Our Incubus brother and bandmate, Ben Kenney, is currently recovering from a recent medical procedure and will not be able to perform with us on our upcoming run at the end of the month. In his absence, our good friend Tal Wilkenfeld will fill in for him on bass and we look forward to performing with her at these shows!
We wish Ben a speedy recovery and can’t wait for him to join us on stage soon!
Much love <3
