Bryan Beninghove

Bryan Beninghove is a NY/NJ based saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist. As a composer and bandleader, he performs in a wide array of diverse musical styles - all fantastically pleasant on the ears and mind.

Beninghoveʼs latest release, “Beninghoveʼs Hangmen”; an eclectic collection of “creeptastic grinder-jazz”; placed number three on Lucid Cultureʼs list of the Top 25 Jazz Albums of 2011. His first release, “Organ Trio”, an album of rollicking B3 “grits and gravy” earned a nod from the Village Voice as a top pick of 2009. As a composer, his music has been heard on Comedy Central, Bravo, and IFC.
