Welcome to The Benson Ridge Project Web Site. We provide opportunities for musicians to get out there and do what they love. And that is to perform in front of an appreciative well fed and a well behaved crowd. And get this... they may even get some cash out of it.
Every Benson Ridge Project Party has sponsors that contribute to the events expenses. And after all the bills are handled, whatever money is left over goes to the musicians. Our Business plan is simple: We've spent years practicing...now it's time for us to get paid! This is a Benson Ridge Project LLC event.
Our overhead is low thanks to our Officers and Patrons who contribute to every show. Our dedicated volunteers and family members work for free and for the love of helping others. Many of the show attendees donate those special things that make a good party great (like the fog machine and mirrored ball used at the October 18th show.)
The Project's mission:
1. Share good feelings with friends.
2. Give musicians a showcase to perform.
Here are 2 of our happy volunteers. Now don't they look like they are having a good time? Notice their heavy coats. They are quite warm in the face of our absent heating system. The room temperature maintained a constant 60 degrees. A little chilly for us mediterranean types but those with Eskimo blood loved it.
This photo is of Benson Ridge with his mom. Don't let her lack of a cowboy hat fool you. She's one tough cookie, a real straight shooter and makes a mean mean meatball.
All Benson Ridge Project Partys are full family affairs. Kids are welome at all events. If you brought them up right, they'll behave.
