Lisa’s Lens: Uriah Heep at Musikfest Cafe

I didn’t know much about Uriah Heep heading into Tuesday night. All I knew is that I signed up for a concert photography class through ArtsQuest, and that the “final exam” was the chance to photograph the band during their Musikfest Café performance that night.

Recapping the Lehigh Valley Music Awards Rock Showcase

To me, Sunday’s incredible Lehigh Valley Music Awards Rock Showcase at Musikfest’s Plaza Tropical reinforced a few things that I already knew:

  • Rock is alive and well in the Lehigh Valley.
  • Our area has a wealth of local talent.
  • The Greater Lehigh Valley Music Association is a pretty cool organization to work with.
  • Musikfest might be the best thing on the planet.

Personally, it was a blast to be on-hand for four great, local bands like Another Day Dawns, Doubting Thoma$, The Cherrybombs, and Social Call. All four bands rocked so hard and put on such a great show that, in all honestly, it’s hard to say which one was my favorite. It was an excellent night of rock across the board.

I also have to thank the GLVMA and, of course, ArtsQuest for the opportunity to introduce each of the bands and represent Lehigh Valley Underground at the event. It was an honor and a privilege to be a part of Musikfest in this way, and I look forward to working with both organizations again in the not-too-distant future.

Of course, since I was there all night, I couldn’t help but to bring my camera and get some photos. So, you get some bonus shots of the action!
