David Gans plus Garrin Benfield
David Gans plus Garrin Benfield

Wed. Nov. 6 at 7:30pm $10 adv./$10 door Dance  ages 21 +

David and Garrin play individually and together  soulful rock and folk and much more

David Gans delivers literate, improvisational folk-rock with looping in a solo electric" setting. A solo Gans show is likely to consist of several elements: country-blues-style fingerpicking; loop-based improvisations created live in the moment; sweetly-sung ballads, original or borrowed; Grateful Dead songs reinterpreted to suit his voice and guitar; wry observations of the music-festival subculture and the larger world; soulful and passionate political commentary; favorites from the folk-rock canon of the last 50 years. Mix and match - it's never the same show twice, but it's always worth a listen.

Garrin Benfield gained notice in 2000 with his stark tribute to Matthew Shepard, What Youre Hiding, which was used in a production of "The Laramie Project", and nominated for a Gay and Lesbian Music Award (GLAMA). In 2002, after recording his second CD, Nowhere is Brighter, with Bonnie Raitts rhythm section and guest Boz Scaggs, Benfield took up a relentless touring schedule, both as a solo artist and with his band. Some of these increasingly improvisation-heavy sets were documented on the release August Live. Benfield next took a big leap into live improvisational looping, which enabled him to tour solo but with added layers of beats, bass lines and the searing lead guitar Benfields hardcore fans have come to expect. Playing eclectic sets at many shows every year, Benfield has become an underground favorite at festivals, rock clubs, coffeehouses and house concerts.
