New York City's Marco Benevento is a keyboardist known for blending all sorts of genres, such as jazz and indie pop, to create a fun and dynamic sound. This was evident on February 9th as Benevento played Saturn Birmingham in Birmingham to a captive audience that wanted to get down and have some fun on a rainy Friday night.
This was my first time seeing and hearing Benevento, who held court behind his keyboard while donning a sharp jacket and hat combo. Being a fan of The Muppets, I couldn't help but get a Dr. Teeth vibe from Benevento's get up and on stage charisma. Benevento's musical approach was a lot of fun and was greatly complimented by his backing band along with the production of the show. It was a top notch package deal that the audience loved. I know I'll definitely be checking out more of Benevento's work in the future and do hope to get a chance to photograph him again if he makes his way back to Birmingham.
