Shinedown’s 2013 Carnival of Madness tour truly has me at a loss for words.  If I just throw around superlatives, they lose meaning… right??  I’ll use them anyways.  They deserve it.

Brilliant. Stunning. Amazing. Unsurpassed. Surprising. Consummate.

These words do not just apply to one facet of what Shinedown brings; These words describe the performance, visual presentation, lyrical content, musicianship, showmanship, creativity, character, and even their supporting crew.  These guys are masters of their craft and the performance thereof, master entertainers – and they truly focus on delivering an amazing experience for their audience.

I’ve known this for a while, and Shinedown’s sold-out Carnival of Madness performance in Cincinnati, OH on August 17th, 2013 only reminded me of these things.

I highly recommend catching this tour – and highly recommend taking a look through this slideshow of concert images.

I’ll let a massive pile of images speak for me at this time.


p.s.  Fire dancers, circus performers and more.  Wow.   More on that in another post…

Skoota Warner is one of those drummers that you’ve seen play with artists spanning all genre’s – Ra, The B-52’s, Hot Tuna, Cyndi Lauper, Santana, Matisyahu, and other artists of all types of musical styles. He also happens to be a friendly guy! What were the odds?!

Right now, Skoota is tearing it up as the beat on tour behind Patrick Stump’s awesome new pop/R&B new solo project. (See my shoot with Patrick Stump here)

I spent some time with Skoota one recent afternoon in Tampa before a performance at the Orpheum, grabbing some fresh photos for Promark & Evans. We were blessed with the presence of the spectacularly talented Zekeshem Parsons of Blue Lane Studios, who was able to give a hand! Here are some shots from that day!
