Summer Rooftop Concert Series – June 2013 in Provo Utah

Thanks to Justin Hackworth, I had the opportunity to sub for him in covering the June edition of the Provo Rooftop Concert Series. Justin is one of the founders of this great event, and normally takes some great photos journaling the artists and overall experience; but this time he was out of town on another gig. I love concert photography, and especially supporting local bands and events, so I was all over the opportunity.

The acts showcasing their talents were Jay Williams Henderson, Polytype & Joshua James. Each band was excellent, and each put on a great performance. The atmosphere of the rooftop is chill, as people arrive early to stake out prime seating but continue to fill in until it’s standing room only The weather was perfect, and as the sun set there was changing light that went from bright outdoors for the first act, through golden hour and the deep blues of night by the time the concert ended. Visually, though simple, it was a feast along with the music.

If you haven’t been to one of their events, it’s free to the public happening on the first Friday night of each month during the summer. Here are a few more photos from the night.
