Michael Weintrob Enlists Steve Poltz, Victor Wooten and More for ‘Revealed Concert Series,’ Launches ‘Instrumenthead: Revealed’ Pre-Order

Music photographer Michael Weintrob and his publishing company Magnet Bound Press are launching the pre-order and crowdfunding campaign for Instrumenthead‘s sister book Instrumenthead: Revealed today – along with a month-long concert series to celebrate the work. The new book is a response to a common desire Weintrob heard during exhibitions of his work (a collection of 369 portraits of musicians with their signature instruments covering their heads, which lead to some of the most unique and funky portraits in modern music). That desire was, “I wish I could see behind the instruments.” The new book will feature portraits of the same 369 musicians unmasked, their style and artistry raw and revealed. Portraits include Bootsy Collins, Susan Tedeschi, Mickey Hart, Johnny Winter, Charlie Musselwhite, and many more.

“I want to do my part to inspire people to learn about new music and the artists who create it,” said Weintrob, who photographed the unmasked portraits during the original Instrumenthead sessions. “I love to connect and break down walls with my photography. Everyone has the ability to be a kid again. This book is really special because we’re unmasking the original photos. The book reflects the new energy this year.” 

To celebrate the campaign launch, Weintrob has programmed the free, virtual Revealed Concert Series, beginning today June 22 at 7 p.m. CT with Steve Poltz, and wrapping July 21 with Peter Levin and Marcus King. The series was filmed at Weintrob’s Nashville studio and can be viewed on Instrumentheadlive.com, Volume.com, and select shows on Nugs.net.

Watch the trailer here.

The campaign will last June 22 through July 22, 2021, and books will be published and available for the holiday season through Magnet Bound Press. $3 of every book will benefit the New Orleans Musicians’ Clinic
