About

Looking for high quality photos of your favorite bands, both local to Lancaster and nationally recognized groups? Then look no further! Rock Documented will bring you the best band pictures around and a few interviews/reviews here and there. We are sure to not disappoint! Why the tagline “Flash is Off”, you might ask… “Please no flash photography during the performance” is a phrase commonly heard just before any performer takes the stage. T. Cody Strubel, founder of Rock Documented, has always had a passion for music; a passion that has motivated him to get closer to the bands that he enjoys seeing at concerts. What better way to get closer to your favorite bands than by taking their picture? At first, Strubel attended small venues with no camera policies. While attending these venues, Strubel would try to go unnoticed with his photography, keeping his “flash off”. The only thing that Strubel wanted noticed were his photos. After posting the pictures that he took on social media, and receiving positive feedback, Rock Documented was born. Not only does Rock Documented provide high quality photographs, but we will also take you inside the band’s mind as well by interviewing the members.

Kristi Burnison

Feature Writer / Photographer

Far away in a land where they say things like “Yeah, youbetcha” and “Don’tcha know?” resides rock-loving, head-banging Kristi Burnison. Growing up in the land of country music, Kristi had the type of parents that gave her freedom to explore and enjoy different genres of music. She’s the girl you find air drumming her steering wheel at stop lights and head banging at her desk. Kristi loves all things animals and nerdy. If you can’t find her at the nearest rock show, she’s probably rolling in the grass with puppies because she loves dogs as much as she loves music. With a passion for photography and an imagination large enough to fill a library, Kristi joins Rock Documented with renewed vigor for the music industry. You see those ear buds in her ears? They aren’t playing Taylor Swift. They’re playing I Prevail. Let’s get rowdy.

Carrie Winchel

Feature Writer

This metal-loving gal grew up a huge fan of country music...but slowly made her way to the dark side thanks to the stellar musical tastes of her now-husband Mike...finding a connection to the heavy riffs and thoughtful lyrics of bands like Alter Bridge, Stone Sour, and Nothing More. When she isn't working her "day job," you'll find Carrie doing yoga, cooking some weird vegetarian meal, planning her next tattoo, or in the front row of a rock concert, singing every word.

Julie Lyons

Writer

Heavy and Metal have been my preferred genre as long as I can remember. Lucky for me I live in the LA area where lots of bands start their career playing at such world famous venues as the Whiskey and the Roxy. I often visit those venues to check out new and sometimes not so new bands. I have been known to travel to festivals all over the US to spend time with my rock and roll family. Music is my addiction and I will go far and often to get my fix.

Joe Norton

Writer

I might be the oldest reviewer at 57 y/o but, I don’t act it. I’ve always been a Rock & Roll man. In my younger days some of my favorite bands were, RUSH, Led Zeppelin, Frank Zappa, ELP, Jeff Beck, Ted Nugent, Van Halen, Black Sabbath and many more. After seeing Ted Nugent live in Buffalo N.Y. in 1978, Cat Scratch Fever tour, I was hooked on the Rock & Roll bands. My ears haven’t stopped ringing since then, (Tinnitus).
