Benevento, who's originally from New Jersey and now lives in Brooklyn, has connections to both the jazz and jam band scenes. He studied music at Berklee and first began to gain wide recognition in the early 2000s for his duo project with drummer Joe Russo.
Since then, he has released six CDs as a solo artist/bandleader, with a seventh, TigerFace, set to come out in early September on the Royal Potato Family label. In addition to his solo projects, Benevento also has been a member of Garage A Trois and of Bitches Brew Revisited, the Miles Davis-inspired band with Cindy Blackman, Graham Haynes, Melvin Gibbs, DJ Logic and other NYC musicians.
Tickets for Marco Benevento at Old Rock House are $12 in advance, $15 day of show, and will go on sale at 5:00 p.m. this Friday, July 20.
