The Houston soul-band The Suffers wrapped up their recent tour with a stop at Blueberry Hill and were nice enough to let me sit in and shoot their setup and soundcheck.
The soundcheck shoot is definitely a different animal compared to the the live show, but I’ve come to really find it an interesting peek behind the scenes. It’s not always glamorous, but provide some insights that you would never have been privy to during the evening show (ex: the presidential nominee events at nearby Washington University impacting the wireless devices, performing a cover of Britney Spears’ ” Hit Me Baby One More Time” to test final sound levels).
This was the band’s first time back since LouFest 2014 and judging from the next day peek at Instagram, it seemed like a lively and successful return.
