Sounds of Mardi Gras

February, 2024

Several days of good music came to Fresno during the second weekend of February. Thirteen bands and several guest artists played on four stages. Good music; difficult photography. The darkest place in the big room was the stage. Because of digital noise in low-light, high-ISO photography many of the images that I made won't produce good prints larger than, perhaps, 5x7 inches.

Not all bands and musicians are shown here. The choices made for inclusion are based on representing the action and general demeanor of the event. Happy people and good times did prevail.
