Martin Barre in Munich 2015

Recommended Posts

Like in the last three years I went to see Martin Barre playing at the nightclub of Hotel Bayerischer Hof.

It was his 50th stage anniversary and he was not holding back.

This time he came with female support, Becca Langsford. and Alex Hart (Alex also sings backing vocals on "Back to Steel"):

As usual the drummer was well hidden and the light was absymal.

Dan Crisp (while he was mostly up front the stage light usually missed him):

Still way too many images but at a certain point I can't decide what to nuke anymore.

I mostly used the D750, but the D700 was also used. Mostly primes (85/1.8, 50/1.8 and a Sigma 24/1.8) but also a Tarmon 28-75/2.8.

Still not sure about the highlight protect mode of the D750. Seems to be more erratic than just using spot metering on this rather dim stage.

This was the first concert I completely processed with Capture One.

cheers

A great set. I can feel the energy. It looks like it must have been a great show.

      A few weeks back I stumbled across Alpin Drums, a percussion/performance group.
      When I booked the ticket I realized one of them was the percussionist from The Stimulators, a favourite band of mine.
      So expectations where very high but easily matched by the guys on stage.
       
      They where using everything from milk cans


      to rubber toys and plastic tubing


      and even swimming noodles

       
      The whole set is here.
       
      cheers

      On May 10th, we went to listen to Peter Schneider and 'Sir' Oliver Malley,
      two excellent guitarists playing blues together.
      I have heard Peter many times as the band leader of the "The Stimulators",
      so my expectations where high, but I was not disappointed.
      Oliver is definitely a stage person:


      Together they are a terrific team:

      Even the barkeeper is impressive:

      And they do mix excellent cocktails there, they even have really good espresso.
      A few more images can be seen here: here.
      Now I am waiting for their first CD.
      All images with 50/1.8 or a Sigma 24/1.8.
      cheers

      Recently I visited the Schrottgallerie the first time. It is an art gallery that often hosts concerts.
      That evening Boogielicious was on the "stage".
      Drums and piano playing Boogie with lots of energy.

      Last year I went to three concerts of The Whiskey Foundation.
      The first more by accident, I came for another band at a free concert evening and was totally surprised by the last act (and fighting with the broken AF of my newly acquired D750)...
      In April and December I went there on purpose. The guys are great!
      The sound often reminds me of the Doors even though it is new stuff written today.
      For me the Munich Band of 2015.
      Over the three concerts I could see how their stage presentation evolved. Initially the playlist was not built for a progression, but in the last concert they had that down perfectly.
      And, the concert in December was performed at Clap Club, a demo or film studio from Arri, so the light was fabulous.
      The December concert had an opening act by the street musicians the singer used to play with:

      The singer:

      The Drummer, the beast:

      One of the few moments where one could see the face of the bass player:

      The keyboarder sounds a lot like Ray Manzarek:

      Lead Guitar:

      The full set:
