Off topic for a Pentax blog, but worth viewing. Nicki Bluhm - Video


Hi Photographer friends

This post is a little off topic, but I think you will like it. When I was a young man, I used to play in a rock band. I played lead guitar and was also the lead singer. We had big ideas of super stars...but that never happened. I had a lot of fun anyway...and I got the girls.

I stumbled upon the following video and I was immediately mesmerized by what I saw. The band is Nicky Bluhm and the Gramblers.  As the story goes, they are a small group from San Francisco and as they traveled to their next gig, they recorded music videos, first with their iPhone, just to pass time. It looks like the newest videos were made with one or several Go Pro cameras. The results are amazing. Nicky has a pure sounding voice that is refreshing. The group as a whole are very good and I particularly like the harmony and the lead guitarist.

After looking at their website, , I discovered many other videos but better yet, I found their touring agenda and they are actually going to play near where I live in August in a small town called "Pioneer Town", California. I already bought tickets for me and my wife. I don't believe they are going to do the small venue tours for long. The story appeared on CBS News This Morning, and that seems to have propelled their career to a new level. CBS News This MorningMay 31, 2013
