Greta Van Fleet and Ida Mae tear up Red Hat in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Husband and wife duo Ida Mae (Chris Turpin and Stephanie Jean) opened and they were friking great. Beautiful hard driving blues slide steel guitar work with soulful vocals…Ida Mae is now a new favorite of mine.

Great Van Fleet really delivered. A classic Rock & Roll quartet (featuring the three brothers, Josh Kiszka/Vocals, Jake Kiszka/Guitar, Sam Kiszka/Bass, Keys and on Drums: Danny Wagner), tore up the stage driving the audience mad.

The stage was very nicely lit, but I could of used a bit more white light on Sam Kiszka playing bass. Hopefully they gave him more light later when he’s on keyboards.

For this show I used three 5D Mk II bodies with the 70-200mm 2.8, 24-70mm 2.8 and 16-35mm 2.8 Canon lenses all running at about a 1/325 shutter speed, at F4.0 with an ISO of 1000.
