Yeah you right!

I enjoyed another beautiful and busy spring season in New Orleans. I was honored to perform at the French Quarter Festival with the TomCats and at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival with bands led by Dr. Michael White and Greg Stafford.

I also celebrated the release of two new records. With the Steve Pistorius Quartet we released a new record of a show of Bunk Johnson’s music that we performed live at Snug Harbor in New Orleans.

Then long in the works, Riverside Jazz Collective released our debut albulm ‘Stomp Off Let’s Go!’. Both records can be found for purchase online or at the Lousiana Music Factory.

Anyways, I write this only a few hours before boarding a plane to Belgium with the Palm Court Jazz All Star Band! I am looking forward to performing dates in Belgium and Germany with this band before making my way to Denmark and Sweden for more concert dates!

Hope to catch up with y’all soon.

Peace,

Benny Amón

Since moving to New Orleans, drummer Benny Amón has won the respect of the top Jazz musicians in the city. He performs regularly at the Palm Court Jazz Café, Preservation Hall, Snug Harbor, and aboard the Steamboat Natchez. Benny has performed at festivals around the world including The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, French Quarter Festival, Monterey Jazz Festival, and most recently, the I Love Jazz Festival in Belo Holorizonte, Brazil.

“Benny is a breath of fresh air in today’s New Orleans music scene. His excellent musical instincts, solid time, willingness to learn from older musicians and his ongoing study of great drummers past and present create a perfect recipe for making any rhythm section swing.”Steve Pistorius

MUSIC


RELEASES

“This is a record of what Steve, James, Orange, and Benny felt like playing in the moment. Thus it is genuine and irreplaceable. And varied, with stomps, blues, pop songs both tender and mournful, genuine make-out music (SWAY), a handful of Creole seasoning, and a properly dark roux.”Michael Steinman, Jazz Lives
Steve Pistorius Quartet Live at the International I Love Jazz Festival in Belo Horizonte, Brazil



Benny would love to hear from you. He offers drum lessons for all ages and skill levels. Benny also leads bands for private events and public venues.
