Jess Novak & Ben Wayne: Live at the Palace Theater

This musical duo and couple blends their combination of styles and talents to hit a piece of everything. With a repertoire spanning The Grateful Dead to Chris Stapleton to TLC to Sublime–paired with dozens of original songs from each–this team has something for everyone. 

Ben Wayne’s room-stopping voice is enough to grab the attention of any crowd. Mixed with Jess Novak’s smooth electric violin work, equally accomplished songwriting, and similarly strong voice, this is a team of equals–but each offers something unique and always exciting to the combination. Wayne and Novak don’t just sing into the mic, they sing across it, often sharing songs for and about each other. That intimacy adds something stand-alone to their show–one that’s infectious with sincerity.

They’ll perform a mix of pop, rock, reggae and soul with Gavin George on percussion.
