    Default Post a picture of your band!!

    Did a search and nothing came up that I could see!

    Just happened to have some pictures done over the weekend by an out of work photographer which I thought looked quite cool so decided to share...

    Would love to see some of yours too...

    Great idea for a thread!

    Band photo's are always a bit tricky and sort of a pain to do. Here's one that we did for Stay Tuned a couple of years ago....

    Fun idea Aran. I don't have any professional shots to share, but we do have one candid shot and one semi candid shot that I think are pretty good. Our bass player missed the dress code memo in the first shot, guess his golf game ran late. I'm hoping we can get an endorsement deal from the second shot ...

    I wish i could !. The photos of my band disappeared over 40 years back. Unfortunately they were also the ones taken at the venue where we opened for Bill Monroe & the boys in 1966. BM's Banjo player at the time,Lamar Grier, could be seen sitting at the side of the stage during our 2nd spot,

    Here's a shot of my jazz group. The fact that we're all wearing black shirts is purely a coincidence.

    A couple of bands I was in from way back. Park bench shot of Wonderbeans was from late 1970s and Tunesmith from around mid-1980s.

    This is a picture from a contra dance we played last October. It was a balmy 40 degrees in the old barn the dance was held at. Note the little heaters on the floor in front of us. Billy Mathews on fiddle, James Eyman on mandola, Christine Breen on the banjo and me, Paul Breen on guitar. I think this was the coldest gig yet. We called ourselves Willy and the North Polecats.

    Yes, it is. And the fiddler on the end is Sam Zygmuntowicz, master violin maker.

    Here is my favorite photo of the SSB, taken with an old, wooden cased, large format, poloroid camera. It was at a music retreat in Bath NC. I am the one holding a 1932 National Triolian tenor guitar.
