There is a band – its name is Shanty Town.
It’s the kind of band that plays the perfect accompaniment to dancing, a little bit of drinking and having a very good time.
Matt contacted me and asked if I’d be interested in getting some promotional images of the band together before one of their performances. I think for a second… I think about a great location for a second… and jump at the chance.
The location was a laneway out of the back of the club that they were playing that night. It was a little bit of a challenge shooting such a large group in the dark with the occasional car passing through. One or two shots were sacrificed to the occasional blinking eye.
Afterwards a drink of a nice pear cider allowed me the chance to sit down toward the edge of the stage and shoot a few more.
Find Shanty Town on the web here – but I do urge you to find them in reality, wherever they are playing, and have a very good time.
