Covid Mask Wearer

Some months back, at Orlando's Will's Pub, a memorial was held for musician Jim O'Rourke. Due to the ongoing covid pandemic, all attendees were asked to wear masks. If you didn't have a mask, one was provided for you. That's where I ran into Erin Nolan, our dear friend in this blog post's photo. (In… Continue reading Covid Mask Wearer

David Bowie-Inspired Makeup

In 2016, after the death of English singer and songwriter David Bowie, a tribute was held at Orlando's Will's Pub. Musicians and singers performed David Bowie's music.

Back in 2019, I attended a live music event at Orlando's Will's Pub. Three bands performed that night: Schizophonics, The Woolly Bushmen and The Wild Tones.

The Opening of Will’s Pub In-House Kitchen

Last week, I was asked to photograph the opening of Will's Pub new kitchen. Will's, an Orlando live band venue, was usually a booze-only spot. Yet, social distancing rules put a damper on both the live entertainment and the crowds. With fewer money spenders, Will's teamed up with local eatery Swine and Sons. The team… Continue reading The Opening of Will’s Pub In-House Kitchen
