Billy Weathers, aka B.Well, is one of Des Moines’ classiest acts. Not only does he know how to rock a crowd, but he’s always at the center of community-minded projects, aiming to better life for everyone here in the 515.
This isn’t my first time shooting one of his shows, and it surely won’t be my last. At this particular event, he was opening up for the one-man music army/human beatbox out of Minnesota, Heatbox.
B.Well was joined on the stage by his team, including Johnny Marz, Appolo Spacey, and Teller Bank$. Their set lasted about an hour and also included a moving moment of silence and tribute to NBA legend, Kobe Bryant, who recently passed away in a tragic helicopter crash in the mountains of Calabasas, California. May he rest in peace.
