If there was one man I had seen playing all over Moncton, it was definitely Ben Caplan.  If it wasn’t a solo acoustic performance, it was a full band show as Ben Caplan & the Casual Smokers.  I’ve been a big fan of Ben since my days in Halifax, so I made it a point to sit down and talk with him about his experience at The East Coast Music Festival.


1. How has your experience been at ECMA?

It’s been great!  ECMA is a lot of fun.


2. Where did you play during the ECMA?

We played a bunch of gigs, we played at the Members Lounge on the second floor of the hotel, we did the Gala, we played The Oxygen, that was a big one, and the response at all of them was tremendous.  We’re super happy about it!


3. You have a very different genre than what we’ve seen on the East Coast, have you noticed a good response to your type of music?

Yeah for sure, people are a little bit surprised and shocked sometimes I think at what we’re doing, but people are excited about hearing something new.


4. What is the best part about being a musician?

I guess that would be getting to play music all the time, and the ladies haha.


5. Final thoughts?

It’s a thrill and an honour to be here at ECMA 2012!


Ben Caplan & the Casual Smokers are most certainly a band not to miss!  If you didn’t manage to get to see them at ECMA, you can catch him at the legendary Evolve Festival that runs from July 20th to 22nd!  You do not want to miss this unreal performance!
