Tuco Ramirez is a serious Bay Area hard rock outfit. Here they are at 9Lives in Gilroy. The singer has amazing talent, a dynamic voice that swings between Chris Cornell and Axl Rose. The dual guitars, bass and drums are tight – they’ve got some real chops, brings me back to the good old classic rock days, melting tubes in enormous amps making your ears bleed.
Shooting this was interesting, working with crazy stage lighting is definitely different. Unfortunately, I had to work with the confines of the crowdspace – I kept imagining crawling on stage and getting all the crazy angles and close ups I could want. Alas! Definitely check these guys out.
