Ben Kweller at the Bowery

benkwellerWe 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.

Really a wonderful night.  Always a treat seeing Ben.
