311 Day 2014

March 11, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Today is March 11, 2014.  This might seem like another normal day but for any 311 fan today it is the best day of the year.  The band 311 originated in Omaha, NE, in 1991 with Nick Hexum, Tim Mahoney, Chad Sexton, P-Nut and SA Martinez.  More history on the band can be found on 311's website here.  I have seen over a dozen 311 shows and a couple 311 day concerts (3/11/08 & 3/11/10) where thousand of die hard 311 fans gather upon a city and take other with the positive 311 attitude.  The first time I saw 311 was in 2002 at 7 Flags event center in Des Moines and was hooked from their live performance and positive energy ever since.  I was lucky enough to get introduced to the band's manager and began taking pictures for them when I lived out in Denver.  The following are some of my favorite pictures I have taken of 311 throughout the years.  You can view more of my favorites by clicking here

The view from top of Red Rocks in Denver, CO. By far my favorite venue to watch a concert underneath the stars.

SA was almost pointing at me on this one.

Applied Science drum core!  One of the best parts of the show.

This was pretty cool to see Tim give a big smile and wear his Omaha shirt as he first came out for the hometown Omaha crowd.

I hope I will get the chance to photograph more 311 shows in the years.  They have definitely influenced my life and my outlook on life with their motto, "Stay Positive and Love Your Life!"
