Las Vegas based hard rockers Adelitas Way continue the 2012 Project Cinco party with an impeccable set leaving this photographer with one of those moments where you catch yourself thinking – “Damn! These guys can play!”.
The band were simply monsters on stage taking the album recordings to a whole new level. Drummer Trevor Stafford provided one of my favorite drummer shots ever – given that he is playing not posing, I’m curios how he positioned the logo properly. Also encouraging was vocalist Rick DeJesus who after an incredible vocal performance spent what seemed like hours hanging house right of the stage for ad hoc photos and autographs from fans with a constant smile across his face.
Media coverage was restricted to the first 3 songs and from an expansive pit area at stage front. Exposures fell at a fairly constant 1/400 F3.2 ISO800 for the duration of the shooting interval with nice contrast between ambient and stage lighting.
