Penny Pepperstein

Lucy Lennon

I’m a twice divorced mother of teenage boys.  I’ve always had a love of music, both live and recorded.  In college I majored in Radio Broadcasting and was able to experience lots of great shows at The Ranch Bowl as well as Westfair, Sokol and beyond.  I still try to see as many live shows as I can, and I get the pleasure of taking my boys with me to experience the magic that is live music.  Some of my favorite shows I’ve been to are Prince, Tom Petty, & Alice Cooper.  I will never miss a chance to see Green Day, Paul McCartney, Fleetwood Mac or Matchbox Twenty. My ultimate bucket list show was David Bowie, unfortunately I never got a chance to make that happen.  I love to hear stories about people’s favorite concerts, so follow me on Twitter (@Lucy_OmahaView) and share your stories!

Penny Pepperstein is a name given to me by a famous musician. It will probably be the name you think of whenever we meet. My first rock concert was either Sting, Men At Work or Hall & Oates. All I remember is that I never wanted to be too far away from access to live music! 

I love the arts! Music, Writing, Visual and Performance. I love each muse almost equally. I wanted to be a concert photographer, because I saw someone else do it and I just knew that is what I wanted to be. I found it out late in life but still early in the heart.  I started this magazine as just a blog site in 2010 and it's kept me busy learning and making mistakes and it has given me exhaustion you can only get from doing something you love. So, please, have a look around the site. If you see something you like, tell me as I am my own worst critic and your feedback is everything. 

In the last 35 years, I am lucky to see some of the best-known artists in the world and over the last 5 years I have been able to photograph a few of them, too.  I am a classic rock junkie. My entire mental photo album has a song attached to each song I have heard. No joke. Every one. Well, ok, almost.
