Ben Vo Blues Band
Born on October 20, 1987, I guess that makes me a Libra-Scorpio cusp, huh? Don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but at least I’m alive and well. Well, I’ve got the blues. And with the help of a few of my good friends, I was able to get some of it on tape. A lot of it is slow burning electric blues but I threw in a couple acoustic pieces in there as well. Hope you enjoy, thanks for listening.
