JAMES and BEN TAYLOR In Concert!!

With Special Guest Ben Taylor
Jacksonville -March 22nd, 2011

Last Tuesday night I had the distinct pleasure of
photographing James Taylor and his son Ben in concert
at The Moran Theater in Jacksonville.

James and Ben sound wonderful together, as you might expect.
It makes me think that it would be awesome to see more
of the Taylor clan tour together in the future!

The show was sold out, and being approved as a press
photographer, I was only permitted to shoot and be in the
building for the first 3 songs! But, it was worth it,
and I am truly grateful to to James, Ben and the
Moran for all of their assistance!

This one's for Jen....

Before the show, I ran into Ben Taylor outside
his bus...he said he was very excited to be on
tour with his dad, and promised to do an
interview with me soon, so watch for that!

In January, I shot James' younger brother Livingston
at his performance here in Florida. Larry Hoppen
of ORLEANS joined me, and I caught this great pic
of he and Liv singing "Still The One" backstage
before showtime. What a great bunch of guys!

And with Livingston the following year.
