Being a kid/teenager in the 90s had quite a few fantastic things: Nickelodeon, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Beavis & Butthead, and of course, some of the best pop rock every made.  Cover band “The Bayside Tigers” brings not only the loves for that time and its music back in full force, but does it with an amazing amount of fun and energy…

Notes:

Being a someone who grew up in the 90s, The Bayside Tigers struck quite a positive chord with me.  Performing at The Canal Room, a small venue in New York City right around Canal Street which I had shot The Electrik Company (performing as “Daft Punk”) at about a month ago, I had to deal with some weird and random lighting situations.  But you know what?  For this, it totally works.

The 90s were all about neon colors, baggy pants, side way hats, fanny packs, and all those things now as adults we kind of cringe at.  The neon blue, green, and pink lights of the Canal Room stage really work well together to help compliment the band, which are a totally gnarly blast to watch.

The only downside was that the place was PACKED (there was a massive line around the block of people waiting/hoping to get in to the venue), and trying to move around to get different and unique shots was pretty difficult.  On quite a few occasions, people banged their heads in to my 80-200 2.8 lens, which was awkward.

Lastly, this gentleman was apparently from Ireland and visiting NYC.  He asked me to take a photo of him, which I didn’t mind doing at all.  However, I guess because I didn’t have a flash equipped, he didn’t think I took a shot.  Well sir, here you go;  I hope you see this and enjoyed your taste of not only America, but 1990’s America!

 

Equipment:

Nikon D3 w/ 24-70 2.8

Nikon D600 w/ 80-200 2.8
