Hi folks,

I have a few fun updates for y’all this fall.

Firstly, I have released a vinyl record version of Benny Amon’s New Orleans Pearls, now available for purchase at the Louisiana Music Factory, Euclid Records, and online at my bandcamp.

Additionally, my band Benny Amon’s New Orleans Pearls was selected for an official showcase performance at the Folk Alliance International January 2020 conference in New Orleans. We will be performing on January 22 for industry people from around the world. I am looking to expand the reach of this band and set up tours around the country and also abroad.

Also this fall I am anticipating the release of a record from Jazzology records of a trio recording with Evan Christopher and Kris Tokarksi.

Much love to everyone,

Benny

Benny Amón

Since moving to New Orleans in 2011 from his hometown of Davis, California, Benny has become one of the most in demand drummers on the New Orleans jazz scene. Benny holds a B.A in Development Studies from UC Berkeley. A job working with young people in schools first brought him to New Orleans. Since then Benny has been involved in recording sessions, tours, festivals, and special projects with all of the top traditional jazz musicians in New Orleans.Benny has performed in Japan as a cultural ambassador, in Brazil at the International I Love Jazz Festival, in Argentina as a guest artist, in Belgium, Germany, Denmark, and Sweden, and across the United States, including repeat performances at the Monterey Jazz Festival. At home in New Orleans, Benny performs regularly at the world famous Preservation Hall, The Palm Court Jazz Cafe, and on the Mississippi river aboard the Steamboat Natchez. Every year he performs at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, The French Quarter Festival, The Summer Satchmo Fest and the Danny Barker Banjo & Guitar Festival. Benny endorses and performs exclusively on Bopworks drumsticks and brushes.

“Although he turns 30 this year, he is a mature artist with large heartfelt visions and sensitivity. He is a spectacularly fine drummer. He makes beautiful sounds, he plays for “the comfort of the band,” he knows dynamics and timbres, and he swings no matter what the tempo.”- Michael Steinmann, Jazzlives.wordpress.com
