It has been a pleasure over the last year to work with Ben Mauro. A native of Syracuse, Ben has followed his dream all over the world playing music along with some of the greatest musicians ever. Currently touring with Lionel Richie, Ben has had the opportunity to work together with some major stars in the business such as Kelly Clarkson, Brittany Spears, and John Fogerty to just name a few.
Over the last year Ben has been working on some of his own music. At an EP Release party back in May, Ben shared a taste of what was to come to a sold out crowd at Shifty’s. The music was awesome, and left listeners in high anticipation for the final release. Home for the holidays, Ben’s album release is finally here. At The Palace Theater this Saturday, December 6, fans will finally be able to get their copy of this talented musicians final cut.
Joining Ben on stage will be the SAMMY Award winning backup band, Phoenix Eleven, who also are on hiatus from touring. With Greg “Goose” LaPoint on drums, Joe Grosvent on bass, and Max McKee on guitar and vocals, they will be joined by special guests Deyquan and Yajha Bowens on keyboards and vocals, Al Cutri on saxophone and lifelong friends Peter McMahon and Paulie Cerra.
Tickets can be purchased on his website or at the door, if still available. Don’t wait to the last minute to share this special evening with Syracuse’s finest musicians in celebration of music and holiday cheer.
