After going back and forth a bit, we decided that I would shoot some portraits of band members backstage before the show. Those portraits (which were so much fun to shoot, and turned out pretty killer) are coming soon.
In the meantime, here are some live shots from the band's performance that night. I ended up missing about 45 minutes of the show because I was breaking down my "studio" I had set up and running it outside. The band was great, as always. If March Fourth comes to anywhere within 100 miles of you, GO!
