Valentine's Day with Mercury & 3 Doors Down

Friday February 14th, 2014, by Jeannette Hergenroeder

On February 14, 2014 I had the amazing opportunity to shoot a band at Carnegie Music Hall in Pittsburgh PA. More on them in a moment. Arriving early awarded me opportunity to explore this venue and I was in complete awe at how beautiful it was. 

And now about that band. Mercury was performing acoustically and opening for 3 Doors Down…but more on them later. You can see and hear more of Mercury at or on Facebook.

I had such an amazing time watching and listening to Mercury play. Watching the people line up for autographs and merchandise Mercury definitely gained some new fans that night.  

I was only contracted to shoot Mercury that night. Much to my surprise, as I am shooting Mercury during their sound check, I get a lil tap on my shoulder and hear …."How would you like to shoot 3 Doors Down as well?" UMMMMM….. yes would be the appropriate answer. So here I am in this beautiful venue getting ready to shoot these two great guys and their acoustic set when I find out I also get to shoot 3DD….Not a bad way to spend my Valentine's Day!!!

The energy of this night was amazing for both Mercury and 3 Doors Down. I will never forget it.  People were singing along and dancing in there seats.  At the end of the night I was exhausted and exhilarated at the same time and can only hope for such an amazing opportunity again.
