Ben Kweller at the Bowery
We have been Ben Kweller fans starting with his first album. I actually can’t count the amount of times we have seen him perform. Years ago we met him in front of our hotel at Austin City Limits. Then someone I knew was connected to Ben through their wives. He was coming to town to play and I asked be connected to Ben. From then on Fred and I have had a friendship with Ben.
Ben is honestly one of the all time nicest individuals. His banter with the audience this past week about being a young (13 year old) artist and how he landed his first gig was priceless.
We spent some time with him before the concert and had a nice spot upstairs that he had reserved for us.
Really a wonderful night. Always a treat seeing Ben.
It is cool that you guys are good friends w/ the Heilemann’s.I always enjoy listening to John on MSNBC – morning Joe.
quite the character.
.Ahhh, just another reason to move to the ATX – Ben Kweller and ACL.JLM.
