Band Shots

The second band that Nick's in (other than the Nick Edelstein Band) is The Moody Jews. Last weekend I photographed some band photos for their press kit, website, Myspace page and more. It was fun to get together with this crew of guys. I have to thank them again and again for asking Nick to be in the band three years ago. It was after a show with them that Nick and I met at an outdoor festival, The Atlanta Jewish Festival. Without that show, I don't think our paths would have crossed. Amazing what how a short moment can change your life forever.

Anyway, here's the band. They play Jewish rock putting a twist on traditional Jewish prayers.

Steve, Nick, Andy, Dan, Al and Scott

They play next on March 30th. Check out their Myspace page for details.

Fool's Gold and The Crimson Moon

Stopping the work clock and taking a night off is often difficult for me. But I've been making a much stronger effort since my birthday. (Nothing like a birthday to remind me of what is really important to me) In fact, I worked out four times this week. Yay, me! I even made it to yoga on Wednesday. So, Nick and I planned a date on Friday night. Sushi and Fool's Gold, the movie with Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson. Yes, I got my way and dragged Nick to a chick flick. :) Fun movie... If you are looking for an escape of a movie with no serious undertone or politics, I recommend it. Saturday, Nick played at Crimson Moon in Dahlonega for a third time. This place is amazing for live music. Really fun and friendly staff, great vibe and amazing musicians. (I must say!) I was excited to see that one of my favorite artists, Lucy Kaplansky, is playing there in two weeks. So cool that Nick played the same stage as so many greats. Today, I spent most of the day having a typical Sunday. As my only day off during the week, I usually find myself cleaning the house. I had ITunes cranking and the windows open and danced through the house while I cleaned. Cleaning isn't so bad when accompanied by Michael Buble.
