One night. Five Bens. Join local songwriters Ben Kyle (Romantica), Ben Lubeck (Farewell Milwaukee), Ben Cook-Feltz, Ben Miller (The Federales) and Ben Tucker as they share songs and stories, together on one stage, for no other reason than they enjoy each other’s company and they’re all named Ben. All songs performed that night, be they originals or covers, will hail from the pen of a Ben. There are a surprising number of Bens in the Twin Cities music scene, and it’s about time five of them gathered together to prove it. The first Thursday in March, for one night only, we can all become honorary Bens too.
