I had an idea of putting a photo slide show together of several of the photographs I had taken over the years at WimBash so I text Doug Wimbish to tell him about the idea. Doug text me back, "you must be a mind reader". Doug was looking for something to show on the televisions throughout the venue. I got started on the idea. The final slideshow was given to Doug as a birthday present and has pictures of Doug with friends and family set to music from several recording he either performed on or produced. The version of A Wimbash Moment (at left) was designed as a tribute to Doug and WimBash 2013 and was uploaded to youtube. The frames move at a much faster pace and include mostly shots of musicians who performed at WimBash through the years. The music is by Kolateral Kontak.

I would like to take a moment to say thank you to all of the musicians who allowed me to take photos of them while they worked.
This promo was put together to advertise a Soulful Passion show and Vibz. I slapped it together using an iphone with some edits in iMovie, then Mother Nature steps in with a nice little blizzard the night of the show. Well at least I had fun making this! That's Pat Thompson, Darryl Carter & Ralph Hunt.
