Marco Benevento Announces Albany Residency
Marco Benevento Tour
Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Marco Benevento has taken his coat off, Albany, and he plans to stay awhile: He’s just announced plans to host a weekly residency at Albany’s own Red Square. Set to kick off this fall, Benevento announced that the shows will coincide with the release of his latest album, which he will be recording in the spring of 2014. The Shins keyboardist Richard Swift will produce the album, and on it, Benevento will be joined by his current band, made up of bassist Dave Dreiwitz and drummer Andy Borger. No exact dates or ticketing information has been released yet for this residency, so stay tuned to get yourself a seat.
Born in Livingston, New Jersey, Marco Benevento has been an influential part of the New York experimental rock and jazz scene for over a decade (in a different millennium, even). The founder and recording engineer of the Fred Short recording studio in Upstate New York, Benevento is also a member of the bands Garage a Trois and Bustle in Your Hedgerow. In the latter, he and his bandmates attempt to reinvent the music of Led Zeppelin. He’s also toured with jam-band masters Trey Anastasio, Mike Gordon, and Joe Russo.
