Boy Hits Car at Herman’s Hideaway, Denver, CO 081814

Boy Hits Car at Herman's Hideaway, Denver, CO 081814

I think we have a new annual tradition…Boy Hits Car at Herman’s Hideaway! It was another fantastic show, and I think the new songs share plenty of that energy from when the band was just getting their start a few years ago. Keep it up, boys, and I can’t wait to work with you again […]


XFactor1 and Boy Hits Car at Herman’s Hideaway, Denver, Colorado 050913 by Jason Claypool

XFactor1 and Boy Hits Car at Herman's Hideaway, Denver, Colorado 050913 by Jason Claypool

It has been so long since I discovered Boy Hits Car, and have waited and waited and waited for a tour and a Denver date. Well, my wish finally came true, and they came to town on the Taproot tour, and just tore up the Denver crowd at Herman’s Hideaway on 050913. I emailed the […]


Moreland and Arbuckle at the Toad Tavern, Denver, Colorado 042413 by Jason Claypool

Moreland and Arbuckle at the Toad Tavern, Denver, Colorado 042413 by Jason Claypool

It’s always great to see the guys when they pass through Denver. Last year, I wasn’t thrilled with the Toad Tavern’s lighting, but for some reason, the blue light really worked and Dustin had a decent spotlight on him this time. Too bad the show didn’t get hyped up more on 103.5 The Fox, but […]


Easter Sunrise Service 2013 at Red Rocks Amphitheater, Morrison, Colorado 031313 by Jason Claypool

Easter Sunrise Service 2013 at Red Rocks Amphitheater, Morrison, Colorado 031313 by Jason Claypool

What a great event! Over 11,000 turned out to what is normally a 9,000+ capacity facility for this year’s Easter Sunrise Service, and the beauty and grace of Red Rocks Amphitheater gets a bit of the credit for that. The weather was perfect with no breeze, clear moonlit skies, and a steady 30F until the […]

Adam Carolla Mangria signing at Applejack Wine & Spirits, Denver / Wheat Ridge, Colorado 030213 by Jason Claypool

Adam Carolla stopped by Applejack Wine and Spirits for a signing for his new Mangria line of sangria, before a show on the Adam and Drew Tour at the Paramount that night. I’m guessing there were about 500 people in line, each one of them Adam’s biggest fan from his work on KROQ as Mr. […]


Rickoli’s Brewery Grand Opening 112812

Rickoli's Brewery Grand Opening 112812

What a great new nanobrewery, and it’s so close in Wheat Ridge! I think it’s going to be my new favorite beer hangout! I got in touch with Rick, and knew how much this town was rooting for him as he strikes out on his own. He was happy to show me around the works […]


Winger at the Grizzly Rock, Lakewood, Colorado 120112

Winger at the Grizzly Rock, Lakewood, Colorado 120112

Well, I’ve seen Winger 4 times in my life, and this had to be the best, because I was taking pictures as a pro! Who would have thought that the band that got grief for being a bit cheesy so long ago is really the last band standing with the most musical talent, the least […]


Great American Beer Festival GABF 2012, Denver, Colorado 101212 and 101312

Great American Beer Festival GABF 2012, Denver, Colorado 101212 and 101312

I was so excited to volunteer and pour again this year, my 4th! I poured in the Southwest area this year, and got to work with the great guys from Freetail Brewing of San Antonio. www.freetailbrewing.com/ Sold out in 45 minutes, 50,000 attendees, 600 breweries and 2700 beers, with a 2000+ long list to volunteer…it […]


Skid Row at the Grizzly Rock, Lakewood, Colorado 081812

Skid Row at the Grizzly Rock, Lakewood, Colorado 081812

I love the Grizzly Rock more and more with every show! It is just the perfect fit for any rock show in Denver. The lighting and sound are just stellar, and complemented Skid Row so perfectly. Seeing Rachel Bolan, Dave “The Snake” Sabo, Scotti Hill, Rob Hammersmith after all these years, sounding as great as […]


Hairball at the Grizzly Rock, Lakewood Colorado 081012

Hairball at the Grizzly Rock, Lakewood Colorado 081012

Hairball at the Grizzly Rock, Lakewood CO 081012 Another great show at the Grizzly Rock! Cinderella bailed on Denver the night before, and I was supposed to grab a few promo shots of the club for a graphics company. Corey Guildner was bummed at the band’s shenanigans and the thought of having no headliner for […]


