Never Too Late


Feeling a bit camera shy


Born in Cambridge, Mike started his musical career as a young teenager playing for spare change in the streets of Harvard Square and in the subways of Boston.

Soon he found himself playing in bars and clubs and performing extensively during the summer months on Martha's Vineyard.

After attending Hampshire College, Mike moved to New York and quickly became a busy studio singer and player, doing record dates, song demos and recording scores of national jingles from Coke to Clorox to Bud.

Ten years in New York city and ready for a change, Mike moved himself and family (wife, Sandy and daughter, Charlotte) to Martha's Vineyard.

He then joined the 1996 Boston Music Award winning Band, "Entrain." While touring with Entrain mike worked on two of the bands CD's.

Mike later left the band and currently works with his own group "The Mike Benjamin Band." Over the years mike has played with such greats as Bo Diddly, James Taylor, The Dave Letterman Band, The Blues Brothers, Carly Simon, Sue Tadeschi and many others.

During his time in New York he recorded with many artists including Mark Cohn, Delbert Mclinton, Patty Labell, Will Lee, Vicky Sue Robinson, Paul Shaffer and Kati Mac.
