Front of stage at Shihad at the Riwaka

Shihad are one of New Zealand’s biggest and best loved bands, my wife’s younger brother is the lead singer and once in a while our travels and his coincide. This year he was playing the Riwaka Tavern when we were staying down the road at the campsite at Mapua. Given full permission to run around backstage with my camera, I climbed speaker stacks, crawled behind scaffolding and hung off the stage itself to get some of my favourite shots.  The energy and sheer joy shown by the crowd was infectious .
