New venue in Omaha
Updated July 23, 2007
INTIMATE MUSIC VENUE INVITES ACOUSTIC ARTISTS, FOLK GROUPS.  The blight of appropriate venues for traditional musicians has plagued Omaha until now, and the vaccine comes in the form of The Benson Grind. Located in the heart of Historic Benson, this stylish coffeeshop, cafe and art gallery has embraced the local traditional music scene and is currently seeking talent to fill available dates.

"The Grind is not trying to compete with the typical music venues," says proprietor Allan Zeeck, "we're looking for Old-Time, Folk, Bluegrass and related genres who need a cozier, more intimate place to play. It's perfect for the traditional musician and the acoustics in here are incredible. We'd love to have any music clubs meet here as well."

Poetry readings and spoken word nights are also being scheduled.

All interested parties are encouraged to contact Tob Wood via email for further details.
