Play With Your All

Chris loves playing the drums, especially in a jazz group.


Can you tell?


Niece Katherine sent out a note that her Chris was going to be playing a set in our fair city, should we want to come out and enjoy. We gratefully took up the offer and had a delightful time, with the music and the food at Robbies on the Square in Springfield, Illinois.


When we walked in, I was afraid we wouldn't get a table. The place was pretty well packed. We snared a spot in the back. I was glad that I brought the 77mm lens, so I could get some up close shots. I brought the 31mm also, just in case we were at the front, like happened once before.


I got some great pics of the band also, but wanted to highlight Chris today. His expression is perfect. The song allowed for each one in the band to have a solo, and Chris was outstanding. He cut loose and gave it all he had, and that was a crowd pleaser for certain.


Karen says that she saw Chris looking joyous the whole time he played. I believe it.


Thanks for the invite, Chris & Katherine. Next time, I'll bring more of the family and get there earlier!