Paradise City and Warrant at the Grizzly Rock, Lakewood, Colorado 072812

Paradise City and Warrant at the Grizzly Rock, Lakewood, Colorado 072812

This was my first time shooting at the Grizzly Rock! It was so great to see an awesome new venue in the same building as After The Gold Rush and Hollywood Legends, where I saw so many great rock shows back in the day. Great staff, great drinks, GREAT SOUND, and great lighting…thanks to Corey […]


Some favorites from Red Rocks Ampitheater, Morrison Colorado

Some favorites from Red Rocks Ampitheater, Morrison Colorado

I have a few shots that I have been thinking about lately from the last few years that have not made it onto this site, until now. No matter whether it is attending a concert, an Easter Sunrise Service, watching Scramble Campbell paint, running the stairs with a hundred others on a weekend, or just […]


Pena, Native Daughters and Russian Circles at the Bluebird Theater, Denver, Colorado 070212

Pena, Native Daughters and Russian Circles at the Bluebird Theater, Denver, Colorado 070212

What a blast! It’s been a while since I’ve seen a hard show, and it was great to catch up with Nick Sullivan from Pena again, and catch two other bands I had never seen before. The dueling drummers from Native Daughters and the heavy grind from Russian Circles just blew me away. Make sure […]


Coffee Cupping at Noa Noa Coffee in Golden, Colorado 033112

Coffee Cupping at Noa Noa Coffee in Golden, Colorado 033112

This was a lot of fun. Rick Myers and the owner of Noa Noa set up this cupping, and invited the roaster to come in and educate the masses a bit about four different coffees he specializes in, and some different techniques and equipment. As a HUGE espresso fan, it was so interesting to find […]


Moreland and Arbuckle at the Toad Tavern, Littleton, Colorado, 033012

Moreland and Arbuckle at the Toad Tavern, Littleton, Colorado, 033012

Shooting this show worked out so perfectly! I love Moreland and Arbuckle! I thought that I would email the band, and get things approved ahead of time to photograph the set. Well, that didn’t work out quick enough on my end, and our friends Sean and Amy were definitely going, so I thought we would […]


Ghin Asian Blend & Sushi – A Night Out With Friends in Lakewood, Colorado 071611

Ghin Asian Blend & Sushi - A Night Out With Friends in Lakewood, Colorado 071611

I had a great night out at Ghin Asian Blend & Sushi in Lakewood, Colorado, with Rick and Kristin Myers, and some friends and clients he has worked with lately. Rick arranged a sushi instructional night with Mike at Ghin to teach us all about sushi and some asian/Hawaiian cooking techniques. I can’t recommend this […]


Lisa Hannigan and Jason Mraz at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver 092708

Lisa Hannigan and Jason Mraz at the Fillmore Auditorium in Denver 092708

I’m revisiting this set now, because I am so excited about Lisa’s new material, and the possibility of a US tour. I had left the shots unprocessed this long because the venue and billing that night did such a disservice to Lisa. This was my first time seeing Lisa Hannigan, and she opened for Jason […]


Matt Darey at Beta in Denver 020412 with DJ Dragon and Tommy Michael

Matt Darey at Beta in Denver 020412 with DJ Dragon and Tommy Michael

What an unbelievable show. Blown away by Tommy’s groove, amazed once again by Dragon’s set, and then to see the best there is, Matt Darey, at work? Just awesome. Once again, Beta could not have been nicer or more accommodating to me. Plenty of access, shooting from the go-go boxes, and one hell of a […]


Justice League of Street Food party in Denver’s Taxi neighborhood 081311

Another great night with the Justice League of Street Food! Denver’s best food, served up in a vacant lot in a trendy neighborhood. Amazing exotics like beef tongue tacos and liquid nitrogen treats, to gourmet twists on old favorites- maple-bacon cupcakes, anyone? Tonight had it all, with a live dj, a hip crowd, a beautiful […]

50 Published Concert, Music, Event and Promotional Shots

These shots are a selection of 50 that I had published in the Denver Post’s Reverb music review blog from 2008 to 2009, and are a good representation of my music photography. Seeing them in print, or on album artwork, or on a flyer, or on the Denver Post’s site, or popping up with my […]


Kristin Myers at Read, Write and Brew 121610

Kristin Myers at Read, Write and Brew in Golden, Colorado 121610. A great local artist in a cool little coffee house. Tons of books, great coffee, and a few regulars- it was a fun show.
