the cure for the summertime blues? The 10th annual Blues, Brews
& Barbecue in downtown Allentown, Pennsylvania June 10, 2017 … a tad before
summer but a great way to kick off the season with the sounds of the blues
& the taste of brews and barbecue!
a street scene photo I shot at the festival of blues guitarist Albert Castiglia and his band
blaring some blazing blues tunes on the PPL (Pennsylvania Power and Light Company) Plaza stage during an evening performance with a full moon
I captured August 18, 2016 in Allentown to create this image.
drums were continually changing colors during the concert between pink, purple
and blue, how cool is that!
"... I hitchhiked all the way down to Memphis ... Just lookin' for a place to play, Well, I thought my pickin' would set 'em on fire, But nobody wanted to hire a guitar man ... So I slept in the hobo jungles, Roamed a thousand miles of track, Till I found myself in Mobile Alabama At a club they call Big Jack's, A little four-piece band was jammin', So I took my guitar and I sat in, I showed 'em what a band would sound like, With a swingin' little guitar man. Show 'em son ... Guess who's leadin' that five-piece band, Well, wouldn't ya know, it's that swingin' little guitar man." ~ "Guitar Man" ~ written by Jerry Reed ~ recorded by the great Elvis Presley ~ 1967 This guitar, mounted on the outside wall of Guitar Villa, Nazareth Pike, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania is strummin' into spring on a sunny day in early April, reminding me of the great Elvis Presley singing "Guitar Man," which he recorded in 1967.
"It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing."

Can you hear the cool jazz floating from this saxaphone, swingin' through the hot air of a sweet summer night? That's the image that popped into my mind when I shot this portion of a jazzy mural in Easton, Pennsylvania on a chilly November day. This is my artistic interpretation of the mural image.
this cool mural of jazz silhouettes of musicians on the façade of the Hotel
Lafayette as they literally paint the town. The mural features the shadows of musicians on keyboard,
saxophone, trumpet and other jazz instruments against bright colors.
The mural is an Easton Main Street Initiative public art
project created in 2012. It is a gift of the Easton Rotary Service Foundation
in memory of Ted Pierce, who was the station manager of WEST radio, an
outstanding and devoted citizen. He was a generous benefactor of the Easton
community and Easton Rotary Service Foundation, as well as an exemplary
journalist and key reporter on the Nuremburg War Crimes Trial for the Armed
Forces Network. Pierce left a large amount of money for the Rotary Club to use
on Easton-based projects. The mural was designed and painted on the Fourth Street side
of the building by the Freehand Mural Group of Easton.
