The sounds of music will soon be filling The Square again as the annual Thursday night Music on the Square begins this week.

Sponsored by us here at Vineyard Square Hotel, and also the Eisenhauer Gallery, the weekly event has fast become a summer tradition on the island. Various artists will be playing throughout the summer, but many weeks feature the fabulous Mike Benjamin.

Over the years Mike has played with many renowned artists including Sue Tedeschi, Bo Diddley, The Temptations, Ben E. King, Bob Weir, James Taylor, The David Letterman Band, The Blues Brothers and more. He was also the lead guitarist and singer for the Boston Music Award winning band “Entrain.”

Ten years as a professional singer and session musician in New York City enabled him to bring a high level of experience and professionalism to the bandstand. If you ar a local or visit the Vineyard often, you’ve  most likely seen Mike and his band somewhere — from a wedding reception to a beach party.

Mike and his guitar are kicking off the season at The Square this Thursday from 6-8 pm. Come see him!
