Akronite of the Week

Meet Benjamin Patrick

Your host for the week of May 26, 2019

Benjamin Patrick, host of the @summitpeeks Instagram, May 26-June 1

Meet Ben, in his own words:

“Born and raised an Akronite, just like my parents and grandparents!

“I’m a self-taught musician, who plays drums, bass, guitar, and piano, and also sings. I love everything Akron, from the food, to the people, to the parks systems, and of course the music scene!

“I have always had a strong fascination with Akron history, especially the Akron sound of the late ’70s and early ’80s. This was a large inspiration for me when forming local rock n roll band, The Dreemers, and then a few years ago I founded the recording studio, Akron Recording Company.

“Through passion for music and Akron, my goal is to try to put Akron back on the map as a more nationally recognized epicenter for music and culture, like it once was!”
