I am a photographer from Nashville,TN.  Back in the 1970's I had a deal with the local rock & roll promoter if it was a general admission show they would let me in early, if it was reserved seating they would get me in within the first 5 rows.  At first I borrowed my father's camera, then with my own money I bought my own camera.  I went to all the rock & roll shows and took photos.  I loved the music and I wanted to capture it.  I made no money at that time off photography, I did it because I loved doing it.  
I am 61 years old now and I have wanted to do this show for a long time.  I have approached galleries who didn't want it without even seeing it.  Now I have found a small gallery in East Nashville. That will let me do the show this April.  Now I have to get it printed and ready to be hung.  This is what the funds will be used for.  I have priced out how much it will cost to print and frame the images, like I would like to have them shown.  This show hangs in April.  I hope to get the money together this month.  To have time to print and frame the images.  
This show means quite a bit to me.  As a donation bonus if you donate $50 or more I will let you pick an image and make you a 8X10 print.  Thank you to everyone who is helping me to make this happen.   Please Donate to my little show.  Thank you!!!

In theory this is the last post you should see from this Go Fund Me account. Not all the images that I have posted up here will be in the show. The gallery is tiny and I had to chose which ones. This Frank Zappa will be in the show. If any last minute donors wish to contribute today, that is wonderful. Thank you to all. Who have helped to make this show a reality. I want to invite one and all to see the show. If you are in town on the 9th of April there will be a reception from 6 to 9 in the evening. The Go Fund Me account runs out tomorrow. I will take this down after that. Thank you to one all again.

Good morning to everybody who has contributed to this Go Fund Me. My goal has been reached. Thank you one and all. The show will be during the month of April. It will be at a small gallery in East Nashville, called Modern East Gallery at1006 Fatherland St. #203. I hope to see all of you there. The opening will be on the evening of the 9th of April. The gallery is only open on Friday and Saturday from Noon to Six. Except on the 9th there is an Art Crawl and that is when we will do the opening. Thank you one and all.

This is John Mayall. He headlined a show at the Fairgrounds race track. Unlike the other shows that were at the racetrack this group had a very small stage. So most the people were on the racetrack to watch the show. To be truthful I don't think the show did very well and I think the promoters went away. They were a group in Belle Meade and I don't remember their names.
We are coming down to wire now. Today is the 7th and the Go Fund Me account comes down on the 10th. Thank you to all who have donated. I appreciate more than you know.

Eric Clapton again the Municipal Auditorium. Long ago and far far away. The dangers of smoking were known at the time, as they are now. I hope he has given up the habit since that time.
Ok, today is the 6th of March, only a few days left on this Go Fund Me account. Please contribute, I only have a little ways to go. Thank you again to everybody who has contributed to this. It is a dream I have had for a long time.
