Inspiration at The Kessler

My good friend, Jonas Martin, asked me months ago to shoot his band at the historic Kessler Theater in Kessler Park located in the Oak Cliff region of Dallas, Texas. I, of course, was super stoked to cover the show, because the line up was killer! The evening started off with the vintage rock meets rebel punk energy of The Van Sanchez. TVS lead singer, Alexis Sanchez and his boys, having been anxious to play their first show since their EP release back in April, literally blew the top off the joint. Birthday boy, Jonas and his 8-member strong band quickly hopped on stage next and rocked house down! The eclectic array of styles heard in his music had the theater dancing, clapping and singing along all set long. The evening wrapped up with an amazing homecoming set by the Nashville-transplanted Dallas band, Somebody's Darling. It may have been a while since Dallas has been treated to a live show from these Darlings, but, lead singer, Amber Farris and her boys made damn sure to show D-town the love they have for their hometown. In my opinion, the evening seemed to be one of the best reasons why I love this town. Everyone pushes each other to pursue their passions, stay inspired and grow together. Every single person that touched the stage that night aren't just talented musicians, but they are amazing humans that have built a community of individuals who support each other in their relentless endeavors. Much respect to all. Below are some of my favorite stills from the evening. Enjoy and go support your local artists, y'all!
