With nearly 200 shows under their belt, and a great new studio recording, the Ben Shippee Band totes their all-original blend of acoustic-rock all over the northeast. They have played nearly every music venue in their home state of New Hampshire and have taken up regular gigs in Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont, and New York.

Early 2003 saw the solidifying the current lineup of the band with Justin Bigelow on drums/vocals, Dan Desmarais on keyboards/vocals, Sam Ostrow on bass/vocals and Ben Shippee on guitar/lead vocals. The diverse personalities melded instantly to create a tightly fused sound. Ranging from energetic get up out of your seat rock & roll sets to intimate acoustic performances spotlighting the bands delicate harmonies, the live shows paint a picture with each song performed.

In late 2004 the band joined company with established industry veteran Mark Eddinger to begin pre-production on much of their material. This relationship with Eddinger has been a guiding light for the band and has further tightened the sound and performances of the band while teaching them valuable lessons in the studio.

The steady improvement of the live performance has made the band a must see. Performances have been described as soulful, electrifying, high energy, and inspiring. Armed with a well of confidence and their best recording to date, the Ben Shippee Band stands ready for their next big step.
