Rihanna Booed In Australia After Showing Up Late To Her Own Concert

An Indiana native, Bennett got his start in the music business in the late-70s, as a roadie with “Carry On My Wayward Son” classic-rockers Kansas, through a deejay pal. “They were playing clubs but they’d come to Lafayette and because of (the deejay’s) support play the 2,000-seat concert hall. So they got him a job in the studio. And I was home for the summer farm-handing, which is a job I used to do, and I got home for lunch and this guy calls and he’s like, ‘You want a job?’ And I was like, ‘Mom, I’m out of here.'” Eventually, Bennett moved into sound and lighting, including work at the New Orleans Convention Center and Huntsville’s Theatrical Lighting Systems. When Bennett brought the Alabama Rising idea to Flying Monkey manager Anna Sue Courtney, she thought it sounded like an ideal fit for the venue, known for its superb acoustics and warm, intimate vibe. “We try to support local and regional musicians and artists as much as we can,” Courtney says. “And I’ve known Doug for a while and he has really perfect taste in music.” Pretty much a classic-rock and singer/songwriter fan, Bennett says to do Alabama Rising justice he, “had to kind of step out of what I like, and think about what everybody likes.” If shows already scheduled through late-January go well, Bennett can see the series continuing further. “I’m just having a ball with it. It’s the best thing I’ve taken on in years.” Oct. 5: The Great Book of John/ Shaheed and DJ Supreme (Birmingham) “The Great Book of John is Wilco-y, Radiohead-ish … sort of dreamy,” Bennett says.
