Simon Mulligan Trio

Last year, around this time, I had the opportunity to listen and photograph this amazing trio at the Jazz Cabaret upstairs from the Miller Symphony Hall in Allentown PA. Acclaimed pianist Simon Mulligan has played with everyone from The Royal Philharmonic to Sting. Mr. Mulligan returns to Allentown for an evening of standards, jazz classics, and original music from his CD “Playlist.” Joining Simon will be bassist Gene Perla, who has performed with Elvin Jones, Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone, Sonny Rollins, and other jazz luminaries. Rounding out the rhythm section will be my good friend, Dave Willard on drums. Expect to hear the Simon Mulligan Trio’s sophisticated take on your favorite timeless melodies and Simon’s own compositions. They will be playing again this Friday, February 19th at 7:30PM. For more info and tickets click here. The following are images from last year’s performance and were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1.

TEDx Lehigh River 2015

Theme: Why Not?

TEDxLehighRiver 2015 will bring together a diverse group of speakers and audience members from the Lehigh Valley and beyond for a program of engaging and thought-provoking presentations and conversation reflecting the quotation from George Bernard Shaw: “You see things and say, Why? But I dream things that never were and say, WHY NOT?”

The event was held this past Saturday at Miller Symphony Hall in Allentown, PA to an audience in excess of a couple hundred people. I love the concept of TED talks. I have had the opportunity to photograph this local event since it started in 2013 and I was one of the original presenters also.

This year’s cast of presenters (see the images below) did not disappoint. They included:

Dr. Catherine Moore
English Teacher, English Literature and Theatre

George Hrab
Multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer, composer, and heliocentrist

Joyce Marin
Executive Director of Renew Lehigh Valley

Lauren Villaverde
Engineer and entrepreneur

Liz Jordon
Certified yoga instructor trained in Trauma Sensitive Yoga

Michael Brolly
Wood turning artist, teacher, environmentalist

Jazz Cabaret – Hot Bijouxx

On Friday night, August 15th I was once again given the pleasure of capturing the evening through photography at the Jazz Upstairs. Hot Bijouxx performed an energetic mélange of Prohibition-era jazz, brilliantly combining story telling with the music. The 4 piece jazz band was complimented by the vocals of Najwa Parkins. Another great night of great jazz on the 3rd floor of Miller Symphony.

Bill Goodwin Quartet

A few weeks back I had the privilege of photographing Bill Goodwin, a professional drummer with an extended list of past performances and bands. Goodwin played with his quartet at Miller Symphony Hall- Jazz Cabaret. The quartet performed selections from Goodwin’s new CD “Raise Four”. The evening was great fun and always enjoyable in the “best listening room in the Lehigh Valley”- 3rd floor Jazz Cabaret. For future Jazz Cabaret Series schedule and tickets, Click Here .

Funk Xpress with Gene Perla

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of seeing Gene Perla with his newly formed group, Funk Xpress, play upstairs at the Miller Symphony Hall, Jazz Cabaret Series. The performance was highly energizing and extremely entertaining. The band consists of renowned talent that successfully captivated the audience with a variety of music choices. During the evening, there were hints of future Jazz Cabaret performances. Let’s keep our fingers crossed! For future Jazz Cabaret Series schedule and tickets, Click Here .

Simon Mulligan: Love Songs

A couple of weeks ago, Valentine’s Day to be exact, I photographed Simon Mulligan and company at the Jazz Cabaret upstairs at the Miller Symphony Hall. The company part consisted of Steven Liu, the Director El Sistema Youth Music Education Program and my very good friend, David Willard on drums. The trio created an evening of absolutely amazing music. You could hear and feel the passion of classically trained pianist, Simon Mulligan. I am already looking forward to his next performance.
