Ben's idea for a cool spin on his acoustic songwriters in the round series here at Coda... all three will be on stage at once trading songs, and the stories behind them.
Performing 300 shows a year, including appearances at Bonnaroo, & the Chicago Blues Festival, Willis is a strumming & drumming One Man Band! A wild fire-breathing freakshow; playing an 11 piece drum set with his feet while playing guitars / bass / & harps; Jaik sings and beatboxes simultaneously, live with no looping or electronics. He's shared bills with artists such as Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Wilco, Bela Fleck, Del McCoury, NIN, Big Brother & the Holding Company, & Leftover Salmon.
Ben gained experience busking around America, and during an extended stay in Eastern Europe. He eventually formed the Ben Miller Band, which since 2012 has released three critically acclaimed albums on New West Records - including 2018's Choke Cherry Tree.
Chucky is a multi-instrumentalist, singer / songwriter based out of the hills of Eureka Springs, AR. Waggs plays a mix of guitar, banjo, harmonica, and kazoo, all while using his feet to stomp out the back beat on a thrown together drum kit. Drawing influences from early American roots music, as well as early punk and rock and roll, the result ranges from intimate, often humorous, folk ballads, to all out rowdy stomp alongs.
