SAVE OUR STAGES – BUY THIS PHOTO BOOK
Proceeds from Photo Book sales will go directly to Alex’s Bar!
Alex’s Bar has long been one of the best local venues to see live music. It’s 2020 and this year has been debilitating to say the least, especially for the music scene and independent music venues. Many clubs are hanging their hopes on federal intervention with bills like the RESTART Act and the Save Our Stages Act. In the meantime we are at risk of losing the very thing that we all need… diversity and artist development. As photographers, we appreciate Alex Hernandez and everything Alex’s Bar has provided to the city of Long Beach and the artistic scene. We can’t fix the Pandemic, but we do wish we could help and offer some relief. That is the reason we have collaborated to create this Photo Book. We hope you like it, we hope you buy it. All proceeds from this Photo Book will go to Alex’s Bar.
Contributing photographers include Jason Cook, John Gilhooley, Greg Jacobs, Albert Licano, Steve Allen, Chris Porter, Bobby Rio, Nancy Huizar, John Mairs, Michael Bunuan, & Roger Krueger. We were able to assemble about 40 pages of images from shows at Alex’s Bar. Thank you to everyone that contributed! No spoilers, but there are some amazing bands/musicians in this collection!
