Berklee Original Band Showcase: Jacksonville Kid

The Berklee Original Band Showcase at The Red Room at Cafe 939 featured 5 Berklee College of Music bands playing 30 minute sets of all original music of any genre. This month’s event featured the music of Riptide, luhx., Mafalda, Jacksonville Kid, and Madz & Luke.I have previously taken pictures of Jacksonville Kid at The Teacher’s Lounge and Gilded Fest 2016. Tonight I wanted to get chance to listen to and capture more photos of Jacksonville Kid.  Born and raised in Florida, the Jacksonville Kid Jacob Allen melds together Folk, Rock, Indie, and Soul music into one truly amazing project  Jacksonville Kid was the opening act for the night, their sound could be best described as folk with a kick in the ass!

The Red Room is a small intimate venue, so I was at eye level with the bands, which ended up making for some great photos.  These were shot with my 5.6 10-20mm and my 1.8 50mm both gave me great results .  Check them out below!

The atmosphere and sound that each band brought with them made you want to smile and everyone there felt like an old friend.
