Ben Golder-Novick  Edgy multi-instrumentalist with charismatic stage presence. Blustering sax solos, quirky clarinet riffs, flute, melodica, Buddhist, 100% creativity.

Latergram: Some highlights from last week. 7/9- Birdland with Gunhild Carling. A night or theatrical jazz and many instruments. Have you seen Gunhild yet?!!! You should! 7/13- A return to CT with The Savage Brothers, horn section with my man Scott Haber on trumpet. Long-time friends! Thanks, Scott, for the invite to return to CT. 7/14- dropped by to see my former boss’ band, so of course I wound up jamming with them! Gino LoRicco was the principal in Tolland when I first started teaching there back in (gasp) 2005. Who remembers Gino?!!! 😎 Back at that time, Gino and I would have lengthy discussions about music and creativity (and still do!). Anyway, I just wanted to mention these recent events and I hope everyone is having a great week. #latergram #music #music4life #musician4life #livemusic

Tonight! #theowlz make our debut at @troostnyc. 8 PM on the dot. #jazz #blues #Brooklyn #Greenpoint

No memo needed for us for matching shirts and a fun night on the town! Thanks to my man @anthonyjamesnyc for hanging a few times now on Wednesdays at @evsnyc

Am I purposely standing in the way of this great sunset? Ohhhhh you know it! #beachday #sunset #riisbeach #truckerhat #neverleftthe90s

Some pics from the show this past Tuesday with #DaveandTim. What a great time! Thanks to Dave and Tim for having me back! 📸 @mulefool1 #livemusic #sax #acousticguitar #DaveMatthews #TimReynolds #cmac #fingerlakes

Great times reuniting with Postmodern Jukebox this week! Tuesday at the Highline Ballroom and last night at the Hard Rock in Biloxi. Always great to be back! #OG #pmj #pmjtour #pmjog #postmodernjukebox #outsidethejukebox

About to go down RIGHT NOW at #eastvillagesocial. The usual weekly hang. Gonna have a distant relative of mine sit in with us tonight (not in this picture, will be a mystery). Haha. It’ll be a father-son jam. Not to be confused with the fictional town “Fatherson” in Family Guy (yeah, I’ve referenced that before. Like a gazillion times. It happens).

Happy Fathers Day! Funny how the timing worked out this time around. This Wednesday night at East Village Social (AKA the usual Wednesday night weekly gig with The Owlz)- we will be having a special guest join in with the us. Billy Novick on sax. That’s my dad. We’re gonna jam! Hope everyone had a good Father’s Day today! #happyfathersday

Rooftop jammin’

I learned a lot from this. So I’m reading it for the second time. Plus, I love the title! #thewarofart

Rockin’ out onstage last night in San Antonio with my man Noah @petersonentertainment and West Kings Highway. Soooo much fun! Been talking to Noah about doing something like this for a while. So psyched it happened! #sax #saxes #saxophones #altosax #blues #funk #texas #sanantonio #repost #latergram #aboutlastnight
