Great interview with Tommy Benedetti from John Brown’s Body; Playing #Syracuse, NY TONIGHT 1/18/13!!! @johnbrownsbody
You’d be hard pressed to find a current roots-reggae band with more drive, innovation, and straight up talent than Ithaca, NY’s John Brown’s Body. If you have ever been to one of their performances, you know what I’m talking about. If you call yourself a reggae fan and haven’t seen them yet, you should either hustle up and get to one, or drop the “fan” moniker from your self-description. These guys wail!

Interview with MARCO BENEVENTO; Playing Syracuse, Ithaca, and Albany this week! @marcobenevento @royalpotato
Brooklyn, NY based Pianist/Organist/Composer/Virtuoso Marco Benevento has accomplished many things during his musical tenure. Between his indie-rock duo Benevento Russo, his band Bustle In Your Hedgerow (you figure it out,) Garage A Trois (with Stanton Moore,) and his solo output, one could say Marco Benevento is slightly busy. Add a family on top of that, and it makes you wonder when the guy has time to sleep.
Energetic, electro-rock quartet Jimkata may be one of the best examples of a band that caught a serious break when electronic dance music and acoustic instrumentation caught the mainstream music industry’s eye. With heavy bass drops, sprinkled with tasty melodic embellishments and groovy instrumentation, Jimkata are a perfect fit within the new wave of electro-jam rock.
Matisyahu, now free from the rigors of Orthodox Judaism, is back on the road and coming to State Theater in Ithaca, NY tomorrow, November 6! After you vote for a new president, why don’t you go grab yourself a calzone and boogie with us!
