Benevento/Russo Duo

On the heels of their resounding ropeadope debut, “Best Reason to Buy the Sun,” the Benevento/Russo Duo continue to astound audiences and critics alike with their stellar interplay, defining hooks and immense sound. Marco Benevento (keys) and Joe Russo (drums) continue to defy expectations and categorization.

The Duo hit the road in March of 2005 in support of BRTBTS and haven’t rested since. Upon returning from a short promotional tour in Japan, they have been ubiquitous on the touring circuit, launching their new album at a capacity crowd showcase at South by Southwest and then continuing through the summer with slots on the Sasquatch Music Festival and Bonnaroo, to name a few. With audience expectations growing, Marco and Joe continued to introduce new compositions in the vein of such album cuts as “Sunny’s Song” and “Welcome Red”. One of these tunes, “Best Reason to Buy the Sun” highlights the strengths of this songwriting team which were hinted at on the album of the same name.
