In the hurry scurry of getting this CD out we forgot something important--Jim Luhning should be credited for the photos on the CD cover! Jim took the time to specifically set up the shots--then Nikki colorized them by hand and we put them into the layouts.
We're especially sorry about this mistake, because Jim has been so incredibly generous with us. If you've followed the band at all, you know Jim's work. He's a professional photographer with an amazing eye and an impressive professional history. He takes art photographs as well as portraits, and he's been on the road with bands as a tour photographer.
Jim moved to Viroqua a few years ago. He's a music lover, and he quickly made friends in the local music scene--and loves taking photographs of the people who play around here. Jim captures the personalities of the people he photographs the way that only a truly great photographer can. If you check out his work, (he posts a lot of pictures to his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/jim.luhning), you'll see what an amazing shooter he is.
He's also one of the most generous people we've come across. In addition to the CD art, the majority of the pictures on this site are photos he gave us, and he is constantly posting amazing portraits to our Facebook page. And I know that the Sapsuckers are not the only recipients of his generosity. He's a giving soul, and we are incredibly lucky and grateful to have him in our town.
Jim--thanks so much for everything you do for this community. If we didn't mention it from the stage last night, it's not for lack of appreciation of your skills and your generous good nature. Thanks for all you do!!!
