What a great night of shooting with The Family Stone at Fallsview Casino in Niagara, Canada. With backstage access – it was like the old days of the seventies when rock photographers like Jim Marshall would have full access and really document much more intimate encounters with musicians. I almost fell out of my chair when Cynthia Robinson told me after the show the trumpet she used this evening – was the same one used on the Woodstock stage in ‘69 when she was performing as a member of Sly Stone’s original Family Stone band. Special thanks to saxophonist Jerry Martini for granting me the access and warm welcome into the family for the night.
