Going to add some Galleries of shows I covered last year that I liked.


Another amazing acoustic duo, Ricky Warwick and Damon Johnson of Black Star Riders again at the Diamond Rock Club, Ahoghill, Ballymena. These guys just work so well together and are a joy to watch on stage, playing songs from the bands they’ve played with through their careers and their solo work another wonderful set.

So hard to believe that this show was exactly a year ago tonight, I traveled over to Nottingham to see Rival Sons the night before, early flight back, home, change and a bite to eat and then off again on the buses to The Diamond Rock Club in Ahoghill, Ballymena, one of my favorite venues on the planet to see Danny Vaughn & Dan Reed on their first Snake Oil And Harmony Tour. It’s only fitting to add this Gallery as the guys are about to head out on the road again in the UK for another Tour. Brilliant artists and performances.

Danny Vaughn & Dan Reed – Diamond Rock Club, Ahoghill – 04-04-2015


From my first Festival shoot at HRH AOR 3 this was one of my favorite sets of the Festival and also some of my favorite photos. The Poodles were on top form on the night, tonnes of energy and Jakob was as always superb as the frontman.

Bloodstock Metal 2 The Masses Ireland has become a brilliant even over it’s short life to date. The quality of the bands has just risen and risen, the effort that band put into their performances is unparalleled, and of course there is the amazing prize at the end of it to get to play at the Bloodstock Festival, which not only gives that band great exposure but also appears to be an amazing experience for all that get there.

Here is a selection of shots from the 2015 Semi Finals and Final, the eventual winners were Animator who performed a terrific set on the New Blood Stage at Bloodstock 2015, with fellow finalists Snowblind also getting a chance to play on the Jagermeister Stage last year, again with a terrific set.
