Some friends and I went to Southside Johnny's on a Sunday afternoon to hear the Martini Shot Band play. The band was playing to benefit a Memorial Scholarship to the Colorado Springs Children's Chorale and Mesa Ridge High School in memory of Noelle Fleming.There was a large crowd though I'm not sure if they were all there for the food or the music or the memorial. There was a good selection of Noelle's friends from the Chorale. To raise funds, they were selling raffle tickets, for which local businesses had donated prizes. The prizes were pretty good and the cause was also good.
It was really good to see the band again and their music was as good as ever. It was good food, good music and good company, and I took some pictures too, although the way the stage was located resulted in a backlighting condition that made it tricky to get good shots. I tried out some different camera angles but ended up letting the camera adjust for the backlighting for me in most of the ones that turned out well.
I did not keep a set list on this afternoon. There was a good mix of Martini Shot originals and cover tunes, and everyone was having a good time.
