[Jubilee!Jam] David Banner (6.20.09)
let’s wrap it up!
and to finish it up, David Banner comes back home to Mississippi to lay it down!
*cues up some of those Greatest Story Ever Told jams as i work*
Banner was the last act of the entire Jubilee!Jam
and as he screamed out MIIIISSSSSSIIIIISSSSSSSIIIIIIPPPPPPPIIIII!!!! we knew he was there to close it down in style!
this was a double homecoming for him. not only is he from mississippi, but he was also born and raised in Jackson.
this was the first time i’d seen him perform live
if you’ve never seen him live, then let me tell ya, David Banner is a showman
(that cat was playing the hell out that guitar)
ok, so, i was one of the few photographers in the pit for this show. but there was also a videographer that was part of Banner’s crew filming to the entire thing.
well, this is when, Banner hopped off stage and hopped on the barrier that the crowd was behind, grabbing the videographers camera as he did so and started filming himself, leaning back in the crowd.
it was actually a really cool moment!
this wouldn’t be the last time he worked the crowd this show
around this time, a small fight breaks out up front, near the crowd barriers. no big deal really, security and Banner helped break it up, and the show went on.
yes. this is Banner climbing the stage rigging, still rapping. this man was all over the place
heh, no matter how many different shirts he changed into, they didn’t stay on long. even though the sun was down, it was still a hot mississippi night.
LoL, yeah, it was one wild show
told ya that wasn’t the only time he was up there with the audience.
as much as he loved being on stage, we really got into it when he could get around his fans.
this is one of the coolest moments of the show!
yes, he’s f’ing crowdsurfing!
and right before he went crowd surfing he had started singing Nirvana. for “all my white fans out there!”
once again, gotta give props to the lighting crew for this one.
Banner grabbed that hat from the crowd before he hopped back on stage.
heh, i know the guy who’s hat that is. he’s a twitter friend of mine.
small world. 😉
just like Joan Jett. you can tell. he loves being able to do what he loves.
another cool moment!
Banner told security to let some of the crowd up on stage
why not, right!
as you can tell, they thought it was pretty cool too 😉
he’s running way over time by this point and he doesn’t give a damn.
the crowd is into it. he’s into it.
and he’s not stopping.
can you blame him?
yes. he hopped the barrier and now he’s in the crowd showing love.
and yes, in case you were wondering, there was no three song limit for his show either.
all the other photographers had left by this point but i stayed and shot the. entire. show.
and i’m glad i did.
otherwise, i would have missed moments like this.
David Banner ladies and gentlemen!!
and now, the last random crowd shot of Jubilee!Jam!
and with that, we conclude Jubilee!Jam Week!
man, i’m looking forward to going back to one photo post a week LoL
hope everyone enjoyed it!
