The Mesa Art Center in Mesa, Arizona is one of the best intimate theater in Arizona with great sound.
Like every show, I get there early and scout the area and figure out where will I get the best shots.
I pick them out and chat up the other photogs as their doing the same and looking in the faces on the crowd they can’t wait, the house lights goes down and…showtime.
WOW! What a voice the Grammy Award-winning Gregory Porter performed at the Mesa Art Center.
Gregory Porter came out to a roaring crowd, and started belting out hits like Holding On, Take Me To The Alley & Don’t Be A Fool.
His deep blues voice was commanding, making you pay attention to him mixed with the bands jazzy flow, it was a great night for music.
As I ran upstairs to get a bird’s eye view I still heard Gregory in the hallway clearly.
What a lovely yet powerful voice this man has. Be on the lookout for his Nat King Cole & Me album.
