Many of you are familiar with the awesome talents of Florida's Ben Prestage (he played on the same bill as JJ during the recent 3 day Bamboo Room shows) but are probably unaware that Ben has been nominated as the Overseas Artist in the 2011 British Blues Awards.

You can vote until July 31st by going to    http://www.britishbluesawards.co.uk

Like JJ, both being awesome songwriters & musicians, Ben is like JJ in another way - awesome person.     I saw Ben play at a festival on July 3rd and was standing next to a husband and wife along with their 2 children who had driven across the state from Sarasota to see Ben.    They recounted a story of going to see Ben and being told the children couldn't enter the establishment.   They saw Ben & told him of their children's disappointment in not being able to see him play.    So what did Ben do?    He went to their hotel room and played 2 or 3 songs for them.     AWESOME.

If you're unfamiliar with Ben check him out on his website at http://www.benprestagemusic.com/
