Photographer Down!

Often times photographers can get a better view of the dance floor by coming on stage while the band is performing. This is usually not a problem for us, that is not until it’s done to the point of being a distraction.

Some photographers ask for permission to come on stage, while some take it upon themselves to do so. One particularly aggressive photographer was taking it upon himself to do whatever he deemed necessary to get the shot. We gave him several warnings that we do a lot of choreography, and that he should ask before coming on stage. My mother use to say, ” a hard head, makes a soft ass”. I believe that’s self explanatory. Well, he did it again. He found what he thought was a clear spot, which was clear at the time, but he didn’t know what was coming in about 10 seconds. I knew what was coming and saw him standing there, but I was singing. There was nothing I could do. In this particular choreography sequence, the horns are facing one direction, and moving in another, which meant they couldn’t see him. And here it comes….wait for it, wait for it, wait for it, BAMMM! Photographer down!!

Funny thing is, the horns didn’t miss a beat. Meanwhile the photographer is trying to gather himself. Good thing is, the camera never hit the ground. And the moral of the story is, make sure it’s okay to come on stage.
