    Shane Martin typically plays solo, but he does in fact play with a band and they are actually really good. I had the chance to shoot the band at Toby Keith’s “I Love This Bar & Grill” in St. Louis Park, which is a great venue for music. The weather was nice enough to get a few groups shots outside before the show. I like the fact that the stage is set up a little higher to give me a better chance for unobstructed photos. Shane’s band closed for national artist Josh Thompson, so the place was packed and most of the crowd stuck around to hear Shane and the boys play – and were rewarded for it!

    After a few days of rainy weather in Nashville, I finally had a nice day to take some photos downtown with Shane Martin.  Downtown Nashville was a great place to walk around with a camera – interesting buildings and textures to play with.  Fresh off of his performance at the Texaco Country Showdown at the historic Ryman Auditorium, Shane was excited to get some updated photos and also to see where the national exposure of the Showdown will take him.  My guess: pretty far!  Shane plays live solo and full-band shows all around the Minneapolis-St. Paul area and a few other interesting venues across the state. Check him out sometime and support your local musicians: www.shanemartin.com

    Had the opportunity to take some photos of Wrecked Wheelhouse a few days ago. I’ve been taking photos of WW since it’s inception a few years ago and it’s been fun to watch the progression of the band.  What makes these guys so much fun to listen to is the mix of acoustic sets, electric sets, and a combo of both. They have a ball “wrecking” songs you know and turning them into unique tunes with plenty of edge.

    Keep an eye on their website as more of my photos get integrated into the design.  And while you’re there, check out their schedule and plan to catch a show. I think you’ll have a blast watching and listening to these guys do their thing!
