What a great first effort! Pretty photogenic subject matter with the nice aqua blue colors and costumes. Looks like a lot of fun, I see kids in the crowd looking very happy. Some men should just not be wearing tights though! One suggestions, straighten out #2 so it's not leaning...

Thanks BushWacker! It was a lot of fun, the audience really gets involved and plays along with what is going on stage. Kind of an Aquabats Cult following I think. Here is a shot of the audience...

Just an idea of audience participation, this 6 yr old girl got her first stage dive from the Bat Commander. She is landing on an inflatable pool pizza slice held by the crowd. Several kids were crowd surfing on the pizza slices too. Really fun stuff!

I do go to a Lot of shows but I've never been to anything like this one! Love the crowd shots, they really provide a sense of the event.

Thanks Benon!

I was lucky my daughter was on the surf team with the lead singers son so we got to know Christian the lead singer. Very nice people!

Wow, 19 shows that is crazy cool! My co-worker saw them in the mid-90's so I brought him to see them that night. He had some nice blast from the past memories.
