Who – Blue Rodeo, The Sadies
When – February 28, 2017
Where – Centre-In-The-Square, Kitchener, ON
Perennial Canadian favourites Blue Rodeo descended upon Kitchener’s sold out crowd and did not disappoint. In my honest opinion after 30 years in the Canadian music scene this band is still vastly underrated. Solid performances night after night. I remember seeing them down on Church Street in Toronto before their first record came out. Must’ve been a handful of people. But still memorable to this day. This was the last night of their tour until the summer. Opening for them on this night was Toronto band The Sadies. Canadian Beats was there to capture all the excitement.

I shoot live music performances and concerts. I love the excitement of entering a venue, knowing that I’ll be photographing a concert and enjoying the energy of the crowd. There’s nothing like being in a venue and looking at the expressions on the faces of people who are all transfixed by the talent onstage. I shoot about 120 shows each year, averaging 2 bands per show, as well as several all-day and weekend festivals in and around Southern Ontario. From the large venues to very small ones, bright lights or barely lit stages, I hope that my photos capture the enjoyment the artists have in doing what they love to do.
