Chris Jones & The Night Drivers with opening set by Ben Benedict

Friday, Apr. 05 | 8:00pm ET (7:00pm CT)


Chris Jones & The Night Drivers make some of the most distinctively elegant yet driving bluegrass music to be heard anywhere today, with a unique blend of dry wit, emotional authenticity, and broad humor that’s won the loyalty of a growing number of fans across the country. Steve Martin referred to the Night Drivers as “…some of the best players in bluegrass! Chris Jones’ voice is up there with the great masters.” Collectively, Chris Jones & The Night Drivers have won nine IBMA awards.

This will be the band’s very first show following the release of their new album “The Choosing Road.”  With refined dynamics and some of the band’s most intimate songwriting to date, “The Choosing Road” has already produced two #1 singles on the bluegrass airplay charts.

Opener, Ben Benedict has been playing bluegrass since his father put a mandolin in his hands at the ripe old age of four. As a former member of the Henhouse Prowlers and Dog 1 he has toured both regionally and nationally, and can often be seen in clubs and festivals throughout the country with his band or sitting in with a variety of groups he has made friends with over the years. 

Box Office opens at 4pm ET
Starts 8:00pm, doors open 7:00pm
