Thank You Portland For Voting Mr. Ben Your Favorite Kindie Performer of 2018!

PDX Parent received over 22,000 votes across a range of categories, and I’m so happy and proud to say that YOU GUYS placed me at the pinnacle of what is a pretty impressive pile of Portland performers, by voting me the PDX PARENT PICK WINNER for 2018!

I realized a little while back that I’ve been “Mr. Ben” longer than any other career I’ve had in my life.  And there’s a reason I’ve stuck with this for coming up on 10 years — it’s that nothing makes me feel more joyfully connected, fulfilled, and…well, just useful, than rocking out for and with a room full of happy kids and their parents.  Thank you, Portland, for continuing to support children’s music in a way that I truly believe is unique in the US, and probably on the planet.

I plan on playing at PDX Parent’s first ever PDX Parent Celebrates the City festival, presented by KEEN Kids with partner sponsor Hopworks Urban Brewing.  Mark your calendar now and join me at Oaks Park on Saturday, June 16th, for a day of family fun, giveaways, and of course amazing family friendly music!
