A ConcertWindow Christmas - 7:00 pm
Price: Name Your Ticket Price

Welcome to my second annual online holiday show. This will be a festivals event, streamed live from my home to yours.  In keeping with the spirit of the holiday, I'm setting tickets to name your price.  If you're feeling the holiday pinch, you can still come and enjoy yourself.  If you feel like spreading a little holiday cheer, you can always set your ticket price higher.  Most important of all is that we get together, share a bit of time, chat over the forum, and enjoy some live streamed holiday music.  I can't perform everywhere, so getting to say hi to friends, fans and family and performing right on your home like this is a great way to wind down the year.

 

See you online.

Joined by the incomparable Robin Monterosso, this promises to be a full evening of Americana goodness.  No top 40 recycled tunes found here, this night of all original music will take you on a journey.  The highs and lows, as performed by to local singer songwriters.  Robin and Stuart have been sharing songs and stages together and apart, and their blending of country and folk merges seamlessly.  

Robin is a songwriter, penning songs of life and love, death and hate, sorrow and joy.
That's life. 
That's Robin Monterosso music.
Lyrically driven tunes with a country bent and some kinda personal flair began flowing off of her pen at the age of 47, proof that it's never too late to live your dreams. 

Stuart is that unusual amalgamation of blue collar and white, private sector and public.  His music blends the storytelling of folk with the heart of country, adding a touch of pop, crafting music that is truly relatable to all.  Tales of life, love, struggles and triumphs, all presented with the purity of acoustic performance.

As for me, I'll be tucked under a 10x10 tent, singing away from 10-2, enjoying the last of the summer market season.  If you're in the area, I will have my 6 track EP available either as a cd, or on download cards, for those who prefer digital formats.

Join me in lovely Highland, MI for their Huron Valley Farmer's Market.  With growers, crafters and even a flea market, and an ever changing collection of goods to discover, come and peruse the vendor booths, then kick back and enjoy some great live music.

This market concert is going to be pretty different from the usual presentation.  I'm bringing in a few guest musicians to share the stage with me.  We'll be taking turns, swapping songs, accompanying one another, and generally having a great time proving musical entertainment for the fine guests and vendors of the market.

Jennifer Jordan visits all the way from England.  Jennifer is a singer-songwriter and actress, taking time out of her busy schedule to join us, and is not to be missed.

Jennifer Foss, a very talented local singer-songwriter, is also taking the stage.  Lately, Jennifer has been taking her music to a whole new level, and having her perform is a rare treat.

Devon Benbow, a gifted multi-instrumentalist, will be providing accompaniment, and it's anyones guess what he'll come up with.  Able to play piano, trumpet, french horn, bass, and guitar, he adds depth to any performance.

And me, Stuart Benbow, local singer-songwriter.  When you hear these wonderful people, you'll see why I opened up my stage and eagerly welcomed them all to the performance.

Additionally, there is a chance that another guest will possibly join us on stage.

If you've been on the fence about coming to a market show, this would be the one to attend.  

Oh, and the local corn's going to be available, too!

Ever wish you had a say in an album's track list? Here's your chance!

I'm in production on my first full length album, titled Acoustically Me. At present, there are two versions. A standard release, with 11 tracks planned, and a deluxe version with 16 tracks. I have songs picked that I feel make a great album, but before I'm too far along, I want your thoughts.

I'll be performing an unplugged album run through, beginning to end. We can discuss what works for you, and what doesn't. Let me know which songs you feel would be better left off the album, and which ones you want added.  

After you've heard my choices, we can head into a sort of all request portion, where I'll perform songs that you really want included, so others can hear them and make an informed choice.

I'm looking for your thoughts. Help me make this the best album it can possibly be. I'll have a digital download of my brand new demo EP available for active participants as a thank you for your help!

Name your price on the online ticket, hear a concert, request tunes, jump into the discussion and album planning, and get a download of an EP, talk about win/win! See you there!

Join me in lovely Highland, MI for their Huron Valley Farmer's Market.  With growers, crafters and even a flea market, and an ever changing collection of goods to discover, come and peruse the vendor booths, then kick back and enjoy some great live music.

I'm playing there from 10-2 with short breaks roughly on the hour if you'd like to stop by and say hi.

Price: Free

Two acts poured into one powerful night of music. Grab a cup of coffee, some tasty treats, and prepare for some outstanding entertainment.  This event takes place during Wyandotte's Third Friday.  This time around, they're having a rib cookoff.  Sounds tasty.  With that in mind, No Sin In Eden and I will be taking turns with two one hour sets each.  I'll start heating things up at 6 PM.

Stuart Benbow is an acoustic Americana singer-songwriter with a talent for combining the heart of country music with the story telling of folk and the energy of pop. His songs have been selected time and again in national songwriting competitions, and for one night only, he's here in downtown Wyandotte.

No Sin In Eden is an ensemble cast of talented harmonies, engaging guitars and high energy. An amalgam of alternative, indie rock and country in this female fronted powerhouse. Joe, Mandy, Jill and Ken are No Sin In Eden.

Price: Name your price

Are you a Browncoat? Still enjoying the wonders of Firefly and Serenity, years after Fox pulled the plug? Still praising Joss whedon's creative genius for giving us such a vivid world and rich, deep characters?

This is the show for you. Over the past year, I've crafted some songs that celebrate the wonders of the verse, the crew, and the Serenity herself. The fare's what you feel's fair, and both tickets and participation are online at Concert Window.  

On hand will be Dave Falk, a talented local who is much in demand for his vocal, guitar, and dobro skills.
