UPDATES for SPRING and SUMMER SHOWS

I've recently booked a whole bunch of dates for the band, and thought I would take a quick moment to share them with you here. 

We just recently played another fun show over at Toad in Porter Square, and as it happens that is the place where our next show is going down on Friday May 9th. We hope to continue appearing there at this Cambridge mainstay for good music on the 2nd Friday of each month; you can also catch us over there at Toad on Friday June 13th. 

BIG BEN and the band at TOAD on 11April2014. l-r: Ben Alman on bass, Noah Matlsberger on guitar, Zeke Martin on drums and Big Ben Hillman on keyboards and vocals.


On Friday May 16th starting at 9 PM we will finally be making our long-awaited return to The Back Page in Lowell. I'm thrilled to have a new bassist working with us that evening, a talented young man by the name of Vaughn Brathwaite. 

Wrapping up the month of May you can check us out in Roxbury at a special place known as Sonny Walker's (formerly the C&S Tavern.) It's always a very spirited event when we play there, and if you haven't caught a show there yet you really ought to come check it out. It's something not to be missed! 

We've had the good fortune to play a couple of shows now at both the Cambridge and Waltham locations of a venue called Joe Sent Me, and on Friday June 6th we will be returning to the Waltham location for another fun filled evening. 

It's been a while since I've been back to New York City, but on Friday June 27th the band and I will be making our triumphant return to the one and only Shrine World Music Venue in Harlem. This will be our 2nd time in the headlining slot over there, and we really hope that all of our extended New York friends and family will come to show their love! 

Lastly I want to mention a new spot for us altogether: a fabulous spot up in Salem, MA called Brodie's Seaport Cafe. We will be making our funky debut over there on the evening of Independence Day, Friday July 4th! We're hoping that this will be a really fun night and we really want to see all of you there. We will also be appearing there on Friday August 15th. 

Lots of great shows to choose from, we hope you'll come to all or as many as you can. Of course there will be many more shows to come, and you can always get the latest news and updates on all upcoming events right here at www.bigbenhillman.com!
