John Mayer – live at Jones Beach, New York


I have been waiting to start the music/performance category on our site for quite some time. As many of you know, I am an avid music fan and have had the opportunity to meet and photograph countless musicians and performers. I have to rank John Mayer as one of my personal favorites. I grew up a big Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmie Vaughan, and Eric Clapton fan and was also raised on a heavy dose of Otis Redding, James Brown, Sam and Dave, and all of the great Stax Soul artists (thanks to my father, Bob Garland). Needless to say, I enjoy soulful, blues guitar and I have become a big fan of John Mayer’s guitar work……especially his dedication to the craft and constant ability to write and play at such a high level all while continuing to reinvent himself musically. It was a pleasure for me to document one of his shows and I will start my posts with this series of images from Jones Beach in New York.
