Light of Day – The Paramount – Featuring Bruce Springsteen { NJ Rock Photographer }

The Light of Day Festival this year was a wonderful experience.  A five day festival to benefit Parkionson’s Disease, founded by Bob Benjamin, L.O.D. started on Wed 1-11-12 and ended on Sunday 1-15-12 this year. I photographed atleast one, sometimes two shows a day. Below are some previews from The Main Event, at the Paramount Theater, where Bruce made a special appearance and played for over an hour.
