BandAid 2010 at the El Mocambo

Comments Off on BandAid 2010 at the El Mocambo

Some amazing local talent in support for refugee students and educational programs for refugees in Kenya.  A great concert for a great cause!

There were supposed to be 19 different performers but after checking my images and the artist list there were 17 altogether.  Artists included Charmaine D’Souza, Alicia Cundall, Brandon MacDonald, Calla Paleczny, Freedom Funkers, Gaiaisi, Sean McCurdy, Veronika Fynn, Tunes Beats Awesome, Fulani, Parks and Rec, Amadou, Ibrahim Aden, Michael Barry, and Kae Sun!  Kae Sun absolutely blew me away with his acoustic set and I had to buy his cd (Lion on a Leash) the day after as his music stayed in my head all night.  The album by the way is awesome!  Go get it!!!

Included in the pictures are Gaiaisi, Parks and Rec, Tunes Beats Awesome, Sean McCurdy and Kae Sun.

Thanks to Tiana for letting me be part of this night.

Tech note:  This is the first concert I have shot with the D700 and the images are just amazing.  All of the images were anywhere from ISO 2000 to 4000.  Slight noise and the colour held up quite well.  I can remember shooting with my D200 over a year and a half ago and struggling to keep detail and colour, let alone the noise factor at ISO 1250.  I also used my Sigma 24-70 2.8 for the first couple of acts and then switched to the Nikon 50mm 1.4G for the rest of the night as I had a clear spot anywhere by the stage.
