Normally I try and post great, enthusiastic titles on my posts. For this one however I’m going to keep things a little more restrained and respectful.
The subject in question was the annual Cavern Mecca event, held in the world famous Cavern Club in Liverpool. A venue which often feels like my second home – I do seem to spend a lot of time there, living and breathing in the atmosphere, photographing of course, occasionally eating but never sleeping.
The Cavern Mecca event itself is a longstanding fundraiser which I had the pleasure of applying my specialist live music photography at last year and the privilege of repeating the event this year. It was great to catch up and chat with good friends and great bands like The Shakers, The Rockits, Hamburg Beat and Backbeat along with hearing some of the latest new talent in the best of surroundings.
This year was dedicated to one of Merseybeat’s legends, the late Geoff Nugent and a fitting tribute it was too!!!
Many thanks are due as always to all of the Cavern Club staff and management, huge congratulations to Julie and the team who brought it all together – no mean feat in itself. Finally, many thanks to my close friend and occasional assistant Tony, I think he kind of enjoyed himself!
There’s a gallery of pictures online via this link – hope you like them. If you’d like to order any please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Also please give me a shout if I can help in any way with any other needs, be it live music photography, corporate photography, portraiture or wedding photography.
