The Gang of Thieves are known for their funky Rock n Roll tunes and big energy performances, so for this session I wanted to bring out that energy by showcasing some of our favorite places in Burlington.
” Volunteering in each city has been such a great experience. It’s awesome to be doing something that makes a difference in these communities in between our shows. So far we’ve helped out at numerous food banks, a Habitat for Humanity Site, and an Animal shelter. At Habitat for Humanity we had a blast helping build homes for those in need, we could really see the impact our work would make on their life. That being said, we’d be lying if we didn’t say that hanging out with a bunch of cute little cats and dogs at the Richmond Animal League was our favorite experience.” – Tobin Salas of the Gang of Thieves
The Gang of Thieves performed at The Church of Boston with Talking Shop and Rebel Alliance, a great show where I got hear new tunes from their latest EP, Mantra. Loved making some new photographs of these talented people and talking about the artist lifestyle.
Entrepreneurs, artists and creative types: we are people who have a craft and love to use it. Communicating your craft, however, can be quite a challenge. Most creative types spend their time on developing and focusing their skill, not selling it. Want to see an artist crumble under pressure? Just ask them to show you their process.
Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of spending the day with The Gang of Thieves and photographing their album release show at ArtsRiot in Burlington, VT. In the past year, the band fundraised $10,000 through a Kickstarter campaign to work with a grammy award winning producer, Michael Rosen, to make an incredible album, Thunderfunk. This day was the culmination of an insane amount of work on the part of all the band members, and I felt so lucky to be included on such an important day for the gang. See the full gallery from the day here and you can buy the album here.
