dang can't believe I missed this... I'm just a bit south of Springfield.
yea, well sorry you missed it too. In Springfield, there is a local free paper called Ilinois Times and in the back where they print the stuff about who is playing at the bars, this is where I saw the pic of him and said he was at the Alamo. I normally don't even look at that section, but did that week. Also, before this website, I knew nothing of Ben. I am so glad I got to see him and up close. What a guy he is, so talented and so personable- who knows, maybe he'll do Illinois again sometime, guess we'll have to pay attention to his web site for dates?
