Ben Fodls

This weekend, the f-bomb-dropping, alt-piano renaissance man Ben Folds dons his tux & tales at the Meyerhoff for a set of his songs with the BSO, get super-funky with King Buzzo at The Ottobar and put on some comfy shoes for a good walking tour of the Walters.

He’s reluctant to capitalize on the massive success of the open-hearted…

5 O’Clock Shadow- July 22nd

Shadow191

The original artist loved this hour. He wrote this song for it. Not really, but it was a nice break, and the song is really named after its time signature. This jazz artist wrote many now standard tunes and is regarded as a legend on piano and as a composer and interpreter. He passed away…
