Grand Funk Railroad

edgeKnown as “The American Band”, Grand Funk Railroad came to Bettendorf, IA and blasted out hit after hit. My favorite “Do the Locomotive” was joined by many others and concluded with the most well known one “We’re an American Band”. They played at the Waterfront Convention Center which has a very intimate setting for concert goers ... every seat is a great one ... and if you want to get up close and personal with the band, just walk up stage side and you are literally on top of the action. Great fun on Saturday Night. I captured a few photos ... enjoy!

Celtic Festival / Rita Horses

edgeRita asked me to come capture a few photos of her Gypsy Vanner Horses during the Celtic festival. They are beautiful!

SHCC Team Play and Cardboard Regatta

edgeBrian Soucinek tees off during a 4 team playoff to determine 3rd place at Short Hill’s team play event. Ben Hansen’s team won the event going away ...
The extended playoff delayed the annual cardboard regatta. It was a beautiful day so no one minded. Another great fun event at the pool.
I grabbed a few photos of golf, cardboard boat races and people around the pool. Take a look.

Glow Run

edgeSeems like we’re coming up with all kinds of excuses to party. Here’s another one. The “Glow Run” in downtown Moline. The race started fairly informally with three waves of runners. Wave 1 - “Runners”. Wave 2 - “Walkers”, and Wave 3 - “Partiers”. I was surprised that anyone started in wave 1 or 2 since they all seemed to be “Partiers”. Check out a few photos of the evening.

Summerfest

edge
It sure looks like my friend Jenn there in the band “August”. They are performing as part of the “Big Gig” battle of the bands at Summerfest. Summerfest is a fun couple of weeks of music in Milwaukee and I try to get there with my friend Nik for a day every year. This year we saw a number of great bands and finished up with one of my all time favorites: Reo Speedwagon!!

Enjoy the photos.
