Steve Carlos

Founder & Editor-in-Chief , capturing the raw energy of live music is the motivation behind Music Madness Magazine. MMM started as a passion project that continues to grow and evolve into something more inspiring. Born and raised in Connecticut; however, I have called the Greater Tampa area home for the past 20 years. I have seen over 3500 national recording acts, which does not include the countless number of unsigned and local bands. It all started in 6th grade with the first one…Ozzy’s Diary of a Madman Tour and I was hooked immediately. Spent 10 years with LiveNation as an Event Manager.  

Rich Russo

Rich is a life long resident of Connecticut and has been a concert goer for most of his life. He started photographing shows like The Cramps, Ramones, and The Damned  back in the 80’s with his Minolta film camera when local clubs had no camera restrictions. After a long hiatus from concert photography, Rich got back into it when he became friends with England’s Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls. They allowed Rich to shoot their shows and he received assistance from their tour photographers over the years. This kindness rekindled his love of concert photography.Rich can be found shooting shows up and down the Eastern seaboard from Boston to DC and west to Pittsburgh and Chicago. He uses a pair of Nikon D750s with a 24-70mm F/2.8 and a 70-200mm F/2.8 for the most part.  His work can be found at his website www.rprussophotography.com or on Instagram @rprussophotography

Jessi Lynn

  Jessi loves music, but she loves capturing the moment even more. Jessi’s lifelong dream was to photograph her favorite musical artists while dealing with a long term medical condition. She has pushed herself and made her dreams happen. She started out with a Canon Rebel T3 when she entered the field, and as years have gone by, with the help of her amazing friends she has been upgrading her gear and sharpening her skills. Some of her work can be found on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/livemusicfavs or send her an email to work with her at jessilynnphotos@gmail.com
