The Further Adventures of FatBoy and JiveTurkey

Tickets are $5 online https://fatboy.bpt.me or at the door

THE BRAINCHILD OF BENJAMIN HALL, A CENTRAL MICHIGAN BASED MUSICIAN, whose voice is said to be the illegitimate lovechild of Jeff Buckley & Nina Simone. Ben comes to the stage readily equipped with a high-voltage stage presence, a searingly vigilant voice and a harmonica hell-bent on inflicting pain on your soul. The group is rounded out with a dynamic and eclectic group of local and regional musicians, that are sure to provide music lovers with a fresh interpretation of the roots of blues, country, and jazz paired perfectly with exciting original tunes.

With over a decade of performances under their belt, FBJT has performed at clubs, bars, festivals and other events throughout Central, East and West Michigan. (Old Town Blues Festival, East Lansing Art Festival, Cliff Bells, Cadieux Café, U of M Flint, Blues Brews & BBQ, Arcadia Brew Pub)

They have had the opportunity to share the stage with Ruf Records artist Mike Zito, New Orleans musician Terrance Simien, and the Motor City's own Queen of the Blues, Thornetta Davis.

After a desperate plea from the powers that should be...a direct result of an overabundance of pre-programmed electronic hype currently referred to as music, the JiveTurkey, and his faithful sidekick Fatboy return to the chaos of the musical world. Offering up a heaping helping of an eclectic, raw, bayou- bitten, Workcamp-worn, Jukejoint-ready, bluesy good time.
