Review by [Amy Lotsberg] Producer of Collected Sounds

Ben played a great show at the house. We’ve been trying to arrange this show for years and something always came up (on both our sides) preventing it. So it was pretty cool that we were actually able to pull it together.


It was a very relaxed atmosphere and I must say Ben has some really cool fans and friends. We had a great time!

I didn’t write down a set list, but we did record the show so once I get a chance to listen to it I’ll write that up.

He also played at Aura the following day. The turnout was pretty abysmal. Ben said that he expected that because he’d had three really good shows in a row. I guess that’s how it goes. Rarely more than three good ones in a row! (by ‘good’ I mean, well attended…he’s always good).

There was only one reservation and that person didn’t even show. Luckily my fabulous friends stepped up and joined us for this small, but also great, show.



Aura has pretty poor lighting in the middle of the afternoon!
