I had tickets to see the English Beat this past Saturday in Scottsdale and about a week before the show this idea struck me. I contacted Dave Wakeling on facebook and asked him for permission to photograph the show. I wasn't sure what kind of reply I would get or if I would get one at all. I got a reply from Dave the next day giving me permission. Then his assistant contacted me letting me know a photo pass would be at the box office for me. It was a great show, I got some good pics, and I am very grateful to Dave Wakeling and his assistant Reid for the generosity and support they gave to this unknown amateur.
