Louisville Concert Photos

Here is our second set of pics – this time from the Louisville Coffee Concert in May of 2010. The band gave a great performance in an intimate setting just a short walk from downtown Louisville, CO.

We are now making some of our photos available on the web site!

Each time we have a new set to show, we’ll post them here on the front page. If you would like to see past photos (once we have posted a few), simply look for the category drop-down on the right side of the page. Select ‘Photos’ from the list and you’ll be taken to a page that lists all of our previously posted photos! Simple!

Anyway, to kick things off, here are six photos taken at the February 2010 performance at the Summit Jazz Foundation concert which was held at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts’ Seawell Grand Ballroom. Make sure you hover each image if you want to see a description!

One more thing – please remember that, as artists, copyright protection is something we wholly support. Please don’t steal.
