Five years ago we said goodbye to The Senate. What was intended on a one time Senate reunion after 5 years, sold out The Tractor in a couple days, and the guys ended up turning it into a mini reunion, summer tour and all! What fans also didn’t know was the band was planning on releasing another live album from the reunion show. SO AWESOME!!
Lucky for me, I got to witness the reunion a little early during rehearsals AND witness both shows!
As a result, I ended up volunteering to video AND photograph the reunion. This proved to be VERY difficult with just one camera. But it was a fun project!
Which also in turn, ended up fulfilling one of my dreams: MY PHOTOS USED AS ALBUM ART!! I’ve always wanted to be that photographer that gets to travel with bands and documents the behind the scenes stuff and rocktography that gets put into CD art on the inside with all the lyrics…I never even thought about one of my photos actually being used as the front of an album! But lucky me when Nick asked me for permission. Permission? I felt like someone was asking me if it was ok to pay me my lottery winnings. HECK YES!! Nick’s brother Benjamin created the album art using my photos and I couldn’t be more ecstatic with how it turned out. I am just honored beyond ridiculous means.
Definitely one of the highlights of my summer.
Catch the guys now on their tour this summer as a venue near you! Summer tour schedule and tickets available online.
What would be even better though is snagging one of the few tickets left for their CD Release Show (August 9) at The Triple Door AND getting yourself one of their albums! They’ve never sold a show out there before, so getting your ticket at the door is not reccommended. The last time they played a double header at the Triple Door, tickets sold out for tables AND standing room areas! So if you haven’t seen them yet, you’ll definitely want to see them now! Get your tickets here!
So happy and excited for these lovely fellow human beings. 🙂
Oh. And the video I ended up making, while not what I had originally had in mind, works too!
