5hour enery 500 race was held at pocono raceway in longpond Sunday and what a race it was!DNA GRAFIX had the pleasure of working with yet another great band…if their name (BIG THINGS) doesn’t say it all their sound does! the band took the stage in the fanfair about 9:00 and stopped people in their tracks…no pun inteneded. playing hits straight from the top 40 this band apealed to grandma dad and even the school age. i have yet to work with a band that covers so much ground so effortlessly. with a four hour playlist and some audience interaction the energy they diplay makes you wanna get up and dance.covering artists such as U2 TOM PETTY JONNY CASH and BILLY IDOL i do believe these for guys are capable of “BIG THINGS”. BIG THINGS consists of MIKE TRAPP on guitar( who is all over the stage, bringing each song the energy to captivate you) mIKE WEBER on drums..DARRIN BENTLY bangin out some base lines you wanna jam too and JOHN A. JONES belting out flawless lyrics with kick ass stage precence. on and off the stage he brought the audience into the show. when asked to duscribe the band nad its visionthis is what they had to say:_________
Big Things is a rocking band!! Playing in SOOOO many bands over the years, we thought it was time for something a little different. How many times have you gone to see a band and heard the same ol songs over and over again? With that in mind, Big Things was born. We wanted to play some great songs, but not the same songs you hear every other band doing! We love the standards as much as the next guy but there are so many GREAT songs that have almost been forgotten about…..until now! Our goal is to play some kick ass rock music that will get you to your feet and keep you there!

Our influences over the years have included U2, Bon Jovi, The Cult, The Ramones, Nickelback, 3 Doors Down, Led Zep, Loverboy, Billy Idol, Alice in Chains, Kid Rock, Van Halen, Collective Soul, Foo Fighters, The Romantics, Greg Khin, Puddle of Mudd, Aldo Nova, STP, Tom Petty, The Stones, Red Hot Chilipeppers, etc, etc, etc.
now that i have you interested you can see them for yourself at the 3rd annual sound for scoliosis taking place at heils place on july 30th at 7pm! Heil’s Place

whats happening now!

This past weekend i had the pleasure of attending a show a little higher in profile than i normaly get to take photos of. along with snapping some great pictures of local band skin-n-bones, i also got take grab some pics of Lemongelli and Billie base from L.A…..BUT Thats not the icing on the cake! i got to be front row(security side) to shoot Steve Adler of Adlers Appetite (formally of GUNS N ROSES)
i have to admit..i wasnt sure what o expect from the ex-addict and his fresh new band but i was impressed. What seemed like a cover band at first quickly changed my mind, with fresh new singles i think the may be on to something. While front man Patrick does a great impression of legendary Axl Rose you definitly get caught up in the energy of the show. although i’m sure the kiss onthe hand i recieved during th efirst song was just to ensure i took alot of great photo….I loved it! i want to thank Skin-n-Bones for inviting me to do photos of this show.
