Last week one of our favorite Denver photographers, David Novin, headed to the 1UP on Colfax Ave. (a bar and arcade with a very intimate concert venue), for the debut of David Murphy Live Band, the first project from STS9′s former bass player & front man.

We have a ton of respect for Murph and are blessed to show this photo coverage!

David Murphy Live Band Group Members: David Murphy, Clark Smith (Dynohunter), Blake Mobley (Tiger Party), George Horn (Kinetix), Matt Weiss (Pigs on the Wing), Ashley Niven

It was a spectacular night, with groovy bass lines from Murph, sexy saxophone from Clark, soothing vocals from Ashley, killer riffs from Matt, thumpin’ drums from George, and melodic keys from Blake.

Photographer’s Notes: 1Up is a very challenging room to shoot in. Low ceilings, it can get dark, and the lights are ever changing. I decided to turn a lot of the photos into black and white to make them really pop.Enjoy! See the complete gallery here.
