Ben Smith is the drummer for the legendary rock band HEART and is one of the worlds most respected and talented rock musicians. The Ben Smith and Friends series originated here at Highway 99 Blues Club last year. This has been an outlet for Ben to gather a collective of local and touring musicians, in the intimacy of a small club environment. Each Ben Smith and Friends show is unique from the others. His shows have traveled the spectrum of Jazz, Blues, Jam, Rock n Roll and beyond. Ben changes it up every time and it is always sure to impress the musical ear.

 

This time around Ben has put together an amazing line up of some of Seattle’s top rock musicians.  From his immediate wheelhouse, Ben has invited Brooke Lizotte, (Pianist, singer/songwriter, producer) and guitarist Ryan Waters, (long-time member of Sade, Song-writter, composer, producer). The aforementioned artists alone would be a big ticket show and should sell out most venues our size. So why stop there??!! Highway 99 friend and local music icon Jeff Angell, (Post Stardom Depression, Missionary Position, Walking Papers, Staticland), will be joining the crew for a handful of songs. As well as,  Kathy Moore, (Guessing Game, Thadillac, Cracker Factory), Jeff Rouse, (Alien Crime Syndicate, Duff McKagan’s Loaded, Guessing Game) and local rock n roll icon, Shawn Smith, (Brad, Pigeonhead, Satchel).

 

Starting things off will be Amanda Hardy. And closing the night out for their Highway 99 debut, fresh off of their west coast tour and Pain in The Grass, Ten Miles Wide.
