Marco Benevento, one of the most innovative and talented players today opened Sullivan Hall up in January with a series of 5 shows (which Mike Greenhaus of Relix/Jambands.com dubbed “scenester Thursdays”) with special guests including the likes of Billy Martin (MMW), Stanton Moore (Galactic), Kaki King, Andrew & Brad Barr and Marc Friedman of The Slip, Joe Russo (The Duo), Skerik, Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green, JFJO), Steven Bernstein(Sex Mob), Bobby Previte, DJ Olive, Jonas Hellborg and more. We are very happy to have Marco back for two nights in April (11 & 12) with Briggan Krauss (of Sex Mob), Bobby Previte (Coalition of the Willing), and many special guests. Sam Kinninger Band (who recently tore up the stage with two sold out nights of Lettuce last weekend) will open on April 11.
Here’s a great piece from the current issue of Rolling Stone about Marco, his first solo album, and his January residency at Sullivan Hall: Fricke’s Picks: Marco Benevento
