Last night I went to a 4th of July “Rooftop Party” in Redbank.
The party was literally on a rooftop and it was a very fun setting especially being able to see the fireworks so well! The invite said:
Come and enjoy the Red Bank Fireworks on Lorene’s tropical rooftop. Rock to the music by the Jonzes. Create a moment of stardom at Guitar Hero or bowl a few frames in the Wii room. Feast on the fabulous Pig Roast with all the fixins. Bring your favorite bottle for the Ice Luge. Sangria and Beer will be served. We hope to see you there.
The hostesses are friend with my friend Tiffany. Tiffany promised that I’d bring my camera along so I did – even though I didn’t know anyone there. I decided that it didn’t matter if I knew anyone or not and took a lot of photos (I figured the hostesses would appreciate having their party documented..even if I was scare of the people with the water guns squirting my beloved camera).
On the way to the party camera phone photo!!
We got there just in time to see the fireworks. The only fireworks photo captured was a lousy one from my camera phone LOL!

The Jonzes were great! At one point Meleah thought they had turned on a Led Zeppelin CD because they sounded so amazing! If you’d like to check them out – see their myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/thejonzesband
If you’d like to hear a piece of them live see my short video clip below:
Or take a look at Meleah’s video which has a lot more of the song:
Here is one photo where I turned off the flash, bumped the camera up to some ridiculously high ISO and took some of the part goers dancing. I think they turned out pretty neat:
Tiffany and one of the hostesses – Lorene:
And the 2nd host, Bonnie, and her husband:
Lorene’s dad got them on stage!
Here is a video Meleah took of them rocking out on stage:
Lorene testing out the ICE LUGE:
Tiffany & Lorene entertained us with some Karaoke with a Fergie song even though Tiffany didn’t know the words. :)
If I have time I’ll upload the video to UTube of them singing and add it here if it came out okay…
Me and my girls!
It wouldn’t be me if I didn’t find a way to at least get into a few photos…(even if that means handing my camera off to someone else…which most of the time means that they don’t realize they have to look through the viewfinder to take the photo :))
And Meleah handled the camera like a pro :)
Good job Tiffany! You done good with the next two! :)
And one last one Tiffany took of yours truly. I’m sure she just wanted to show off her skills on my hair coloring, highlights, and haircut that she gave mes yesterday afternoon! LOL :D
There were so many more photos but this is how I’ll sum up my night out with my friends and the trusty Nikon.
