The Duo to Share New Years with Surprise Me Mr. Davis
The Benevento-Russo Duo will ring in 2009 with longtime friends Surprise Me Mr. Davis, the supergroup consisting of The Slip and Nathan Moore. The late-night New Years Eve performance will take place at New Yorks B.B. King Blues Club after the ball drops the morning of January 1. For those hoping to check out My Morning Jackets performance at the nearby Madison Square Garden, The Slip assures fans, This will be a late show starting after the ball drops, so if you’re planning on seeing My Morning Jacket a few blocks away at MSG (a great idea), better pace yourself and make it a double-header.
Both The Duo and The Slip opened for My Morning Jacket in 2006. The Slip will back Sonya Kitchell on an extended tour scheduled to begin at South Burlington, VTs Higher Ground on September 24, while The Duo will appear at Asheville, NCs Emerald Lounge on September 9.
