While I’m stoked to see Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue out there on a big tour supporting a big band like Zac Brown Band playing big arenas, this shoot was a tough one. Because of ZBB’s stage set up with an extension into the crowd from the center stage, we were pinned in a small area in the photo pit stage left with only one viewing angle to shoot from. Doesn’t make for the best shots of a musician playing his trombone while he faces the audience…
