Local Spins Live: Benjaman James + Earth Radio

January 17 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

SpeakEZ is proud to partner with Local Spins to bring a diverse blend of music to our stage every Wednesday evening!  This series features a wide array of the best musicians in the West Michigan area in a casual, acoustic setting.  There is never a cover charge and every Wednesday features $3 select Michigan Draft Beers! (Ages 21+ after 9pm)

Artist: Benjaman James + Earth Radio

Benjaman James is a Michigan-based, Traverse City-native artist, musician, and bandleader of a self-titled eight-piece pop-funk band. As a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with roots in funk, jazz, R&B, and soul, Benjaman inspires his audience by generating dance-worthy, captivating, lyrical music that takes listeners on an energetic improvisational journey. Benjaman features a collective of seven incredible Michigan-based musicians, including a heroic horn section that has made dancers out of the most static crowds since the band’s conception in 2016.

Earth Radio is a unique collective of musicians that are pushing the boundaries of soul music to a new level. Based in Grand Rapids, MI, the progressive soul quintet has been hard at work recording music, playing live shows, and writing new original material day by day. Hannah Laine (lead vox, piano), Justin Avdek (bass, vox), Dutcher Snedeker (keys), Travis Swanson (guitar), and Hayaman Mana Tzach(drums) have all gained their own respective place as successful musicians in the West Michigan music community and are coming together to blend their unique styles of music to create a musical powerhouse oozing with fat drum beats, funky bass lines, smooth guitar runs, nasty synth sounds, and uniquely soulful vocals that sound like they belong deep in the outer reaches of space time.
