INDIANAPOLIS, IN (August 23, 2019) – Bigfoot Yancey​ brought their one-of-a-kind musical prowess and down-home charm to The Palladium at The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, Indiana for a casual evening of phenomenal music and fun on Friday, August 23, 2019. Fans traveled from far and wide to fill the room for the highly anticipated night in one of Indiana’s most beautiful venues. The concert goers carried with them a bubbling excitement about to burst forth as they waited for the acclaimed headliner to appear.

Bigfoot Yancey stepped on stage to a sea of well deserved applause, and warmly greeted the crowd. The smiles on the faces of their fans lit up the room like stars shining in the night sky the second the band began to play. It wasn’t long before the floor in front of the stage disappeared having been occupied by gleeful devotees tripping the light fantastic. The entire room seemed to sway as one in harmony as the beautiful melodies filled the house.

The evening was such an exhilarating delight that at one point the entire room even broke out into a chorus of howling so hauntingly beautiful that it was a surprise the moon didn’t answer back. It was sad to see the gentlemen end their set, but, of course, absence makes the heart grow fonder, so everyone in attendance will certainly be waiting with bated breath for their next show. Carmel and The Center For The Performing Arts certainly know how to host a party, and it’ll be hard to beat such a grand night of music by such skilled and passionate artists, but, hopefully, Bigfoot Yancey will grace the halls of The Palladium again one day soon.

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.”
