Jay Gates Impersonates in Irwin, PA

Did you know I also photograph events? Sometimes, corporate events with people in suits and ties, sometimes conferences with people giving lectures for big (and small) businesses AND sometimes…….I get to document concerts/shows! This makes my heart sing because it takes me back to my newspaper days- where it all originated. For those of you who don’t know, I worked as a photo-journalist for roughly 8 years covering news stories, features and events just like this! I forgot how much I missed it!

It was a sold out performance…and man, was it great! I met him for the first time at a wedding I shot a few years prior. Jay was the brides brother and he got up to do a special performance during the reception….and everyone loved it! I took a selfie with him before leaving for the night and EVERYONE thought I had met “the” Rod Stewart! But in fact, it was Jay Gates with “Jay Gates Impersonates” and not only does he do an amazing Rod Stewart tribute but he can rock a Barry Manilow as well!

Despite the threat of a pending snow storm, guest filtered in and were dancing in the aisles! You guys…this is my job! If anyone wants to hire me to follow them around on a world tour….call me! HAHAH!


What an awesome show! I look forward to working with you again!!! <3
