Knoxville, you missed out on a great musical experience with the legendary Jeff Daniels and his son’s band, The Ben Daniels Band.
The turnout for the show was low but the energy – both from the crowd and Daniels – was the perfect level for his music. The consummate professional, Jeff performed just as he would to a sold out crowd in Madison Square Gardens. Funny. Precise. The band tight with much of the set list came from his latest album, “Days Like These,” but Daniels’ earlier albums were well represented, too.
Arguably the two most poignant points of the show was when Jeff had Amanda Merte join him on the

sad, “Back When You Were Into Me” and Jeff and his son, Ben, closing the show with a father/son song about watching Ben grow up. At the end of it, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. When I chatted with Daniels after the show, I asked when he was going to record the song. He indicated that it would be on a CD scheduled to be released in November. Stay tuned!
Due to Jeff Daniels’ heavy acting schedule in the future, there will be limited opportunities to catch one of his musical performances. To catch one of his musical performances is definitely a rare and very enjoyable treat so do so if you get the chance. You won’t regret it and you’ll have yet one more reason to be a Jeff Daniels fan.
