Benny Benack Quartet

  • Black Cat 400 Eddy Street San Francisco, CA, 94109 United States (map)

Hailed by the New York Times as “a charismatic young trumpeter who maintains an earnest sideline as a singer”, 27 year old NYC-based Benny Benack has quickly established himself as one of the most versatile and virtuosic voices of his generation. Benack has a gift for delighting and engaging audiences with panache and boundless energy, in the spirit of classic crooners like Sinatra and Mel Tormé, with a nod to legendary trumpet showmen Louis Armstrong and Dizzy Gillespie.

Benny has worked with many music greats, touring domestically as a trumpet soloist with Josh Groban, Ben Folds and fashion icon Isaac Mizrahi, as well as European engagements with jazz bass extraordinaire Christian McBride. He recently headlined Birdland Jazz Club in NYC alongside cabaret legend Ann Hampton-Callaway, in tribute to “Louis & Ella.” He has been a guest artist with the Pittsburgh Symphony Pops Orchestra, the Columbus Jazz Orchestra, The Minsk Philharmonic Orchestra, featured as both a vocalist and a trumpeter with each ensemble.
