The European House Concert  Hub

The place for concert hosts, guests and artists to network

Listen again to the great Ralph McLean chatting to Hub founder Rob Ellen on BBC Radio Ulster about his quest to encourage concerts in peoples own homes, when the Medicine Show toured Ireland this year with Chuck Hawthorne and Libby Koch (featuring interview and session with them too) 35 minutes into the show.(click picture)

About Me
The Van Allen Belt is the pop concept of multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Benjamin Ferris. Formed in 2008, the band is steeped in a lyrical nostalgia for 1960's girl-group-pop a la Burt Bacharach and Phil Spector. Consistently self-producing and releasing original material, the band is 3 albums and 2 EP’s strong in their catalog; also writing, directing, shooting, and starring in all 6 of their music videos.

Performing with such luminaries as Stereolab, Atlas Sound, Dan Deacon, Miike Snow, and TEEN at venues and festivals such as SXSW, NXNE, CBGB, CMJ, MPMF & VIA, the band continues to develop their live set in the complimentary atmosphere of their peers.

Live, the trio are a fully electronic performance, with the sound design, electronic drumming, and video projection of Scott Taylor providing atmosphere and backdrop for Benjamin Ferris’s melodic, polyrhythmic-orchestral synth work. Uniting all elements is the powerful and evocative presence of Tamar Kamin, sampling and looping her voice in real-time, building lush harmonies along with the melodies.

Honest pop with pertinent and progressive themes, punchy and trim production with a love of psych excess and a mature style, the group furthers their genre-defying trajectory touring extensively throughout the continental United States.
