Grand Hanlan Band

Electricity filled the night. The air was rich with movement. The crowd ruled the dance floor and the band ruled the crowd.

This past summer I had the pleasure of photographing the Grand Hanlan Band, my first paid gig. As they took the stage the vibe gave way to a retro feel as alternating shades of blue, green, red, and orange lit the stage. The room thick with electricity. The music ranged from covers of Motown, Funk, R&B, to Rock and Blues, with the audience consuming every melody, each note fuelling the ebb and flow of the dance floor.

Electricity filled the night. The air was rich with movement. The crowd ruled the dance floor and the band ruled the crowd.

By the end of the night the Grand Hanlan Band had broken a record for highest attendance at a dance within our community (excluding Gala Day dances). The audience and I were left with a feeling of exhilaration cemented in our bodies and minds, leaving us hungry for more.
