I met Steffen
and Lisa from lisa vegas at the Kira & The
Kindred Spirits concert at Pumpehuset, 18. February 2005.
Steffen contacted me, as he had seen my Photo Site, and
asked me to take some photos of his band.
I'm always interested in supporting
talented upcommers, so I asked him to send a demo. So he did, and the 4 track
demo contained some really interessting music on an unexpecedly high level for
a non-professional band. Add to that the impression of two much kind and charming
young musicians, thus it was hard to refuse the request.
The band got a
notice of only two days to accept the invitation to play at the premiere night
of Club Mini Vega, where established arists together with upcoming
talents are invited to perform a brief acoustic set of new unreleased material,
to do some covers or whatever they like. A splended idea and a big chance for
unknown artists to reach a larger audience.
lisa vegas shared
the stage with celebrities such as Randi
Laubek and Thomas
Dybdahl, and fellow upcoming artists Danny
Goodwin and Dennis
As the concept is to play acousticly, Steffen
and Lisa re-arranged their usually electric songs in two days and
we got a set of beautiful songs, very professionally performed by Lisa
and backed by Steffen on lapsteel guitar in the beginning and his
Gretsch guitar at the end.
Having heard their demo of electrified
rock songs I must say: if you liked what you heard at Ideal Bar,
you'll love to listen to the full band versions! I'm quite convinced that we face
the very beginning of what is to become one of the great bands of tomorrow.
the show I made a brief backstage photo session with the duo, which can be viewed
at the bottom of this page.
Later this year I've an appointment with the band
to make a promotion photo session with the full band (see here).
