Ween Duo to Back Marco Benevento
The Ween rhythm section of bassist Dave Dreiwitz and drummer Claude Coleman will back Marco Benevento later this week. This unique version of the Marco Benevento Trio is slated to perform at Portsmouth, NH’s The Red Door (11/3), Burlington, VT’s Radio Bean (11/4) and Wilkes Barre, PA’s River Street Jazz Café (11/5). Though Dreiwitz regularly performs with Benevento, Coleman has only backed the keyboardist a few times. Benevento’s Radio Bean Friday night residency has featured a handful of guests, including Mike Gordon, the Dr. Ruckus horn section and vocalist Kat Wright.
In related news, Benevento has confirmed a post-Phish show at New York’s Highline Ballroom on December 29. He will also play a solo piano show at New York’s 92YTribeca on November 18 with special guests and label-mates Superhuman Happiness.
