Memorial for Benny Hills & Benefit for Seattle Drum School

Ben Hills was a Seattle drummer, Comet Tavern bouncer, and much loved Capitol Hill personality when he died in a tragic house fire two years ago. Since then, the Comet has hosted two memorials in his name to benefit the Seattle Drum School, a place where, according to Ben's mom Marianne, "Ben was nurtured and mentored from the time he was 12." On the second anniversary of his passing, Ben's friends and bandmates offer up a third benefit to honor the spirit of a cherished friend and musician who simply loved to rock. With Sean, The Shallows, Local Dudes, 350's, Pearl of Champagne Champagne, The Piniellas (members of Hills' band The Shy Ones), Rob Femur, The Sweet Pups. GWENDOLYN ELLIOTT
