Benny Dotson: Barefoot In The Deep South
Some of you might not know it, but I like music. Yeah, I know, shallow, I know, but that’s just how it is. My dad is a pretty good guitar player and my mom taught piano and sang, both of which gave me an appreciation for music. Of course, my good buddy Benny Dotson is a real underrated, under-the-radar, once-in-a-lifetime type of singer and bandleader. I’ve seen him a few times with his band, the Dots and Digits Band in the last few years, but I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting Benny. This is why I went to see him in Birmingham, Alabama this year.
When I said I liked music, that’s not the only reason I went to see Benny Dotson. I wanted to see him live so I could tell you all about it.
I arrived at the venue about 2.5 hours before the show was to begin. It was a well-kept, small, intimate venue called the Mars Music Hall. The Mars is where I got to speak with the very knowledgeable Benny Dotson. We talked about his journey as a musician and much more. I must admit, I was really impressed with his openness. I’ve heard a lot of bad stories about being an artist, and I’m sure he has too.
Here’s my video from the show. Thanks to Willie Archie for hooking me up!
It’s been my pleasure, Benny. I hope you’re having a good year!
I want to give some special thanks to a great friend of mine, Tim Gallegos. He sent me this video of Benny when he was younger. It’s really a special piece of Benny Dotson’s history. The video was shot at his mother’s house where he first learned to play guitar. I’m sad to say we don’t know the name of his mother. If you know who it is, leave me a comment, and I’ll update the story.
Also, thanks to my pal, Roy Manoogian, for putting me up and driving me to and from the venue. Roy is the road manager for SweetLife Recording and he was kind enough to give me a tour of the SweetLife Recording Studio. It’s the same place where they record. Here’s a video Roy gave me of the recording studio
