My wife and I attended the comedy show of John Moyer at the Wise Guy’s Comedy Club in West Valley City, Utah on May 10, 2010. He is a renowned comedian, actor, screenwriter, director, and is fantastically funny.
Last week, there was news that The E Center has changed it’s name. The E Center will now be known as The Maverik Center. I am personally very excited about this. It has a great ring to it, even though The E Center name has been around longer than The Energy Solutions Arena, the new name will help keep them from being confused. The Maverik stores have done well in Utah and blend well with the Desert, Outdoors, Activity based atmosphere of the state. Continue reading
The concert for Muse was good. I didn’t stay for the entire concert, but was there for the first three songs as is customary and allowed by the band management. Muse came out standing on a 360 degree stage which had three columns for each member of the band to stand on. They were as high as the rear seating where they could be seen from anywhere in the venue. The arena was screaming, enjoying the music and they played very well.
Our latest endeavor has been to update the seating charts on The E Center website. They have turned out great and has had a tremendous impact on the visibility of The E Center and helped visitors in having a rich experience knowing where their seats are in the arena.
In recent months, the E Center of West Valley City, Utah has launched a new website using many of our photos in their gallery in addition to the introductory billboard photos cycling on each and every page. Being the Head Photographer of The Maverik Center has been a great pleasure and opportunity to provide my skills to the community and help increase visibility of great concerts and events at the venue.

The band started the night with a white curtain draped in front of the stage to hide the equipment and it lent well to the surprise. The stage was completely white, including the floor, backdrop and even the drums, keyboards, stands, and including the band members. The final appearance that topped it off were the touches of black trim everywhere as accents. It was a great show. Continue reading
