The best way to describe Ben Cook-Feltz's music may be, “Paul Simon singing piano ballads about broken hearts, and pants, to thunderous percussion.” A native of Cedar Falls, Iowa, Cook-Feltz has spent the past seven years living in Minneapolis, performing throughout the state and metro area with a variety of backing ensembles, large and small, sure and unsure.

This Saturday at 2 PM, we'll re-broadcast his percussive "Java Blend" performance from October of 2011.

Ben Cook-Feltz recently completed a new CD, Ben Cook-Feltz And You, and celebrated its release with a Virtual CD Release Show, filmed at Minneapolis’ Hideaway Studio (Atmosphere, Brother Ali, the Snoop Dogg Super Bowl commercial). For his October 2011 Java Blend performance, Cook-Feltz was joined by the Glorious Percussion Armada, an assemblage of local Twin Cities percussionists who banded together to heal the world through song.
