Photos: Live from Daryl’s House at The Wellmont Theatre

The Wellmont Theatre, Montclair, NJ 4.11.12 – Live from Daryl’s House started as a web show where Daryl Hall would invite a musical guest over to his house and they would jam on each others songs.  I discovered it when it was a web show and it was quickly picked up for national television.  This is the touring version of the show where Daryl Hall has invited 2 of his guests from his television show; Sharon Jones of Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, and young crooner Allen Stone.

Daryl Hall started the night with a solo set, and then Sharon Jones and Allen Stone each made a solo appearance with Daryl before all 3 joined on stage together.  Sharing time on each others material, they literally brought the crowd at The Wellmont Theatre to their feet multiple times throughout the night.

Live from Daryl’s House was a fun shoot.  I am a fan of Daryl Hall who I think had a bit of a stigma like an Oldsmobile for a while; it was my parents music.  But Daryl is a great guitarist with an amazing voice who just happened to make his mark in the 70s and 80s.  It doesn’t mean his talents stayed there.

They had a great stage set-up to give it the feel of being at Daryl’s house in the Adirondacks.  The lighting was just perfect if you are a photographer.  I shot most of this show at iso 1600, wide open at around 1/200.
