Red Hot Chili Peppers

I've had the opportunity to work with the Peppers a few times in the past couple months. For their featured Hoppus On Music episode, Fuse Presents Red Hot Chili Peppers Live at the Roxy and On The Record: Red Hot Chili Peppers. Here's a couple behind the scenes shots of those escapades.

The elusive crew pass, I'm not going to lie, no matter how many of these passes I collect- I still get stoked every time I get a new one. One of these days, I'll post a picture of the huge box I have full of them. They are the best keepsakes of the best gigs.

Huge billboard on the side of the Roxy.

I fell in love with the belt wall in the headliner dressing room.


Surprisingly this was my first time at the Roxy.

Setting up the stage. My day started at 7am in a cushy hotel room, the crew dudes started at the same time and their work did not end till hours after the show.

My view- keeping an eye on talent and walking backwards simultaneously is a gift.

Juliya's mean shoe game.

When they started loading in the crowd and my day was ending.

On The Record: Red Hot Chili Peppers

Fancy Rug.

Fancy chandelier.
Fancy location, does not always equal fancy station set up.

I do Mark's show when we film on the West Coast, here's a clip from Chad & Flea's interview on Hoppus On Music. 
Most of the time when I'm working with dudes, the product usage is very minimal. Here are some of my male grooming essentials that I couldn't live without. 
Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets

I can't tell you how many of my clients have walked away with this in their pockets. But it really is my favorite and the price point is very affordable, so it's worth it to pick up a few for the kit and let clients who love it walk away with it.

This is my favorite liquid foundation for men and women- it's perfect for spot coverage, to add a bit of color and it never looks like make-up, just skin and when you are working with dudes, it's essential.

Cover FX Matte FX powder is a newer addition to my kit, but it's perfect for touch-ups that are time sensitive and when you've only got 10 seconds to get somebody camera ready.

OCC Skin: Primer is the male host's BFF.
