Alan Iglesias and Crossfire, a tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

My first visit to Biscuit and Blues in San Francisco was quite a surprise, that night Alan Iglesias and Crossfire was on stage, this is a Stevie Ray Vaughan Tribute Band and I must say the show was worth every penny.
Close your eyes and just believe your are back in the Double Trouble era, the band is that good.
The guitars, amps, outfit, and guitar strap are spot on and contribute to the Double Trouble atmosphere. Alan plays a variety of Fender Stratocasters which replicate Stevie Ray Vaughan’s most famous guitars including Number One, Charly, Scotch and Lenny.

Not only was the show musically outstanding, the stage lighting at Biscuit and Blues was strong and balanced enough for photography, which is extremely rare for small venues. Luckily I had my D90 mounted with a Nikon 50mm f/1.8 lens which is ideal for low ambient light.
