EXPERIMENTAL | Marco Benevento


Marco Benevento's Zach Galifianakis-like appearance and odd onstage behavior — like the giant tiger mask he wears and puts on his band mates — adds a sense of comedy to his shows. In the end though, you'll remember the show more for the great tunes. The New York City based producer's three-piece band features the piano, drums, bass, and good old fashioned jamming and grooving at its finest. Benevento likes to use guitar pedals and other sound-altering methods on his piano, resulting in some unique tonalities. If you're one of those people who needs lyrics in their music, stay away, but if you're a jazzhead or jam band fan, this one's worth the price of admission.

Marco Benevento and his band play with Occupanther on Thursday, May 15, at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut St. 8 p.m. $10-$13 day of show.;
