Trey Anastasio Band

"Music is sort of the last pure thing on earth. We've kind of always seen it as a thing where it's an escape. You can let go with the music and lose yourself." - Trey Anastasio

When the lead singer for Phish announced he was taking his side project on the road, I hoped I would be able to see a show. When he announced he was stopping in Minneapolis, I hoped I could obtain a photo pass. Through some contacts at GlideMagazine.com this dream became a reality. Being able to combine my passion for photography with my love of music made this a night I will never forget. Thanks to all that made this happen and helped me along the way. Hopefully I've just begun my adventures of live music photography.

Photo notes: Standing against the stage, taking it all in. Not knowing what to expect or how things will turn out. Then the lights go out and the crowd erupts. I have roughly 15 minutes to get my shots. Then I'm done. Somehow I managed to change out 3 different lenses without missing a beat.

  1. Some really great shots Joe! I am happy and proud of you and your work. I just might be turning into a Joe Ringus photography fan. :-) Keep going. I am excited to see what you come up with next. ~Liz
