Marc Winter - solo/acoustic show at My Dad's Place Bar (and Grill)

My friend Marc has been featured on the blog before, along with his band Landstalker. Last week I went to another show of his, but this time it was just him, acoustic. I didn't know exactly what to expect, since I only knew him as a bass player -- and it turns out that's what he did. I've never seen an acoustic bass as the only instrument in a show, but along with his pedal and a jerry-rigged mic, he rocked the bar for 45 minutes. Here are some of the shots:

On the second to last song, he broke a string, so the set had to be completed with a borrowed bass from one of the touring bands. I laughed because that is basically the bass he used in high school when we first met. 

Anyway, I did this without a speedlite, which was a terrible idea. I don't like to use a flash at all, but I need to learn that it is the best thing sometimes, since I need to capture movement. I'll work on that. Comments are always appreciated.
