Live @ The Whiskey, 01.24.12


The Whisky a Go Go’s been around for almost 48 years and it is to the West Coast what CBGB’s was to the East. It’s a cornerstone of the LA rock scene and that had me pretty excited about going. I’d put in my time at CBGB’s during the 80′s (stop doing the math) and [...]

Cameron @ the apple orchard


When you’re traveling with Cameron, you have to be ready for anything… It’s standard operating procedure to pull over without warning to take a closer look at something roadside. And 2000 miles of driving affords you plenty of opportunities to pull over!! Somewhere between Orangevale and Fresno, with Cameron driving, we pulled over, he jumped [...]

Live @ The Cheyenne Saloon, 01.21.12


Live AHC pics from The Cheyenne Saloon in Vegas. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas… Unless you have pictures of it.

“This is better than meeting Ricky Martin!!”


You know you’ve made it when, after shaking your hand, a fan remarks, “This is better than meeting Ricky Martin!” It’s even better when that fan has flown in from Argentina to see you play. And not just to see you play at the Cheyenne Saloon in Las Vegas, but the next night at the [...]

Soundcheck @ The Cheyenne Saloon


A handful of pics from the band’s soundcheck before their Cheyenne Saloon show on 01/21. And don’t be confused. Yes, that’s Karma on bass. “Mr. Hanks was en route to Vegas from the NAMM show so I figured I’d throw on the bass and soundcheck for him.” – Karma Cheema
