Ben Folds at Wolf Trap

Ben Folds Five

Last summer, I came late to the party. I remember the Ben Folds Five from my college radio days, but I wasn’t ever really attached to them. That all changed last summer when I saw him with Guster and Rufus Wainwright at Wolf Trap and then I was sold. His piano skills are absolutely astounding, flying all over the keyboard, in perfect sync with the music, never too fast, never too slow, always leading the charge. Sure, Michel Camilo might be the jazz master, but I think even he could learn something from the power piano that Folds plays.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
