About 2 For the Show

John Pickle has been entertaining since he was a kid (just a few years back). He has a flair for singing and playing guitar along with harmonica blended together with lighthearted exuberance. Some of his accomplishments include: Running a successful long term music therapy program in Toledo and the surrounding areas. He services hospitals, Alzheimer groups, Senior Centers, Retirement Communities, and Senior Living facilities. He has an extraordinary talent handling people with special needs and the elderly. It has been said of John, when he comes into a room he tends to lighten spirits and alleviate peoples worries. He just seems to have a special ability and charm. He studied music in Bowling Green State University and founded the very successful music groups “Shenaniganz” and “The Blue Kazoo”. When he isn't performing he stays busy working at The Anderson's and with his family of 3 kids and lovely wife. Ben DeLong has been a musician all his life, singing and performing in churches at a young age. His parents, both talented musicians, forced him to practice, and to this day, he is forever grateful. In addition to singing, Ben plays the piano/keyboard, trumpet, and guitar. In high school, Ben marched with the Bellbrook High School Marching Eagles around Dayton, Ohio as well as played in the Miami Valley Jazz group. Jazz maintained an interest in his life through college, and upon graduation, Ben took a full time position at a 500+ church as their Worship Pastor. When he got to Toledo, Ben continued to teach trumpet, trombone, piano, and guitar lessons privately and also joined several bands such as The Blue Streaks, The Blue Kazoo, his own Ben DeLong Band, and also joined the worship team at CedarCreek Church. When Ben isn't doing music (rare!), he is at home with his wife and two young children, trying to instill a love for music and a knack for mischief in his offspring. Sit back and relax while this lighthearted duo sing and joke their way into the hearts of their audiences, It's 2 for the Show!
