Ben Prestage At Cafe Eleven

An award-winning artist brings swamp music to the city.

Saturday, Feb. 24, 2024 | 8:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.

Cafe Eleven presents Ben Prestage in their listening room on Saturday, February 24, 2024, at 8:00 p.m.

Combining the essence of the swamp with a rich musical heritage, Ben Prestage crafts his musical instruments from alligator heads and other unique materials. He has developed a distinct sound that has attracted fans "from the swamp to Tel Aviv."

A native of Florida, Prestage grew up being aware of his great-grandmother's all-girl band and knowing his grandfather performed with a guitar in a Mississippi band. His solo performances began at small bars and venues and then transitioned into international tours.

Songs from Instrumental Instability, Beale Street, Down-Home and Down Made, Real Music, and One Crow Murder are instant favorites at folk, Americana, jazz, and blues festivals.

Some of Prestage's accolades include award nominations from the Blues Music Awards and receiving the Lyon/Pitchford Award for his unique performances.
