Benjamin Weikel is known for his extremely tight and technical drumming. He’s also known for his drumming style. Which is like no other.

Last weekend, I photographed The Helio Sequence, almost 10 years to the day when I first photographed them. (See here.) It was a wonderful show and it was really great getting caught up with these two very talented guys. I am thinking of doing a retrospective on my ten years shooting them. If memory serves, I’ve photographed them live three times and one in-studio at KEXP. Every time was memorable. I have photographic proof.
