Duo Show Description

 

Ben and his daughter Jessica have a rich soothing sound with flavours of jazz, folk and roots. They are equally at home in both small community halls and large performing arts venues, and are happy to adjust their set lists for church concerts. Jessica has a strong influence on their powerful yet mellow sound, so it is not western in style, although it's not uncommon for some of Ben's music to slip in. They perform on a wide array of instruments including acoustic guitars, viola, cello, Dobro, mandolin and pennywhistle.

 

The show is designed for an intimate concert feel with the lights dimmed and the bar closed for the performance, providing that personal connection with Ben and Jessica.  

 

 

Technical and Space Requirements

 

We supply sound, stage lighting, screen and projector. We require only two separate circuits of 110V electricity on stage.  Although we have performed outside occasionally (such as music festivals), we prefer not to take that type of venue because of lack of screen visibility and  acoustic instrument temperature/humidity issues.

We have a large variety of gift items featuring Ben's artwork and their music available for sale.  If possible, we would request a 4 x 6' space during Jan-Sept, and a 4 x 10' space during the Christmas season (October-Dec) with access to a power outlet.  We are self contained with  all tables and lights needed.  If  you are doing a fundraiser or offering a door prize, we are pleased to donate a packaged print and/or CD.  Just talk to  Ben's wife Sharmon when we get there.

 

Our show comes in two lengths; one hour with no intermission, and an hour and a half plus intermission, your choice.

 

We supply poster templates, photos and bio information, available below.  Feel free to use this information to help promote your event. Ben and Jessica are available for media interviews as well.

Total cost includes  the booking fee, travel and 2 rooms (billeted or hotel).  To book Ben and Jessica, simply call or email us with your event information and request for rates and date availabilities. We will complete a simple booking contract, email it back to you, and when your deposit cheque or e-transfer has arrived back at our office with your signed copy of the contract the booking will be confirmed.
