Pianist/vocalist BEN LEVIN built an impressive résumé by the time he was in his teens: performing with his father’s blues band The Heaters; special guest on several occasions at the annual Piano Stomp held in Iowa City, IA by fellow pianist Chase Garrett; and as a part of the lineup at both the Arches Boogie Piano Stage (part of Cincinnati, OH’s Cincy Blues Fest) and Ricky Nye’s Sixteenth Annual Blues & Boogie Piano Summit. Now, Ben is a formidable musician working steadily in the Greater Cincinnati area.
Ben frequently joins up with his long time instructor and mentor RICKY NYE in a piano/drums configuration. THE BEN LEVIN DUO celebrates the tradition of Chicago blues, boogie woogie and New Orleans piano greats, and also pay homage though Ben’s own compositions.
In August 2017 Ben Levin will be a featured performer at France’s prestigious Festival International de Boogie Woogie de LaRoquebrou, where he will also be celebrating his debut recording release.
