Spring in New Orleans is magical. Check out my calendar and you will see that I will be very active this spring performing at the music festivals we are lucky to have over the next few weeks. I am experiencing magic in all of the bands I play with as we welcome back so many wonderful out of towners who truly enjoy the music and what we do.

For all of those out of towners, if you see me let me know if you want to pick up a copy of my New Orleas Pearls Record. The cd has been met with a great response. OffBeat Magazine, The Syncopated Times, and Jazzlives all gave very nice reviews of the record and Peaches Records and the Lousiana Music Factory are selling them! But the best way to get a copy is to find me at one of my gigs!

See y’all out there at the festivals!

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
