Playing a gig in Central New York is like coming home for me. The fans showed up even though it was cold and raining. But I would trade palm trees and beach for bad weather if it means more time in CNY.
Pfohl's was rocking into the night. I got to visit with old friends and the greatest fans in the world. As always, the Hurricanes and I left everything we had on the stage both nights.
Check it out: The band and I talked and we have some big musical surprises we are working on for the upcoming August shows. (Hint: the songs you have been desperately craving!). Don't miss the August shows, I promise they will be shows you will never forget. (Look on the Tour Dates page for all the information).
I will start blogging more when I get back to the West Coast. I hope you are enjoying the new site.
Welcome to Benny Blog!

Hey there Benny, I wish you would take a trip down south to virginia. Theres a little place in Winchester, Va. called Sweet Carolines, they host shows with names such as, little feat, foghat, Souled Out, and many others. Sure would be great to see you down this way as its hard to get up north. Anyway, I still love listening to your great voice. Its still as smooth as years ago...until next time...

I've never even come close to being a star chaser, and I've never tried to contact anyone. Anyways, jst wanted to let you know I'm from upstate New york, currently in Virginia beach, been a Benny fan since I was a teenager and I have to let you know, honestly, I love your music. Back when I was a teen I used to listen to your music every day until I drove my brother insane. He begged me to stop. Even though he loves you too. He just couldn't stand the repetition, day i and day out. Anyway, over the years I lost my music and would occasionally hear Into the night on the radio, but I always missed your music. My brother came to visit a couple of years ago and gave me two of your CD's. Now my husband begs me to stop playing Benny. I saw you last year in Syracuse, my brother, by the way, comes to see you every year at Turning Stone and has seen you many years before then. I also have another brother who lives in NC who comes to see you every year. I had a ticket for last week but I was unable to make it. Big disappointment. Many family members brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews, love your music and came to see you. Just wanted to let you know. I still listen every day in my car and I still think you are awesome. God only knows why you didn't make the big time. Just know that you made the big time for many people. Even though I have never met you I'm so proud of you and how great you have done despite the many obstacles that obviously have been in your way. I really am not good at what I try to say. Hope you take that the right way! I, for one, have never written anyone I don't know, but I admire you enough to want you to know. Your talent is incredible, your voice is the very best I've ever heard. Just want to tell you how many people really think you're great!
