Daniel Bennet Group Jazz Trio Set to Perform March 30th at Bonnet House

New York based Daniel Bennett Group is set to perform at Bonnet House Museum & Gardens Thursday, March 30 at 7pm. Enjoy a jazzy musical event you’ll never forget on the magical Bonnet House Estate. Ticket includes complementary wine.

Saxophonist Daniel Bennett has been hailed as one of the most original and unpredictable musical voices of his generation. Daniel Bennett can be heard throughout the world performing his award-winning compositions on saxophone, flute, clarinet, and oboe. The Daniel Bennett Group plays modern jazz, fused with elements of surf rock and avant-pop.

Daniel Bennett Group is currently touring to promote their newest album, ‘Sinking Houseboat Confusion’ (Manhattan Daylight Media). Bennett is joined by renowned guitarist Nat Janoff and master percussionist Matthew Feick. The Boston Globe describes Bennett’s music as “a mix of jazz, folk, and minimalism.”

The band was recently voted “Best New Jazz Group” in New York City Hot House Magazine. The Daniel Bennett Group has been featured in the Washington Post, Boston Globe, NPR, Indianapolis Public Radio, San Francisco Examiner, St. Louis Public Radio, and the Village Voice. The Village Voice raves, “saxophonist Daniel Bennett makes hay with an airy approach that’s buoyant enough to conjure notions of East African guitar riffs and Steve Reich’s pastoral repetition.”  Time Out New York describes the music as “hypnotic.”

Tickets are $25, include complimentary wine and are available online at www.bonnethouse.org or by calling (954) 703-2614.
