October 2010 was definitely a month to remember. The Ben Rudnick and Friends 10th anniversary show was great. Playing with such a large ensemble is always a thrill and everyone in attendance had a great time. The Lichen/Silk City show was a personal thrill for me. Having Barry Mitterhoff sit in with Lichen was amazing and when both bands played together at the end was the icing on the cake. I would like to thank everyone that attended. I've been getting nothing but positive comments from everyone there. Thanks to Silk City for making the trip up from New Jersey. Hopefully we'll be able to do it again in the future. This past weekend Ben Rudnick and Friends went on a road trip to Philadelphia and New York City for two great shows. A personal highlight for me was someone requesting one of my songs, "The Santa Fe", in NYC. We were happy to play it for our 2nd encore! If you're ever in Philly, get a cheesesteak at Jim's on the corner of South and 4th - very tasty. Lichen is back out in New Boston this weekend and Ben Rudnick and Frienda will be in Framingham, MA and my home town, Manchester, NH at the Manchester Community Music School. Hope to see you at a show soon.
