As happens sometimes in this crazy business of music-making, things can change in an instant and all at once! As such I've had to make a few changes to the schedule recently, including the last minute addition of a show at GROOVE in NYC this SATURDAY NOVEMBER 9th at midnight!!
If you are anywhere in the New York City area then you should definitely come by and check us out! It's always a good time over there. Cold drinks, delicious food, friendly staff and some of the best music you'll hear in the whole damn city - you really can't go wrong!
For all of my friends and fans a little closer to my hometown of Boston, it saddens me greatly to say that the gig we had scheduled at TOAD in CAMBRIDGE on Friday November 29th has been CALLED OFF due to a scheduling issue with the venue. I'm afraid there is nothing we can do about this one, folks.
However, we will still be ROCKING over there on FRIDAY DECEMBER 20th at 10 PM for sure!! So hopefully if all goes well we will be looking at doing a regular slot over there on the 3rd Friday of each month. I've really got my fingers crossed for this one... but I will need YOUR HELP in order to make this happen!
Please, if you care about live music - in particular LIVE FUNK and SOUL music - then PLEASE come out and show your support! And don't just come out by yourself, tell all your friends and family. Let them know just how IMPORTANT it is to you personally that we keep this music and this TRADITION alive! Together we can make it happen!!
I recently visited the old WUML studios in LOWELL, MA to help promote my upcoming gig at THE BACK PAGE on SATURDAY NOVEMBER 16th. If you were able to tune then you heard a brief preview of my upcoming single "Friday Night." I'm still making some adjustments to the mix, but as soon as it's done the song will be available for download here at www.bigbenhillman.com, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for that.
Lastly, I've heard from a few people who have said they were having trouble ordering items from the merch store. I am looking into this to see exactly what the problem is. All I can say at this point is that the store is a work in progress, so please be patient with me as I work out all the kinks.
Alright, children... so to recap I'll see you in NYC at CLUB GROOVE this coming SATURDAY the 9th, and I'll see you in LOWELL, MA next SATURDAY the 16th at THE BACK PAGE. Let's get it done and FUNK IT UP HARD, people!!!
