Musical Performances by

Rich Molden & Friends

Rich Molden & Friends is a collective of singer songwriters who have  individually been entertaining audiences for years.The show is best described as “scattered, smothered and covered” acoustic based Americana “songs, stories and outright lies!”

The Ben’s Bells lineup will include singer songwriter Rich Molden and his special guests: Matt Augustine known for his extraordinary percussion skills in the Dirty Martinis, Madz and the Ladz, to name a couple. Incredibly talented singer songwriters, Dave Boyle from the Bromigos whose songs and performances reflect his Canadian Maritimes heritage and recording artist Jonathan Chapman who has entertained audiences coast to coast with his incredible guitar skills and wonderfully unique take on some great Americana classics. Rounding out the lineup is uber talented, multi-instrumentalist, Michael “Leroy” Bram who served as Jason Mraz’ Musical Director from 2008-2010 during the “We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things” world tour and recently joined The Weight Band as their new singer and drummer, singing and playing the parts of the legendary Levon Helm.

And as with any Rich Molden and Friends show, you never know who else will pop in and join in the Reverie!
