Jonas Brothers

I've been shooting big concerts for a few years now, my first was Elton John in 2006, and I've learned a bit along the way. One of the first things I learned was to bring ear plugs, especially when working from the pit in front of the stage. When I found out I'd be shooting this show from a fixed position a good distance away I thought I could leave the ear plugs in the truck. Big mistake. When the near capacity crowd at Rose Garden arena (mostly consisting of teenage girls) became aware that the Jonas Brothers had entered the room they collectively let out the most head-splitting, eardrum-busting, high decibel, high pitched scream, that I've ever heard, and it seemed to last forever. The pop-rock sensations; Kevin, Nick, and Joe Jonas took the stage, making a memorable night for thousands of appreciative fans. The brothers worked the crowd with charisma and solid, pop-rock tunes atop a three-ring stage in the round, bursting with juicy colors and playful lasers. Also on stage with the brothers were members of their backup band, featuring horns and stringed instruments. It all made for a very entertaining performance. Honestly though, I'm so glad my daughter's only 5. I'll deal with all that later.
