Ben Kempel – Bass/Vocals
Ben has been performing since age 17. A die-hard fan of the stage, Ben has trouble
saying “no” and never seems to be sure of how many bands he’s playing in at a
given time. Confused as usual, Ben
mistook Steerage as a free trip to Ireland
and ended up playing bass for the band.
We suspect that he still doesn’t know he’s playing in a band and not
going to Ireland. Ben spends most of his free time playing
guitar, usually only breaking to play a different instrument. This commitment
has led to his disregard for some of the things most of us take for granted,
like grooming. When you see Steerage
you’ll understand how much Ben loves to play music and perform.
