Lake City’s own Ben Grier has made quite a mark for himself in the Gainesville area, appearing in almost too many bands to mention, but include Nick and the Swingtastics!, The R. Mutt Blues Band, Moondancer, Hard Luck Society, and of course the University of Florida Jazz Band. Proficient on tenor, alto, soprano and baritone saxophone, as well as clarinet, Ben represented UF in the 2015 SEC All-Star Big Band, and was recently named to the 2016 SEC All-Star Jazz Combo. A two-time recipient of the Gary Langford Jazz Scholarship, and three-time recipient of the Kenneth Webster Saxophone Scholarship, Ben will be graduating from the University of Florida this month. This is our opportunity to congratulate a truly fine young musician, one of the best to ever come out of this area.
