This Friday I am going to Mexico City to play some shows with my friend from Buenos Aires the talented guitarist Fernando Montardit. In 2017 I had the chance to spend a couple weeks in Argentina playing music with him and I look forwar to meeting up with him and another great Argentinian musician Guillermo Perata to play some concerts. I’ve been to Mexico City before and I loved it. I have roots there as well as my father completed high school there.

Afterwards I will come back to to New Orleans and play many shows at the Satchmo SummerFest. Then, Fernando and Guillermo will join me in New Orleans for a special night with Tim Laughlin and Kris Tokarksi at the Bombay Club.

Stay cool 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
