You know how when you listen to Grouplove you get the idea that the fantastic energy you feel comes not only from the notes being played but also the people playing it? That somehow the sincerity, playfulness and intensity translates--even into the recorded version? At a Grouplove live show, that feeling is 10-fold!
We travelled to LA to attend the Grouplove benefit show for John last weekend. Other family members went for the weekend as well, and we got to spend time with Christian and Hannah outside of a concert venue. So many people came together to make this happen--all of Grouplove: Christian, Hannah, Ryan, Andrew, Dan and their manager Nicky; the Troubador, John's family, my mom who came to Connecticut from Wisconsin to take care of our kids and the house, and all those incredible Grouplove fans!
The show was created to raise money for the John Toomey Kidney Fund. The feeling of community and support is equally sustaining--so grateful to be a part of it.
Here are a few of my photos from the evening, better shots are coming from beautiful photographer Anna Lee.
