Ahhhh... Hit Play... My favorite band in the Ohio Valley. In an effort to shoot more fun and creative photos during my "off season" for a personal project about things I enjoy, I thought I would ask Hit Play if they minded if I shot one of their shows. I contacted Ezra, lead vocals/guitar/and band leader, and he welcomed my idea with open arms.
The first time I heard Hit Play was a few years ago at the Wing Festival in Center Market in Wheeling, WV. I have seen them quite a few times since then and they have even played at some weddings I have photographed. This band is a melt-your-face-off top 40 cover band with some old school music (Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Sublime, and much more) mixed in. If you can sit in your chair while they're playing then we probably can't be friends because I don't understand you. If you have seen them play- you definitely understand. If you haven't seen them, you should really get on that. So much talent and energy radiates off of these guys. It is so awesome photographing people doing what they love and I had a blast shooting these photos.
Thank you Hit Play for allowing me to capture some creative little glimpses of your recent show. Here are a few of my favorites....
