Last night I had the privilege of photographing the 1st benefit for the Moog Foundation at the Orange Peel, put on by the Asheville Affiliates. It was an wonderful event showcasing the life and mind of legendary synthesizer inventor and electronic music innovator Bob Moog, who has his production facilities here in Asheville. The Moog Foundation is raising money for scholastic musical programs, scholarships and a hands on electronic museum.
The several hundred people in attendance got to play the theremin, Moog synthesizers, keyboards, Moogerfoogers, and witness a live "studio recording" take place on stage, all while enjoying complimentary food and beverage. To cap the evening off, local band Telepath rocked out with a great set of music to send us on our way.
Here are a couple of the images I captured last night. To learn more or make a donation, please go to : http://www.moogfoundation.com
