CMT filmed another episode of their live concert series One Night Stand and I had the pleasure of being there as the still photographer. This time around they had country music superstar Dierks Bentley hit the stage. He was extremely down to earth and shotgunned two beers in the middle of his set like an absolute champ. We filmed at the iconic El Mocambo , a cool little Toronto bar with a lot of history. Some huge names have performed there including The Ramones , Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles just to name a few. Sadly, the place was closing down the following day and the Dierks Bentley concert was sort of a final farewell to the place, it was cool to be there for the final chapter and capture the images of the final performance ever held at the El Mocambo. Dierks Bentley's album Riser is nominated for Best Country Album at the 2015 Grammys, oh and he recently performed on Ellen , David Letterman and did the Superbowl Pregame Show on NBC, I wasn't aware of how huge of a star he was at the time ,until I realized I was crammed in a tiny bar around 500 screaming fans that were going absolutely nuts. It was kind of awesome.
