We love shooting bands. Mostly because of the musical background here at RyKie Images & Events, but just the sheer energy a group of people can unleash on a stage. The communication of raw emotion is something we particularly like to document, and we’ve been fortunate to do just that.
Recently, we got to shoot Damage Inc., a Tribute to Metallica again over at Spin Nightspot. These guys are just so much fun to work with. And their sound – wow – they’re sure to win over any Metallica fan.
What sets these guys apart is their vast repertoire. While some tribute bands tend to focus on a particular era to define them, Damage Inc. belts out tunes from all over the Metallica songbook. In a typical set, you’ll hear them flip from the B-side of Ride the Lightening to a cover of a cover of a cover from Garage Inc.
If you attend one of their live shows, prepare for an adventure. Unlike many bands that rip through a set quickly, these guys set endurance records with their two-plus hour shows. Bottom line, if you’re fortunate enough to be in the same time zone as one of their shows, drop everything and go. You won’t regret it.
Speaking of bands, we have an announcement coming up very soon on a huge act we’re shooting – keep your eyes on this page for more details!
Did you happen to catch the 2015 edition of the Brooks Kinsmen Rodeo Parade? We were there, and perhaps we saw you, too! Check out this link to a special gallery of images from the parade. It was a nice, hot day - great to see so many people taking part in the parade and watching it from the street!
