“Steal My Kisses” by Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals

October 27, 2008

Live at the Hollywood Bowl in 2003.  Ben Harper is the official house band at Chum HQ.  Naturally this is an unpaid position which requires artists to show up at my whim to perform in my basement.  We’re still looking for a band to actually honor the imaginary contract they never signed.  Such prima donnas.

Anyway, Ben Harper mixes it up so much, writing songs in many styles, folk, rock, reggae.  The beat boxer featured in this performance is Jeremy Nelson, son of Innocent Criminal bass master Juan Nelson.
