Vestigial violin

By dudler
My mate Jon celebrating his 60th birthday by playing a gig for friends with his partners in musical crime, The Bones.

A good evening.

LED lighting is getting more and more popular for all sorts of gigs. The pluses include less heat and lower electricity bills, but if light levels and colours are changing, or if they are running 'white' lights that rely on an array of multicoloured LEDs in sequence, beware! The sort of shutter speed I used here can easily give banding, as blue light illuminates one part of the subject, and green another as the shutter moves across the sensor (or film: I've not had that problem, but it will be there!)

The Bones do a great variety of songs, from ToTP oldies to blues.

But it's all pretty lively!
