MEET THE BAND

Ben's Bones

August 24, 2006|By SAM SESSA

Hometown -- Annapolis

Current members --Dan Haas, vocals and guitars; Jamie Watkins, drums; Josh Chapman, bass; Joe Morson, keyboards

Founded in --2001

Style --indie acoustic rock

Influenced by --Crowded House, Paul Simon, Elvis Costello, Guster

Notable --As of two weeks ago, the band was preparing to record a show at Rams Head Tavern for a future live double-album. The band only has one album, Wishful Thinking. It's time to cut album No. 2, and a live record was the easiest way to do it, Haas said.

Quotable --"We've had a long run without a record," Haas said. "The first record was a painfully long recording process, trying to get everybody to come together in terms of studio time. This is a great opportunity to do everything the way we play it all the time: in one quick shot."

Hear Ben's Bones on Monday at 49 West Coffee House, 49 West St. in Annapolis. The music starts at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $6. Call 410-626-9796 or go to 49westcoffeehouse.com. Information about the band: bensbones.com.
