Free Concert featuring Of the Orchard

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2019, 7 - 8 PM

Location: Yellowjacket Union Shippar Atrium

Of The Orchard was founded upon the roots of singer/songwriter, Ben Vanden Boogaard, and his desire to expand out from performing as a solo artist to being surrounded by a full band. In the winter of 2017, Ben recruited Lewis Wethall (drums), Alec Thicke (bass/backing vocals), and Zach Ward (guitar) to embark with him on a project called "10 in 10" where the four of them would record, film, and release a new single, accompanied by a music video, every month for 10 months between March 2017 - December 2017.

After several months of playing together and many enjoyable social outings later, the four guys began brainstorming a way for everyone to be included in the band name, as the project was originally started under Ben's solo project, Ben Vanden Boogaard. A few evenings were spent brainstorming names which, needless to say, ended in failure as some of the "favorites" were: Benny and the Windmills, Daddy Tops, and Blood Kitten. Eventually, Of The Orchard emerged as the favorite, coming from the English translation of Ben's last name: van den boogaard.
