The Caezars

Hail Caezars!!!  The Caezars are my favorite new band. they're young and talented, the new/next wave in rockabilly. these UK lads have only been together for 2 years, and i hear they aren't even of legal age. the young girls loved them at the show in vegas, it felt like it was the second coming of the beatles. they have a bit of a snotty, cocky attitude on stage...and it really works, as they have the talent to back them up. the lead singer reminded me of a young johnny rotten from the sex pistols. i love that they give everything on stage, as it makes for an amazing show, and as a photographer, great pics! i met a few of them at viva and they're really polite, nice guys.  they'll definitely have a crossover effect on the mainstream, and you'll see their pics in all of the fashion/music mags as the "next" big thing.  buy their new CD on Wild Records!

youthquake gone wild!

The Desperados

i love this band The Desperados. they're an LA based 50's rock-n-roll group on the Wild Records label. Wild Records seems to have all the hot new rockabilly bands. The Desperados had an energetic show at vlv this year.  they're raw young talent and really fun to watch on stage! i look forward to seeing them again at vlv 15...

Cash O'Riley

Cash O'Riley is an amazing musician. i was lucky enough to catch his raw performance at vlv14.  with dishelved looks, his early style of rock-n-roll is reminiscent to me of watching a young hasil adkins or link wray.  Cash had some problems with his guitar, but was able to pull through and did an angry version of "I Love Rock-n-Roll" to please his fans. don't miss him if he comes your way.  i hope he makes it to nyc one day so that i can see him perform and take more pictures...

The Reverend Horton Heat

some pics i took of the Reverend Horton Heat at the belle house in brooklyn this past weekend.  i've seen this band so many times over the years, but for some odd reason this is the first time that i took pics of the band (they've been playing for 25 years!) Jimbo, the upright bass player in the band, introduced himself to me after the show. he's a really nice guy and you can tell that he not only loves the music he plays, but the fans as well.  he took time to meet the fans after the show, sign autographs and have his pic taken with them. he's very down-to-earth...a really great guy.

and a thank you to the lovely laura rebel-angel!
