“Mixing current Americana and folk with vintage country and soul, and lacing it all together with pedal steel, telecaster, B3 and banjo.”
Ben Van Dyke,
and Wes Wingate
Hailing from various points around Mid-Missouri, The Late Night Benedictions have been combining all of their favorite sounds and styles since 2011. That sound has been alternately described as “Soultry & Western”, “roots-rock”, “alt-country”, “Americana”, and “down-right good”. With four songwriters and as many vocalists, this 5-piece’s (sometimes more, sometimes less) breadth of style and genre recall such historic acts as the Eagles, Beach Boys, Flying Burrito Brothers, and Beatles, with more current nods toward Dwight Yoakam, the Avett Brothers and the Tedeschi/Trucks Band. Their first full-length album, Work Out Your Own Salvation, was released in November, 2013, on Home Tone Records.
