The Greenhouse Project

"As the owner/Photographer of Custom Concepts Photographics Professional Photographer Carson City Reno Nevada, I’ve had the opportunity to shoot with some great musicians.  Here’s some professional photography with Booker T. and the MG's.  Shooting musicians is like shooting sports.  I met Booker T.  in Carson City Nevada when they came for the charity event “The Carson City Greenhouse Project.”

Booker T. & the M.G.'s are an instrumental R&B/funk band that was influential in shaping the sound of Southern soul and Memphis soul. The original members of the group were Booker T. Jones (organ, piano), Steve Cropper (guitar), Lewie Steinberg (bass), and Al Jackson Jr.(drums). In the 1960s, as members of the house band of Stax Records, they played on hundreds of recordings by artists including Wilson PickettOtis ReddingBill WithersSam & DaveCarla ThomasRufus ThomasJohnnie Taylor and Albert King. They also released instrumental records under their own name, including the 1962 hit single "Green Onions". As originators of the unique Stax sound, the group was one of the most prolific, respected, and imitated of its era. By the mid-1960s, bands on both sides of the Atlantic were trying to sound like Booker T. & the M.G.’s" .( Wikipedia)
