Ginga Video!

Here is a video that I shot a while back of Ginga, a Boulder, Colorado-based samba group specializing in pagode-style samba - an inclusive, highly energized and vocally oriented version of traditional samba that came out the favelas of Rio de Janeiro in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The group was founded several years ago by native Brazilian Francisco Marques (vocals, percussion, cavaquinho), Greg LaLiberte (vocals, percussion, woodwinds), Raoul Rossiter (vocals, percussion), Bill Kopper (vocals, 7-string guitar), Carl Dixon (vocals, percussion), and Ian Brighton (vocals, percussion, woodwinds). Initially playing to small crowds for intermittent gigs around the Boulder area, the group now plays to capacity rooms on nearly every gig. Brazilians, South Americans, and North Americans are all equally represented in an increasingly growing and loyal fan base. The group is known for its authenticity in presenting a style of music that is rarely heard outside the borders of Brazil, bringing to the States a live concert experience that used to be available only on recordings.

Check them out live yourself this coming Thursday (March 3) at the Laughing Goat in Boulder or on Saturday (March 5) at the Mercury Cafe in Denver!

Mitchell Wedding in Kauai

MITCHELL_WEDDING-5579

I had the privilege of taking a little vacation to Hanalei Bay, Kauai over the holidays for my best friend's wedding. The lovely Brittany Rizza finally became Brittany Rizza Mitchell as she sealed the deal with the handsome Kevin Mitchell. The wedding was straight out of a magazine...with the bay in the background and the sun perfectly out for the first time in a week. We couldn't have asked for a more gorgeous setting.

Troubadours' Collective

IMG_7732

I've been populating the Laughing Goat's web gallery for some time now, which is fun because I get to shoot some great local artists. This particular night was an opening exhibit of art by Tom Roderick and music by the Troubadours' Collective. For over 5 years running, the Troubadours events have been a songwriter's showcase for both Boulder and Denver artists. Beginning at the Trilogy Wine Bar, the series continued at both the B.side Lounge, Fox Theater and now the Laughing Goat. Performances by: Donnie Mortimer, Dechen Hawk, Ramaya Soskin and Dana Raabe, Max Davies, and Clay Rose.

Wrestling

I decided Mondays are my designated photography work days...so today I'm catching up on the blog and archiving the external hard-drive. Fun.

Here's a few shots from a wrestling match I shot for the Longmont Times-Call in December.
