Oh to be young and talented! Black Cat Moan is an up and coming Northern Virginia rock and blues band featuring covers by Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, and many others. The band has played in many area venues such as Jammin Java, Viva Vienna, and Brambleton in Ashburn, VA These guys have energy, talent, and do the blues proud with their own style and grace. They really know how to rock out, sounding far beyond their years. Caleb Elliot is a master on his Fender guitar and can rip some SRV as if Stevie had come back to life. Dakota (Cody) Shea has proved himself to be a cracking rock drummer, with un-imaginable ability, speed, and creativity. And the multi-talented Jason Saitta keeps a mean beat on his bass when he’s not playing guitar, harmonica or a number of other instruments.
Black Cat Moan is one of several bands under the tutelage of the beloved Pat Sommers at the Pat Sommers’ Rock Shop in Vienna, VA. Pat works with every member of his talented crew to provide a full education on what its like to be in a real rock and roll band, including establishing set lists, stage presence, and securing real gigs. Pat pulls the very best out of every band mate……and then some.
I had the opportunity to photograph many of his members to add that band promotion and marketing spin every band needs to put themselves out there. If you are a band in the Metropolitan D.C. area or just passing through and are in need of quality images feel free to contact me www.about.me/danielglass and lets get something started!
