Let me just start off this post by saying that the GIN BLOSSOMS have always been one of my favorite bands! Seriously, my college friends and I knew almost all of their songs back in the 90’s! Well, Alycia’s friend Laura, who also happens to be the bride whose wedding I shot in Maui a couple of months ago, just happens to be the sister of Jesse Valenzuela, one of the main guitarists in the band!!
So, when the band came to Dallas a couple of weeks ago, I asked Laura if there was anyway I could get to meet them. Well, not only did her brother get us tickets to the concert, but he also invited me and Andrew to hang out in the band’s Tour Bus after the show!!! Ahhh the life of a rock band is pretty cool I must tell you!!
The best part is that Jesse gave me a huge hug and told me that the photos I took of his sister’s wedding in Hawaii were some of the most beautiful that he’d EVER seen! And then we talked about all getting together and playing golf when they are in town next as well as me possibly shooting their next CD cover next year!!! How cool is that!!!
Anyway, that was a really fun night and here are some photos as well as a cool little video I made from the front row with my little baby camera of the band performing “Hey Jealousy.” I REALLY wish I had brought my REAL camera!!
