With a prime spot at Brooklyn's Crest Fest, British rockers Deluka rocked the stage with a warmly received set that saw the US debut of their new bassist, Robbie G. I was spending the weekend with the Deluka crew before a promotional shoot to share the festivities. The full set from their Crest Fest performance after the jump.
Big shout out to Deluka – they put on a heck of a set that had the crowd moving, even in the warm weather. This was a short set, but still plenty fun to shoot.
The sun was setting behind Manhattan just as the band was playing, so there was a warm glow in the sky and surrounding buildings while the band played in open shade.
After talking with the band's manager before the show, we agreed to supplement the available light with a little artificial lighting. I used speedlights to provide a little visual pop for this outdoor set, just to push the images out of the more ordinary.
