FREE SHOW: Big Grove Summer Jam Concert Series | Ben Schmidt Band
June 19 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Big Grove’s Summer Jam Concert Series is back for a great show with Ben Schmidt Band for a free concert on the patio of Big Grove Brewery & Taproom in Iowa City on Sunday, June 19 from 1-3pm.
Singer/ Songwriter Ben Schmidt steps out of the “coffee house” and into the “barrelhouse.” With the help of the Power Plant Rhythm Section—Matt Bernemann (drums), and Rich Wagor
(bass)—this trio celebrates everything from blues, funky soul, to outlaw country, folk, and rock and roll. “The Band” gives Schmidt an opportunity to set aside the largely introspective acoustic songs featured on his releases, and focus on the joy of playing live music with supremely talented musicians. Digging in with a mix of original tunes and old favorites, the band likes to “keep it greasy”, to stretch out and reimagine arrangements on the fly. The veteran core of the
BSB is linked to many of the regions’ finest players, and guest appearances and cross-combinations are frequent — adding to the easy-going, playful dynamic of the live experience.
See you Sunday, June 19 on the patio at Big Grove Brewery in Iowa City!
