Ep. 9 - Benjamin Fowler

Hello, and welcome to The Rob Burgess Show. I am, of course, your host, Rob Burgess.
On this, our ninth episode, our guest is Benjamin Fowler.
Fowler has been playing the drums since he was 12, and teaching since the age of 17. He graduated from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music in 2008, with a bachelor's degree in jazz studies and percussion. At school he studied with Los Angeles studio stalwart Steve Houghton. He has also had lessons with veteran New Orleans drummer John Vidacovich, and studied regularly with Indianapolis jazz and gospel great Charleston “Deno” Sanders.
Over the years, Fowler has played the drums in such bands as Community Currency, The Delicious (Joyful Noise Records), Kentucky Nightmare (Standard Recording), DM Stith (Asthmatic Kitty), and Cardboard. He is currently busy with The Jefferson Street Parade Band and Chainsaw Mondays.
Along with the drum set, Fowler also teaches finger picking, rock and jazz guitar, and piano. At the Jefferson Street Music Studio, Fowler coordinates several teachers: They’re all currently active in Bloomington’s music community, and they teach a variety of instruments including trumpet, saxophone, keyboard, banjo, mandolin, vocals and more. Whatever you’d like to learn, the experts at JSMS can help!
Ben is the founder of The Limestone Beaters. The group began in June 2012, as Bloomington’s only independent student drum line. In the summer 2014, Aaron Comforty joined as co-director, and the group blossomed into a full-on student brass band: They just recorded their first full length album at the end of April!
