5/23 SPECIAL LIVE PERFORMANCE BY: BENEDEK
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Benedek is a multifaceted musician/producer who is inspired by genres including funk, hip-hop, soul, progressive rock, jazz fusion, and house music. His melodic sensibilities recall a time when analog synthesizers were beginning to take hold of the musical landscape and musicianship, production, and technology were taking listeners to unprecedented realms. At age nine, Benedek started playing the electric guitar and has been hooked on music ever since. He uses his knowledge of synthesis and production techniques, as well as his guitar, bass and keyboard skills to take listeners on a funk driven, soulful, progressive journey through the deepest reaches of his mind.
