We’re going too fast. The weather’s getting weird. We’re closer to our lovely little gadgets than we are to our loved ones. Crimes that were once unimaginable are now an everyday occurance.
So what can we do?
Songwriter Ben Bochner has decided what he can do is go to people’s houses and play music for – and with – them. In living rooms and backyards, around campfires, under the stars – this is where Ben aims to re-kindle the sense of community that’s been lost in the modern world.

“I felt like I was wrapped in a handspun quilt made of America.”

“I had the good fortune of meeting Ben this past Christmas Day. A mutual good friend, Sue Young, invited us over. The three of us spent hours in great fellowship. Ben and Sue traded songs on their guitars like a family would. We all were invited to harmonize, do back-up vocals, and discuss the songs. It was such a unique experience! I am a piano player. I am predominantly tied to the printed music, This experience with Ben freed me up to just sing and enjoy. Ben’s songs are very spiritual and have a deep message. I so support his mission to create a unique venue and to bring back a sense of community. What have you got to lose? You invite him over, invite a few friends, enjoy, and pass the hat to pay him. When my house is in order, I will do just that. Meanwhile I urge you to support this very special songwriter.”
