Only the Best on stage in Atlantic City, New Jersey…

Only the Best On Stage in Atlantic City, New Jersey…


You cannot live in New Jersey and not come across Boss fans…Bruce Springsteen and The East Street Band.  Sometimes it takes seeing a band live to fully appreciate it. I became a fan during the late 80’s.  The music was infectious.

As fortune would have it, my photography has taken me down many avenues and photographing entertainers has been a part of this journey.  Bally’s Atlantic City has a few outdoor concerts during the summer.  If you have never been to one, shame on you.  It’s free.  It’s awesome.  Outdoor concerts are a must see every summer. 

We were blessed to have Clarence Clemons perform on stage with Steve Smith and The Nakeds.  Here’s to the ‘Big Man’.

Clarence always had a smile on stage.

His passion and love of music showed.
