INDIANAPOLIS, IN (November 14, 2018) – Guster with Andrew Duhon filled The Vogue Theatre with musical magic creating a festival of fun for all the fans that found their way to the heart of Broad Ripple. The multitude of devotees inside danced the night away despite the sleet and snow that slowly slithered through the night without a care as to cold that awaited them. The glorious glee could be felt throughout the house from the second the songs started until long past the end of the show.

Andrew Duhon got the crowd excited right off the bat with a solid setlist of musical masterpieces. Among the tracks were stellar performances of original hits like “Evelyn” and “Street Fair” that got the crowd giddy for more. The audience was decadently delighted by Duhon, and aptly amped up for the headliner by intermission.

Guster stepped onto the stage with an experienced luster that lit up the crowd immediately. Their friendly demeanor and shining smiles set the tone superbly. They began to play, and the notes slid from the edge of the stage sailing into the air bathing the audience in awe-inspiring harmonies. They even encouraged crowd participation with a vote between playing “Demons” and “Great Escape” which ended up in a miraculous mashup of the two phenomenal songs.

It was all in all another brilliant triumph for one of Indy’s leading venues as well as the highly skilled artists that graced the house for the evening. It was obvious that Guster and Andrew Duhon were worth the risks on that chilly night, and they will forever be an inspiration to every single enchanted concert goers in attendance. The show was a glorious musical gala, and another major success for the illustrious Vogue Theatre.

Melodie Yvonne

Melodie Yvonne Ramey, owner, editor, & contributor at Photographic Melodie, grew up in the small southern Indiana town of North Vernon. She picked up her first camera at the young age of 5, and was immediately hooked. Every trip, even just to the local park, was turned into a fantasy scene of her own imagination that would later be turned into epic tales in word and photos.

Melodie spent her teen years learning from and mentoring under professionals such as Richard Young, John Sheckler, and The Grand Conundrum. She received an Associates of Applied Science in Visual Technologies majoring in Photography from Ivy Tech in 2002 after studying under acclaimed professors such as Hoosier photographer Darryl Jones, Jonathan Wilson, and many other masters in the field.

Melodie’s main focus has always been music photography. Growing up with photography and listening to amazing musicians inspired her dream to create visual images that made people feel the way they do when they hear the music. She wanted to help people SEE the music by capturing every magical moment of concerts that she could only dream about as she gazed into music magazines like Rolling Stone and Spin.

Melodie has done numerous jobs around the country ranging from working for bands to even being the official photographer on many southern Indiana Poker Runs. Her specialties are in nature, music, and candid event photography, as well as one of a kind photographic creations. Melodie published her first print book Photographic Memories: In the Beginning, a collection of poetry, in 2011, and has since published 2 more print works, Photographic Memories: Meet me in the Middle and Hoosier Heavens, her first photo book. Melodie currently acts as publisher, editor & lead contributor at Photographic Melodie and does freelance work with many other media outlets, venues, and artists.

Melodie says, “I started out with a Tweety bird camera and a dream and I never let go. I will always love photography and the vessel it has given me to share the images of my heart and mind with the world. I have found that every single person on this earth visualizes the world in very different ways. Some people are optimists, some are pessimists. Some people are daydreamers, and others keep their feet firmly planted on the ground. Photography allows me to show some of these different visualizations. It allows the rationalist to see that it’s okay to dream, it can show the monsters hidden in the dark, and it can show even the saddest of people that there is still joy in the world.”
