Ex-Particle Bandmates to Reunite as PUJA
Ex-Particle guitarist Ben Combe will reunite with Particle drummer Darren Pujalet for a five-night Colorado run this July as PUJA. The group, which also features bassist Cristian Basso (Leo Nocentelli, Little Hercules), will make stops in a number of Rocky Mountain venues throughout the run, including Vails Samanas Lounge (7/1), Frasers Crooked Creek Saloon (7/2), Crested Buttes The Eldo (7/3), Denvers Owsleys Golden Road (7/4) and Denvers Owsleys Golden Road (7/5). Jeff Armistead will play keyboards with the group on July 1 and 2, while Melvin Seals will perform with PUJA from July 3-5.
We are very honored to have the talented icon, Melvin Seals and my former band mate, Ben Combe, with us on this run, Pujalet said in a statement. Colorado has a great music scene. The locals are true music fans and we are proud to play for them.
Combe has not performed with Pujalet since he officially left Particle last October. The group has yet to announce a replacement guitarist.
