Bob Yellen shoots local musicians, and they love it. He started taking pictures of musicians two years ago when he started dating the country singer Elaine Orzechowski, his now-girlfriend. Bob is a professional photographer who works for CBS Outdoors and LORS studio, but once he started going to Elaine’s concerts, he fell in love with the exuberance and excitement of people making music, and couldn’t help but take pictures.
Gradually the idea of having a show of these pictures took hold. He approached Espresso Joe’s in Keyport, they were receptive to the idea, and a show was borne. Twenty of these photographs will be on view at the coffee house from November 4th until the end of the month. Many of them are of musicians who have played at Espresso Joe’s.
The opening will be Thursday, November 7th, from 4:00 - 7:30 pm. Espresso Joe's is at 50 West Front St, Keyport, NJ 07735, 732-203-9499. It’s free and you’re invited. It’ll be so much fun, with musicians a-playing, good food, and great company. If you’re into the regional music scene, this show is a must-see.
