My fiance and I drove from CT to come and see the show. The drive was worth it as we were both speechless when we left the show. Ben and the Criminals are a hidden treasure (in the sense that the mainstream has not impacted their music) and they always leave us feeling better about life. Thanks again and don't ever stop creating such inspiring music.
WOW...WOW...WOW....what an incredible performance! I am sorry to say that this was my first-ever show and now I feel like I missed so many years of mind-tingling music! Outstanding musicians...Ben, your voice just melts into my soul. You truly are a talented and beautiful man inside and out. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, come back to Vermont. This state LOVES YOU...could you tell?
WOW! What an incredible show! The band sounded like they were on tonight. It was nice to hear Ben's report with the crowd. There were many, many highlights but I'll name just a few. The opener 11th>well was mesmerizing, wow. Did I hear a few bars of GFM near the end of 11th? Excuse me MR. is always great to hear and it was played very well tonight. Whipping Boy with a nice jam in the middle. By my side is always nice to hear. And Use me brought the house down. The music stops in the middle and all(?) of the house lights come on. Ben silently whips the crowd up into a frenzy as he points to various members of the band and then they burst back into the song. Very nicely done.
Hey Ben, It's been 5 or 6 years since you've been to Burlington, what's up with that? And this show was sold out. Maybe you could come back REAL soon. we'll be waiting....
The show was amazing... After the show I had the pleasure of meeting Ben! Ben, thank you for signing my son's ticket stub from the Radio City show!! That meant so much to me!! That autograph is going in a frame along with a photo I took of you at the show...What a great momento for his first concert!!!
I hope that the band doesn't judge Albany by the couple obnoxious fans at the show, which was powerful and inspiring (nice job by Ben to politely dress them down too). The word on the show is going around, so please come back for a certain sell-out crowd next time.
Beautiful performance. The fans were collectively grateful to have this music here in Vermont the love was palpable. Neville brothers influence apparent. BHIC fans are the "bravest fans" only if BHIC are the bravest musicians. Bravo!
