Footlight Club Fundraiser: Benny Bassett

Don't miss this special night of music and storytelling by singer songwriter Benny Bassett!
'Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined.' ~ Thoreau
For Benny Bassett, this mantra could not ring more true. After serving for several years as a singer and lead-guitarist for Chicago-based band Vintage Blue, Bassett has taken his own show on the road. Benny's solo shows feature songs that are "honest, engaging and well-crafted; each one sung with purpose and intent with Benny all the while pulling great hooks, leads and accompaniment from his acoustic guitar." - Radio DJ Bobby Guy, of Kalamazoo 102.5.
In one short year, Benny has shown he is ready for the spotlight sharing the stage with acts like Sister Hazel, The Verve Pipe, Welshly Arms, Bronze Radio Return, Stokeswood, Scars on 45 and Melodime. He also recently showcased his talent at the Folk Alliance International Music Conference in Kansas City, MO, and Red Gorilla Music Fest in Austin, TX.
Building on his successes, Benny released his debut EP in August of 2016. The new EP, titled "These Dreams" is the follow up to the busiest months of his career as a professional musician. In his first year as a solo artist, Benny played over 150 shows across the United States and Canada, earning new fans at each stop. Make sure to check out his tour dates on Facebook or on his website.
