Let’s Jazz Things Up

Nov 6, 2017Culture, Lifestyle, Photography

It’s that time of the year again. Early November means Jazz Festival in American Samoa – or at least that’s what this time of year means for me, as of the last three years. I’ve been the official photographer for the Samoana Jazz & Arts Festival for the last 3 years in American Samoa leg. The 3-day jazz festival starts in American Samoa on the first weekend of November, and is followed by another weekend in Samoa.

This also means that it’s been a long weekend for me. I’ve been photographing and editing photos pretty much all weekend. These are just a few photos from the Meet & Greet night at Paradise Pizza  the day before the festival began. The bands all got together for food and drink, met the sponsors, and the board, and it was a good time.
