Photographing Chase Rice

I got the chance to photograph Chase Rice and Travis Denning at the Ritz in Raleigh NC.  It was the first time I have ever photographed at this venue.  I have been a spectator there to see the band Clutch many years ago, but never to photograph.  The show was good and the atmosphere was fun.  Travis Denning put on a good show and really seemed to enjoy himself during his set.  The fans interacted and were all smiles.  Chase Rice then came out for his set and the crowd went wild.  He stepped onto the stage and he and his bandmates were just living it up.  I have not seen a singer or a band show so much excitement to be there.  The guitarists were very interactive with the crowd as was Chase Rice.  It was a great experience photographing at the Ritz and I hope to photograph there soon again.
