Red, Hot and Boom 2014

Red, Hot and Boom is Orlando's biggest independence day festival, and this year's line-up of talent included Ingrid Michelson, American Authors, and Alex & Sierra. 

Alex & Sierra take the stage at Red, Hot & Boom 2014, and being from Central FL themselves, they were no strangers to RHB. Sierra even said it had been her dream to perform here someday. They put on an amazing set in front of thousands of Central Floridians!

The Naked and Famous

Synths, lights, and the Beacham. All the way from Auckland, the Naked and Famous!

Kind of awesome to see a band all the way from New Zealand come to Orlando, even more awesome to see the entire venue filled wall to wall for them.

Photo Stuff:

Shot with a 5D Mark III and a 14mm 2.8 that nearly never came off the body, most of these shots are right around 1600-3200 ISO and the Mark III handles the noise easy. Great, because the Beacham is notoriously dark and usually a photography nightmare, luckily this wasn't the case tonight!

A challenge at this show were the two synths and four mic stands that were front stage left and right, I opted to shoot between them and to get both Alisa Xayalith and Thom Powers in a single frame, shot to the side for individuals.

Orlando Food & Wine Fest 2013

Great local food vendors, and an amazing line-up of musicians took the stage.

CeCe Teneal, Vicci Martinez, Matt Hires, Andy Grammer, and the All-American Rejects.

Oh, and shout-out to these two little rockers who were the coolest kids out here at the festival:

Thanks for looking,

Steven.
