I was lucky to meet Chad at the Suburb's most recent album release show at the Turf Club. Just chatting with him, I could tell we were on the same page with our appreciation for music and desire to report on the Twin Cities music scene. Chad contributes to City Pages and Newswhistle. I am very excited to have some of Chad's talent also showing up in the pages of this publication. Thanks so much Chad!

If you've ever been to a Music in the Zoo series show at Weesner Family Amphitheater, you very likely know Greg Gibson. In addition to taking great pictures of Rock Stars, Greg is just great with people and captures the joy of many Minnesota music fans attending the shows. Thanks Greg for your wisdom, friendship and interest in contributing to the site! I'm thankful!
People always ask a concert photographer if they also get to meet the rock stars, but it's actually more meaningful to interact with other photographers who share this common interest. I've been fortunate to share the photo pit with Vito Ingerto a number of times and he is one of my preferred shooters and an all around good dude. So pleased that he is willing to contribute some of his talent to the site!
