BENEVENTO/FRIEDMAN (THE SLIP) UNITE


Marc Friedman by Rie Kasahara
Former classmates, dynamic players and long-time friends Marc Friedman, bass player of The Slip and Marco Benevento, keyboardist of the Benevento/Russo Duo, are joining forces for a two-city, four-night run beginning Friday April 8th at the Paradise Lounge in Boston.

Both Friedman and Benevento continue to receive acclaim in their usual outfits - The Slip traverses worlds of styles, carving out their own voice in rock 'n' roll with a new album presently in the works. And the Benevento/Russo Duo, with their ropeadope debut Best Reason to Buy the Sun hitting April 5th, have quickly become one of the hottest and most progressive acts in the land and have recently added a Memorial Day BBQ at the Sasquatch Festival with gunslingers Wilco and Kanye West to their already busy schedule.

As each performance will focus on improvisation with some of the material pre-arranged, Benevento and Friedman have brought together for the first time some of the finest musicians New York and Boston have to offer – legendary guitar player Wayne Krantz, superstar drummers Ari Hoenig and Andrew Barr of The Slip, sonic wizard DJ Olive and saxman and multi-instrumentalist Timo Shanko.
