Ben Folds at Community Theatre

Why see Ben Folds?

Ben Folds is still the luckiest

The front man of his self-named band, rock artist and producer Ben Folds continues to work with some of the most eclectic names in music and entertainment (remember his Common People cover that featured William Shatner and Bill Clinton?), as well as pushing the envelope on alt-rock ever further. A self-confessed enigma, he prefers to stay out of the limelight except when touring, but can easily claim credit for some of music's most unlikely trends. 

After releasing his memoir, "A Dream About Lightning Bugs: A Life of Music and Cheap Lessons" this year sees Folds hit the road once again with his trusty piano in tow! Having worked on some of Hollywoods' biggest soundtracks as well as appearing on Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton Mix-Tape, Folds proves time and time again that he is a man of many talents. Expect to hear his biggest hits when he lands in your town!

One woman near us knew all of the lyrics and shouted (not melodically) throughout the show. Wrecked it for us! Love Ben. I wish that she’d been muzzled for the show. Such a waste. We saw Ben in Lynn, MA and the audience was much more respectful, in Lynn! I look forward to his next concert and pray the blond woman stays home! ... Read more

Ben Folds with the MSO

When I saw that Ben Folds was joining forces with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, a group we are fortunate to have in Milwaukee, I had to check it out. He blew my expectations out of the water. He is talented enough to have been able to do full orchestration for a number of his hits - Landed, Brick, Capable of Anything, Jesusland and many more - but then he took one of the traditions from his rock shows and composed a song on the spot, giving parts to each section of the orchestra and coming up with lyrics - complete with an audience sing-along - all coming together in about 20 minutes. Incredible. So glad I didn’t miss this show. ... Read more
