This Saturday (3/3) and Sunday(3/4), Ben and his friends are doubling down on the concept and presenting a TWO NIGHT event at Gypsy Sally's in Georgetown covering the music of The Police. The lineup for this massive undertaking features band members from Birds For Eyes, Cross Kentucky, The Beanstalk Library, Classified Frequency, The NRIs, Uptown Boys Choir, and many more*. 

Tickets for the event are just $15 (get em HERE!) and all profits from each day go to fund the Craig Tufts Education Scholarship Fund. So grab a friend and head on down to Gypsy Sally's this weekend to do some good while having your face rocked off.


Sting @ MGM National Harbor - 3/12/2017

Sting @ MGM National Harbor - 3/12/2017

As both the frontman of The Police and as a solo artist, Sting was one of the most popular performers of the 80s and 90s, winning numerous awards including sixteen Grammy Awards and, with The Police, induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Yet after the release of his seventh solo album Sacred Love in 2003, Sting appeared to leave the world of rock music behind, instead embarking on a number of more personal projects including an album of lute music (Songs From the Labyrinth), an album of winter-themed songs which veered heavily in folk and classical directions (If On a Winter’s Night…), an album of symphonic arrangements of his songs (Symphonicities), and a folk- and jazz-based concept album (The Last Ship). After all of that, it might not have been too much of a stretch for fans to assume that he had all but retired from rock. Then late last year he released 57th & 9th, his first rock album in well over a decade, and a strong return to form.
