Porter, Vidacovich, Benevento and Skerik
George Porter Jr. and Johnny Vidacovich have invited some out of town guests to join them for their weekly trio spot at New Orleans Maple Leaf Bar tonight: Skerik and Marco Benevento. The organ-sax combo is in the Big Easy for a series of Garage a Benevento performances, including a stop at One Eyed Jack’s this Friday. While in town, Benevento will also perform with his Bustle in Your Hedgerow bandmate, Weens Dave Dreiwitz, and his longtime drum foil, Bobby Previte, at the Parish Room in New Orleans House of Blues this Saturday. Later that night, Benevento, Vidacovich, Skerik, and percussionist Mike Dillon will return to the Maple Leaf for a late night performance.
