Ben Bochner Birthday Tribute and Song Fest
May 22 • 7:00 am - 10:00 pm• $5 - $20
The Ben Bochner Birthday Tribute and Song Fest will be held on Tuesday, May 22, 7-10pm at Tsunami Books in Eugene on what would be his 62nd Birthday. Ben, a most well-loved singer-songwriter in Eugene, OR and Austin, TX, passed away suddenly in early April, but his music lives on. To pay tribute, local musicians will be performing Ben’s songs, choosing from the many great compositions he created.
Performers include: Rob Tobias, Tim Shaw, Karly Loveling,
David Jacobs- Strain, Aruna Beth Miriam Rose, John Bauman,
The Never-Ever Band with the Mithrandir Twins, Rich Glauber,
Patti Lomont and Friends, Juliet Thompson, Christina Osborn, Tom Clark, and the Singing Heart choir.
A suggested donation of $5-20 will benefit the continuation of Tsunami Books. Tsunami Books is a treasured sanctuary and fits a description in one of Ben’s songs: “A clean well lighted place, A place where I can see. Where I know I’m in tune
Just doing what I’m doing. A sanctuary deep inside of me”
Copies of a Ben Bochner songbook will be for sale at the event.
