Marco Benevento To Play Three Select West Coast Dates In May
"Benevento is something of an iconoclast on the piano. He knows his Monk and his Basie, but he prefers to play like a rock star, bashing power chords into the ivories and hooking up with others who straddle the rock-jazz line. Is it jazz? Is it rock? Hard to say, but it hardly matters." -The Boston Globe

05.02 | One Eyed Jack's | New Orleans, LA (Invisible Baby Release Party)
