Title: I got to perform an hours worth of Ben Folds Five songs LIVE!
Post by: Russ on January 04, 2018, 04:49:24 PM
Unsure how active this board is but I wanted to spread this around so enough 'fans' see it. A few weeks ago, some friends and I got together to perform an hours worth of Ben Folds Five in my home of Perth, Western Australia. I had a bunch of cameras running and have just finished editing the show. Here's Uncle Walter: https://youtu.be/Ua6GWlHpSwY

Setlist performed:
One Angry Dwarf
Philosophy
Uncle Walter
Don't Change Your Plans
Selfless, Cold & Composed
Jackson Cannery
Best Imitation Of Myself
Battle Of Who Could Care Less
Alice Childress
Michael Praytor 5yrs Later
Kate
Julianne
Army
Song For The Dumped
Underground

Hope ya'll dig it! This was a result of 2 rehearsals

That's badass, Russ! I enjoyed that video thoroughly. Planning on doing anything similar in the future?

Just picked up on this, Russ - Impressive! Really true to the material and great playing all round.
Is the rest heading to YouTube anytime?

Sorry, yes the whole thing's on youtube but "unlisted", the other 2 didn't feel that their performances were up to snuff (a few mistakes here and there and Glenn wasn't overly thrilled with his vocals throughout) so I don't know if I should risk posting the direct link to it. They didn't want "Selfless" to be out there but... there you go.
