Welcome To The Concert Stage

Welcome to "The Concert Stage". I have set up this website as a way of sharing two interests I have - music and photography. While I might not have any musical talent I really do appreciate good music and fine musicians. In these pages you will see some samples of my photography from various festivals I have attended through the years. Over the last couple years my friend, James Fidler, has graciously allowed me to feature some of his photography.

I have varying musical tastes that are reflected in the list of concerts I have attended. Having grown up in suburban Chicago I became a big fan of blues music, as well as traditional rock and roll. Over the last decade I have grown an appreciation of fiddle based music as reflected in the galleries.

The website has grown beyond being just a gallery of pictures and now captures my concert going experiences. I have included a What's New section where I discuss recent concerts I have attended and current music news. The Lists page includes lists of my favorite concerts, festivals and some bizarre concert moments. I have a list of all the concerts I have attended that can be sorted by year, artist and festival. I even have a list of the music that I am listening to in my iTunes library. You can even sign up to recieve our E-Newsletter that we send out on a non-regular basis.

We have embraced Web 2.0 technologies here at TheConcertStage.com. You can find out more about the RSS Feeds, and Google Gadgets by visiting Techy Stuff. If you are on Facebook and Twitter we encourage you to follow us and have our news delivered right to your News feeds.

Thanks for visiting TheConcertStage.com and come back again as we will be sharing our latest pictures and concert going experiences.
