Beginning tomorrow, keyboard maestro, Marco Benevento, will kick off a string of 10 summer tour dates with room for more to be added along the way. The experimental rock and jazz pianist will play two dates before hitting White Eagle Hall in Jersey City on Friday, May 3, where NYS Music will be there to catch the set in full review.
Armed with the rhythm section of Karina Rykman on bass, drummer David Butler, and a smile from ear to ear, every one of the trio’s gigs is a celebratory event. With appearances already booked at Mountain Jam and Levitate Music and Arts Festival, Benevento’s summer is sure to be as colorful as the stained striped suits he likes to wear on stage.
Ahead of the first release under his birth-name, New York City native Andrew Fox has been enlisted to bring his soulful psych-pop blend to both the Jersey City and Washington D.C. dates as the opening act. Be sure to check out Shock By Shock, on streaming platforms now.
