Born the son of a Mississippi sharecropper, Ben Prestage has Blues in his blood. His great-grandmother was a vaudeville musician who toured with Al Jolson. His grand mother was a boogie pianist. The result - a musical prodigy that combines traditional Blues stylings with his own home brewed style of Southern-swamp-funk that gets audiences out of their seats from young to old. Ben plays nightly all across the South, one night Ben is playing at a coffee shop in Carolina, the next at a beach bar in the Florida Keys. In this journey, we follow Prestage to Hunstville, Alabama during the Cigar Box Blues Extravaganza where Ben introduces "his band" and amasses a varied following all along the way.
