19 June 2010 – Tonight I photographed Arno Carstens playing a few acoustic songs at The Forum and it was great.
I’ve been a long fan of Arno’s work and it’s been ages since I last saw him play and I was quickly reminded of what it is about him that I like. Even though it was an acoustic set Arno’s voice still dominated the full venue. He is just one of those guys that is meant to be a musician and his work is easy to appreciate as a solo unit or as a full band.
The lighting was quite dark and all blue but luckily the slow shutter didn’t matter because the guys kept pretty still while they played. Great show.
Arno is playing at The Borderline with support from his full band on Friday the 9th of July and I highly recommend you go and watch him if you aren’t already busy.
