|Ben Babylon Band opening for Little River Band in LA
Thursday, November 1 2012
When the Ben Babylon Band (BBB) performs at The Canyon Club near Los Angeles on November 10, 2012, it will mark the third time the son of the late Guy Babylon has opened for a top headliner at the renowned club.
The BBB is set to open for Australia's legendary Little River Band (LRB) on November 10, 2012. LRB has sold more than 30 million albums since the mid 1970s, and is responsible for many hits including "It's a Long Way There," "Help Is on Its Way," "Reminiscing," "Lady," "Cool Change," "Lonesome Loser" and many more.
"I have always admired Little River Band," Ben said. "Their song structures are simple but powerful, with amazing melodies. One my favorite songs of theirs is 'Reminiscing.' I am looking forward to opening for them."
Previously, the Ben Babylon Band opened at the Canyon Club on separate occasions for two other top bands -- Air Supply and The JAZZMATICS. In 2010, he joined guitarist Davey Johnstone, drummer Nigel Olsson and percussionist John Mahon on stage at The Canyon Club for an Elton John tribute show, which also honored Ben's late father, Guy Babylon, who was Elton's Grammy Award-winning keyboardist and arranger for 21 years.
Ben has been following in his dad's footsteps, writing songs and performing with increasing regularity at venues throughout Southern California. He is currently working on his first album with help from Davey, Nigel and John. One single, "Contradiction," is available through iTunes and Amazon. In addition to Ben, the Ben Babylon Band is comprised of guitarist Brian Schwartz, drummer Alex Andrews and bass player Robben Bixler.
Little River Band with the Ben Babylon Band will perform November 10, 2012 at The Canyon Club, 28912 Roadside Drive, Agoura Hills, CA 91301-3304. Ticket info at www.canyonclub.net. More information about the Ben Babylon Band is available at www.BabylonMusic.biz.
