little bit o' rock 'n roll for Jesus

My friend, Mike Westendorf, asked me to photograph an event that he and his band were playing for- they were one of the bands to come on before FFH (Far From Home- it's another well-known Christian band). It was a benefit concert for Cancer research, put on by Faith Lutheran Church and was advertised on KLOV.
Well, anyway, what I am trying to say is that it was kind of a big deal.
Which you may have guessed since he wanted me there to photograph the whole thing.

Just Kidding.
Or, as my little bro would say "Hota, Ka, Hota, Ka".
( ask me if you don't get it)

It's a big deal, but not cuz I was there.
It was a big deal because God was there, and we are called to serve Him and each other.
And we did it through music!

The whole thing was in the Sports Complex in Waukesha, so it was held in a really big gym.
You know how gyms are known for their totally spectacular, flattering lighting?
Oh, Yeah. They are known for their totally stinky lighting.
At least there were stage lights, and I was able to utilize my somewhat limited knowledge of lighting to get some pretty suh-WEET effects.
In all honesty, I enjoyed myself there, singing my heart out to Jesus along with the band, and taking pictures at the same time.

Talk about fun!
