Daydream Nation will highlight our favorite alternative artists emerging out of the Bay Area and San Jose. Coverage of each event will be provided by both S*ALT(Savealternative.com) and Content Magazine (Content-magazine.com). Our goals are all the same: we want to provide an environment for the creative individuals in the South Bay to converge, enjoy quality music, and find good company. We present: Ben Henderson.
Benjamin Henderson-(facebook.com/benjaminhendersonmusic) I don’t think we have enough words to truly describe how we feel about Ben – as an artist, a songwriter, or just plain “dude”. He has been a staple of the San Jose music scene for many years, and when we first arrived in San Jose, he was the guy that “we had to see”….and we did. We immediately understood what all the fuss was about. He is a trained songwriter with the ability to pick up just about anything and play it, or write anything and sing it. His voice is a gift as much as a weapon-in strength and dynamism-it’s a soulful sacrifice of lyric and ability. We were so impressed with him, we actually invited him to head out on a full National Tour with one of the bands we work with, River City Extension (RCE). Ben will be touring 31 dates with them, playing bass for RCE and opening each show. Daydream Nation is his “farewell” show, only to return in mid July. Come wish him well, as we celebrate talent and opportunity. Homeboy ships out the first week of May.
