Band bio: Made up of pianist and singer Ben Levin, guitarist Aron Levin, and drummer Oscar Bernal, The Ben Levin Three have staked their claim as instant crowd-pleasers just about everywhere they go. In fact, front man Ben Levin is no stranger to recognition. At only 21 years old, he has already accrued such prestigious honors as having been nominated for a Blues Music Award and two Blues Blast Magazine Awards. Cincinnati’s very own, Ben played his first festival, Cincy Blues Fest, at the age of 13. Having studied under local blues legend Ricky Nye, Ben cut his teeth playing piano, writing songs, and singing on stages across the world. In a genre steeped in tradition, Ben pays homage to the greats (Ray Charles, Otis Spann, and Pinetop Perkins, to name a few) while simultaneously infusing his own, effortlessly cool musicianship into everything he does. He credits his father and bandmate, Aron Levin, with instilling a love of the blues in him at a young age.
