Local funk band Big Wheel and the Spokes were preparing their latest CD and needed a new set of promo shots done so we spent an early September afternoon doing just that. Fast forward to today (Dec 27) and Big Wheel will be hosting their CD release party tonight at Loplops starting at 9:45PM.
In honour of the release of Spin Big Wheel and myself have arranged to give away 2 of the CDs here on the site. To enter all you have to do is leave a meaningful comment below (so simply saying “hi” doesn’t count). I’ll draw two names at random on Wednesday (Dec 30) and get the CD off to you as soon as I can (door to door delivery in the Sault and through the mail if you live elsewhere). The contest is open to anyone who loves some good funk. To get a glimpse of some of the songs on the new release check out Big Wheel on MySpace. Their new website should also be up and running shortly as well.
Curt, great shots. Love those black and whites. I’ve never heard of Big Wheel, or funk music for that matter. Did take a listen on their site. Sounds nice. Have fun at the CD release tonight.
Great pictures!! Love the shots with the snorkel… Hilarious! We’re going to try to make it tonight! Hopefully see you there!
great shots curt cheers
Awesome shoot, you’ve brought Big Wheel to the UK they are pretty darn cool man. Top voice mr Big Wheel has!!!
Awesome shots dude. The pics of the guys on the bikes, I think that is when they were on their way to Sudbury wasn’t it? I can’t believe those guys still actually bike to all their out of town gigs. Crazy funksters.
Great shots Curt. You are wicked awesome! haha
great photos! I will be at the CD release party tonight! Big Wheel and the Spokes is always a great show! I LOVE the shots with Jay in the snorkel…classic! Curt has captured their personalities great!
I like some good funk 🙂
But I love the shots with the mask & snorkel, of course! Looks like a fun shoot. My fav is the second from the bottom (BW fence).
Those are great. Can’t wait until you do our family pictures.
Curt…LOVE your work, your black and whites are amazing! You have amazing ideas for your shoots!! Keep up the great work!
As always, Curt, you have produced some amazing shots. My personal favorite are the picture of the group from behind on the bike. I love both the shot in the bush and on the street. I love that they are on thier bikes but that you can see thier instruments, beautiful shots.
