Five days after the concert, and I'm still raving about it to friends and anyone who will listen. A great GREAT concert. An unusually warm sunny day for the bay area, beautiful view, and the full crowd at the Greek theatre was in the perfect frame of mind for soaking up the rays and for Jack Johnson's mellow tunes, along with his sly humor and a few surprises ... the accordian accompaniment was a big hit. Having Jack and Ben on stage at the end of Jack's set, then again for the last song of the afternoon, was a true treat.

When Ben and his crew took the stage after the break, they started in with a couple of no-holds-barred songs. All those guys are so talented, and the bass player in particular was awesome Sunday afternoon. Ben had a lot of energy and was jumping and moving around the stage. Fun to see that. Great to hear them play their own tunes, some Marley, but one of the true highlights of the afternoon was Ben's take on Sexual Healing. Indescribably tender, playful, erotic, perfect ... suddenly the very warm afternoon got a whoooole lot warmer, and couples were slow dancing and smiling and squeezing. Definitely the best tribute to Marvin there could ever be.

And, at the end, four wonderful songs with Ben seated - two solo, then a very sweet In the Lord's Arms along with his mom, and finally, the last song, with JJ. Throughout the encore set, the large crowd was listening so intently that there was almost no sound except from the stage. Pretty incredible.

What else can I say ... except: come back soon!

I was truly touched. I can say that the best part of my summer was seeing Ben and Jack play High Tide or Low Tide. It was amazing....

This concert was off tha hook! Honestly, probably the best thing I've ever seen. "Sexual Healing" was perfect, and "Burn One Down" was utterly astonishing. The concert was seriously almost a religious experience. Thanks for everything, Ben. Oh, and the bass player is awesome. And the conga percussionist. And the rest of the band, come to think of it.

I bought ben's DVD PAin& Pleasure at the show went home and watched it. I really enjoyed the story a lot. i thought Ben was from Texas because of the CD displays on "Welcome To The Cruel World" and "Fight Your Mind." I was surprised when i read on the back that he was from California.

The show could have not been better. it was great to hear ben play some of marvin's songs. it was nice to see his mom sing and play with him. I wish carlos satnana could have stuck around for two more days. it would be cool to see them play together. I really enjoyed the set list. I wish i could learn to play lap slide guitar the way ben does.

Three shows, three wonderful days, I can not say enough about the purity that is brought each day from this wonderful group of musicians. At least there are two bands out there on the road who get IT! Keep it up, see you next time. You were right Ben it was an incredible three days!

Excellent, as usual. Ben is passionate, forms a true bond with his audience, a true pleasure to watch. The Innocent Criminals were great, and I even saw Laura. Was VERY glad he play Forever, which will forever be my favorite song. Ben, your true fans will always be with you. Thank you so much.
