The Return to Concert Photography

by | Jul 11, 2021 | Concerts, Story Behind The Image | 0 comments

Concert Photography shutdown last year due to the pandemic. I spent over a year with no live, in-person music. Horrible! Sunday night I was able to shoot Marcus Johnson. To be compliance, Rams Head made small changes to the venue. Waitresses have cell phones to handle customer purchases and check-ins. Empty tables were scattered throughout the view for social distancing. Marcus Johnson started a little after 8 p.m. dressed down wearing a Rolling Stone t-shirt. Marcus had the audience heads moving as he played songs from his catalog. He gave a touching story about the name “Danny’s Song”. Marcus was backed by a 4-piece band and they even challenged Marcus on a couple of songs. The audience love it.
Visit or subscribe to Apple, Pandora, Spotify, or YouTube to listen to Marcus Johnson. Marcus Johnson wine, Flo, can be ordered online at
