& the Ben Daniels Band
Maybe you know Jeff Daniels as one of the most versatile actors in Hollywood, with roles ranging from Debra Winger's college-instructor husband in "Terms of Endearment" to Harry Dunne, the "Dumber" (perhaps) of "Dumb and Dumber." Or maybe you know him as the creator of the hilarious deer-hunting stage comedy, "Escanaba in da Moonlight," or maybe as the man who put Chelsea, Michigan on the national theater map with his gem of a venue, the Purple Rose Theatre. The last several years have seen a new phase in the development of this man of multiple talents: he's been writing songs, ballads that The New York Times called "both poignant and ramblingly funny," terrific tales of famous people and ordinary folk, all with the special Jeff Daniels touch that has kept him in the headlines as one of America's most beloved entertainers for more than two decades now. He's backed this evening by The Ben Daniels Band–headed by his son, who has an original sound that spans blues, reggae, hip-hop, and even jazz.
