Mandatory Fun made chart history which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 200 album chart. It’s the first time that Al has ever had a #1 album – in fact, it’s the first time a comedy album has topped the Billboard chart in over 50 years (and the first time a comedy album has debuted at #1 in history!)

Live Music: Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals @ Les Schwab Amphitheater

Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals are reuniting for their first tour in seven years. “The Innocent Criminals are a family,” Harper said of the band’s return to touring. “We’ve remained very close over the years and it seemed like we couldn’t wait another minute. We’ve all come full circle in our own ways and it is time we pick up where we left off. It’s creatively time for us to do this.”

The Innocent Criminals – percussionist Leon Mobley, bassist Juan Nelson, drummer Oliver Charles, keyboardist Jason Yates and guitarist Michael Ward. Founding members Mobley, Nelson and Charles have been integral parts of Harper’s sound for more than 20 years, first playing gigs at the tiny Mint nightclub in Los Angeles and supporting Harper’s 1994 debut, Welcome to the Cruel World. Yates and Ward became ICs a decade later and helped expand and refine the band’s sound.

“The new music we’re writing honors the old IC sound, but is light ages ahead of where we were back then,” explained Harper. “I can’t wait for fans to hear it and give us that stamp of approval that only Innocent Criminal fans can give.”
