SummaryTwo guys: Marco Benevento and Joe Russo. Two instruments: keys and drums. Huge sound: a kaleidoscopically exploding wall of sound built on jazz, rock, beats, and life.
Constant touring over the past three years created DEEP fan base. In addition to their two man show, these guys serve as the house-band for everyone from hip-hopers (Lyrics Born); Jazz-Rockers (Charlie Hunter, Brad Meldau, Marc Ribot) to show stoppers (Mike Gordon, Phish) Picked by several publications (Urb, Magnet) as "the band to watch in 2005."
Their ropeadope debut, "best reason to buy the sun", was produced in LA by Joey Waronker (Beck, R.E.M.) giving the instrumental Duo an all-new partner (the recording studio) and an incredibly refined sound. With 240 shows in 2005 including spots at the Fuji Rock Fest (Japan), Royal Albert Hall (London); Bonnarroo & Coachella (US) you'll start seeing the freaks filing into your store, asking at the counter: "hey, you have the new DUO record?". You've been warned.
