Top 12 Concerts Before Christmas of 2018:

These are the top concert photo galleries & reviews from this year. It’s been a really great year and I have so many people to thank. This is not a ranking of the shows. This is just the order in which they were photographed during the year. I kept the list to 12 because I photographed and met so many great bands and people this year. I had to cut it off at some point. I know someone will say something about who I left out. So with that being said here are a few amazing bands not on the list. Starting with Styx, Weezer, Awolnation, STP, Greta Van Fleet, Machinehead, Yelawolf, DropKick Murphy’s, Blues Travelers, Everclear and well, you get the idea.  I photographed a lot of concerts.
