The Avett Brothers – July 7th – Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Avett Brothers 2017-07-07-11-5308Photos by Jim Mimna

The Avett Brothers kicked off their annual three-day weekend at Red Rocks last Friday, and a sold-out audience came to be a part of the event. They have always brought quality opening acts with them to Red Rocks, and this year was no different as Dr. John kicked-off the weekend. What a treat to see an iconic legend at such an iconic venue, it was a perfect match. But not to be outdone, The Avett Brothers brought their commanding stage presence and energy to the stage, and even to the seats as they jumped the rail and ran into the audience to really touched their fans one-on-one.  The shared love from band and audience was undeniable, often times you could hear a pin drop in the middle of the focused reverent crowd, they didn’t miss a single note.  Enjoy the photo recap for now, see you at the Rocks next time!


Who Is Jim Mimna

Capturing life in various forms is what I do. I consider myself an archivist by nature. It is not a career choice that I consciously made, but it is something that has called me. I strive to freeze a moment in time with every frame, a moment that can retell its story with each viewing, forever. I also have a deep passion for music and have been photographing and recording live music for years. Capturing the energy and magic of a live performance in a photograph is one of my passions. In addition, I enjoy photographing in a wide variety of settings, from wildlife scenes to family portraits and everything in between. I am a lover of the earthscapes that we see all around us every day, both natural and manmade, and aim to make unique images that do justice to their beauty. Where others see darkness, I see streaks of light through long exposures. I shoot a very wide variety of subject matter including individual/family portraits, event coverage, landscapes, live concert/performance, HDR, product and commercial photography, architectural, weddings, food, and editorial photo journalism. With artistic expression, I aspire to create visual art that speaks volumes.
