Marco and Dave, Joe and Marco, Marco and Friends
Marco Benevento has fleshed out his fall plans. This evening the keyboardist will offer a jazz performance with Ween bassist Dave Drewitz and a handful of additional friends at Brooklyn, NYs Bar 4. Tomorrow, Benevento will perform with Joe Russo the traveling venue Spiegelworld, a venue currently docked at New Yorks South Street Seaport. The gig is actually the Duos first proper New York headlining appearance in some time and will feature an opening set by Bjorkestra. This past Saturday the Duo performed at Harrodsburg, KYs Terrapin Hill Harvest Festival, where the paired performers were joined onstage by longtime friend Reed Mathis, who was onsite for a gig with Tea Leaf Green.
Looking ahead, Benevento will also hit the road for a solo tour this November. As of press time, the keyboardists tour is scheduled to run from a November 7 appearance at Hartford, CTs Real Arts Ways through a November 16 stop at Philadelphias World Cafive. Mathis and Slip drummer Andrew Barr will back Benevento through November 10, while Slip bassist Marc Friedman and Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey drummer Josh Raymer will finish out the brief tour. Benevento will also play a solo show at New Yorks Kennys Castaways on October 23 as part of CMJ.
