Aaron Norcross, Jr. – Back Page Cafe, Lowell MA


2017 photo100 – #16

Aaron and the trio move effortlessly between Rockabilly, Classic Rock with a strong emphasis on SRV style electric blues. He is a strong player with quick fingers and a relaxed stage presence. Aaron is 17. The Blues is strong in this one. 😉

As you might have guessed from the low quality of the image, the stage lighting at Back Page is basically non-existant. My f1.4 50mm lens decided it would be a good day to take a vacation so I had to make do with f2.8 glass. #firstworldproblem

There are times when the folks in the audience are just as interesting as the performers on stage. This sweet soul was having a grand time enjoying set by Adonis Puentes & The Voice of Cuba at the Lowell Folk Festival. I’d also like to mention that she is about 8 inches away from the speaker stack. If she wasn’t hard of hearing before the show she very likely was afterwards.

So long dear friend…

I recently bid adieu to my 1997 Toyota 4Runner. I bought it new and in the interceding years drove the equivalent of 7.5 times around the Earth. In spite of that the chassis and mechanical systems are in good shape, however, the frame… not so much. Large sections of the frame have succumb to rust.

I have passed it along to a friend who is need of transportation and is able to repair the damage.

We’ve been through a lot together in these past 20 years; letting go of it has been a somewhat emotional experience. I bid you farewell and Godspeed my old friend.
