Thank you for checking out Gig Archives. I hope you found the content to your liking. Gig Archives is the final band orientated website I will operate. It is no longer the labor of love  it once was in 2009- 2015.  Within the site years of special moments are documented in  photos and interviews. Gig Archives will continue have new posts as I am the House Photographer: U.S. Cellular Center, The Paramount Theater, McGrath Amphitheater, and the Ice Arena in Cedar Rapids through Venue Works. When approved I will post photos from my house gigs. I also shoot gigs for Riverside Casino in Riverside, Iowa.
