Artist's Description

I do volunteer work with a community medical service group – Harmony Events Medicine – and we provide medical coverage for concerts, festivals and other large gatherings. We are based in Eugene and work in Oregon, all over the state.

I have worked Country and Western, Christian rock, Rap/hip hop, hard thrash rock, punk rock, reggae, blues… and of all the shows, of all the bands I have seen in my dozen years of doing this volunteer work, Franti & Spearhead have the best crowd by far, hands down, bar none. The energy of the group and of Franti, is contagious and there are no fights, no anger, just lots and lots of people having a really good time. Together…

It’s damn near a revival meeting atmosphere. It’s celebration. And it’s quality rocking! Or it’s Franti going solo and soulful on his guitar… he has a nice tenor voice and his song writing is topical, human and loving, with just a bit of attitude mixed in.

If you like good rockin’ soulful political/social tinged quality music, if you just like to dance… give Spearhead a listen.

Shot in Eugene, Oregon at the beautiful Cuthbert Amphitheater. I saw the hands through my viewfinder and caught the light and the exposure just how I wanted it. The hands appear birdlike… or at least like they are in flight…
