KC Turner Presents
KC Turner has been a music promoter for years in the San Francisco Bay Area and is incredibly passionate and enthusiastic about what he does. I can’t imagine that he sits still for very long at all. He produces a number of shows at venues around San Francisco like the Great American Music Hall, Bottom of the Hill, his House Concert series, and then venues like HopMonk, which is where this introduction is going!
Tim Flannery, Megan Slankard, & The Love Harder Project
I had the pleasure of photographing Tim Flannery, who is a real musician in his own right, but perhaps known better to some as the 3rd base coach for the San Francisco Giants (2007-2014) who helped guide them to win 3 World Series in just 5 years! Yes, that Tim Flannery. The show this crew put on was great right from the start with the very talented opener, Megan Slankard, who just recently played at the Great American Music Hall where the #BoobProject was promoted.
I don’t follow sports (I know, I know), so when I caught Tim Flannery & The Lunatic Fringe at HopMonk Novato for KC Turner presents I did not see a baseball player/coach, but just a musician. The stories he told the audience about his baseball career and his organization The Love Harder Project made me realize how all-around talented the guy is AND that he’s just a nice, caring, considerate kind of guy.
Aside from Tim, the band also includes someone whose name I do know which is Doug Pettibone, as well as Shawn Rholf, and Jeff Berkeley. It’s always nice to see familiar faces, but I like going in not knowing what a musician’s genre is or hearing the latest tunes from somewhere online. It’s like a present for your birthday.
Great talents, great music and great causes. This is part of why I love the Bay Area; you get all of this in one amazingly beautiful and incredible city. Thank you!
