Okay, I admit that I was skeptical going into this show. Prior to this gig, I had never seen My Morning Jacket perform live, but I did see Jim James on his last solo tour when he passed through Asheville, and I just couldn't get into it.  Truth be told, I left the Orange Peel half-way through his set, long before he apparently got into some acoustic MMJ material (which I always love hearing on various Pandora stations). So, my expectations weren't very high as I walked into the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium and found my way to the photo pit.

Lo and behold, by the time I finally left the venue, I was buzzing like everyone else as I had just seen one of the most memorable shows of 2016 in Asheville. Not only was it a fantastic production of music, but it was also a fun show to photograph. I hope that the energy of Jim James and band comes through in these photos. It was quite a show, and I now look forward to seeing MMJ again in 2017.
