Ben Ballinger @11:30pm, Berkshire Hounds @10pm – 21+ only.
Berkshire Hounds formed in 2011 by roommates Jim Campo and Spencer Garland, with no genre or artistic limitations, with the only goal of raising hell and defying the norms of ladder climbing, comatose-inducing Spotify-playlist hungry amateurs. Also joining in from the start and for most of the run, Z Lynch on bass and Jordan Cook on drums. After 5 years, 3 albums, and a brewery’s worth in their bellies, they called it quits and scattered into the sideman role, found on stage with the likes of Delta Spirit’s Matthew Logan Vasquez, Black Pumas, Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears, Nikki Lane, Isreal Nash, to name a few. Now they’ve re banded, re-branded, and are back in 2019, with their first single “Don’t Doubt The Team”. Watch for more new music this year, and new record in 2020. You want sounds, they’ve got mounds. Berkshire Hounds.
Ben Ballinger makes roots music with an emotional depth and songwriting mastery rarely heard on the Americana scene. A balladeer in the truest sense, Ballinger comes off as a craftsman, building fine-tuned melodies out of roughhewn passions. Ballinger mines every bit of his existence, a lifetime worth of triumph and disappointment and discovery, panning through the spiritual silt for a golden truth.
