Orbs Gather for Andy T Band featuring Nick Nixon

Standard

I wandered into the sound check of the Andy T Band of Nashville, Tennessee this evening while questing for orbs.

Markey, the female backup singer, is already an orb enthusiast.

Friends and family of the band amused themselves playing “catch the orb” while we waited for the show to start.

Sound check had the orbs interested, but when Nick Nixon, formerly of the New Imperials, took center stage, the orbs turned up their wattage.

The band has been crisscrossing Arizona for a few weeks and are homeward bound for a day in Nashville.

They obviously enjoy working together. And their music brought out the best in orbs.

I must admit that every time I got an extra-large luminous orb in my camera I showed it off to friends in the audience. Can’t help but share the joy of orbs with each and everyone!

I gave up my rule about only one flash per song. There are too many choice moments to see how the orbs are reacting to the music.

Nick Nixon trained to sing opera when he left high school, which he had to unlearn when he took up rhythm and blues. But, man, he can really light up an orb when he lets loose with his full-bodied vocals.

To learn more about this Chicago, Texas, New Orleans, Blues, and R&B band whose hometown is in Nashville, Tennessee you can find them on Facebook listed under Andy T – Nick Nixon Band. The Andy T Band also has a website:http://www.andytband.com/Music.htm  This will direct you to their Facebook page where you’ll get to hear some soul-stirring, wish you were there, music.

Thanks to the Andy T Band: Andy T – guitar, Nick Nixon – vocals and guitar, Larry Van Loon – keys, Bill Blois – bass, Jim Klinger – drums, Markey – backup vocals.

About orbphotog

Born in the West, I studied photography and painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before being drawn back home to the open skies of western living. My camera is always close at hand to capture changing light and to record what catches my eye. However, it is my recent discovery of being able to see orbs through the medium of digital photography that has sparked my passion for photographing the night.
