Uncle Joe Benson with Kansas & B.O.C. @2011 O.C. Fair.
August 11, 2011: Who better to host Kansas and Blue Öyster Cult in concert at the Pacific Amphitheatre under a Full Moon than your Uncle Joe? By the time he finished his four-day run at the Orange County Fair, J.B. had revved up over 26,000 people!

Hello there ladies and gentlemen!! Does anybody want to Rock & Roll?
Kansas at full tilt! Drummer Phil Ehart, violinist/guitarist David Ragsdale, bassist signer Billy Greer, lead guitarist Richard Williams and lead singer/keyboardist Steve Walsh — it's all about the music!
Heads up, there are two acts tonight... so remember to properly hydrate!
Blue Öyster Cult's frontline.
Hanging with B.O.C.'s Buck Dharma and Rudy Sarzo.
Sometimes the Uncle Joe's Meet & Greets get a little emotional.
