03.09.14 Is Ben busy in October....

by Howie

Throwing my wife a 10 year anniversary party in the Philadelphia area in October. Was wondering if Ben would want to play a few songs. I would happily pay for the airfare, hotel, transportation and for his time. It will be a small gathering of family and friends at our house. This would be the ultimate gift for my wife. Our wedding song is Forever.

Never hurts to ask.



05.19.12 Upcoming show at Merriam Theatre Phila (Wed Oct 3, 2012)

Calling all fans of Ben....

My wife (Maggie) and I (Howie) are coming to the show in Philadelphia on Oct. 3rd 2012. We got married 2 weeks prior to this date 8 years ago and will be attending the show as an anniversary gift to each other. Our wedding song was "forever" off the Welcome to the Cruel World album.

My wife and I are always trying to find the perfect gift for each other...it's a bit of a friendly competition. She knows we are going to the show, but I am trying to kick it up a notch or two. Here is where the fun starts - I want to ask Ben and the band if there is any way that they could help out a guy trying to impress a girl (in this case his wife). It would blow her mind if we could meet Ben (and snag an autograph) and/or have him add Forever to the set list (and possibly dedicate the song from me to her) and/or anything else they would be willing to do. I don't think this could ever be topped and she would be so, unbelievably excited...Ben is amazing and this song means a lot to both of us. more»
