“Those boys are unique” (Dusty Hill – ZZ Top)

Hailing from Jopllin, Missouri, The Ben Miller Band is a one-of-a kind trio that combines the frenetic energy of bluegrass, the soul of the delta blues and the haunted spirit of Appalachian mountain music.

Bearded icons Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill were so impressed with the Joplin, MO-based trio that they invited them on tour with them.
On their recent last year and a half of touring as support for Texas rock legends ZZ Top, the Ben Miller Band floored audiences with their high-octane “Ozark stomp” and riotous live show.

The Ben Miller Band's homespun, self-reliant approach extends to the lo-tech, and largely self-built, instruments that the members play on stage and in the studio, e.g. singer-songwriter Miller's thrift-shop guitars and banjos, bassist Scott Leeper's one-string washtub bass – comprised of a weedeater string attached to a wooden pole – and Doug Dicharry's varied arsenal: trombone, trumpet, mandolin, electric washboard and electric spoons.

Don’t miss them at the Ancienne Belgique Club on June 30th!

 

Billy Gibbons (ZZ TOP): “I don’t remember having stood through an opening act’s show in quite sometime but I couldn’t seem to leave, they were that engaging.”

Dusty Hill  (ZZ TOP):
“I’m all for anything that they’ll get things confused. Those boys are unique.”

Werkelijk een topavond, van de eerste tot de laatste noot genoten. Goede muzikanten, goede muziek, goede songs. Vol overgave, publiek mee en ze vonden het zelf ook nog super. Wanneer komen ze terug. Ben Miller Band = onthouden !!!

great stuff, nice folks, excellent audience. effe in NL: nu de Anspach zich ontwikkelt tot de Ramblas van onze Europese hoofdstad, mag den AB misschien iets meer gezelligheid creëren aan de ingang? Alleszins een hit, die voetgangerszone!
