The Bennys have been performing throughout Northern California and Nevada since 2004. The band formed when singer Bobby Martinez gathered musicians from well known area bands to create an eclectic musical experience. Their easygoing sound is a relaxing blend of island music and modern folk with upbeat rhythms. With funky beats that people can dance to, or groove along with from their seats, a performance by The Bennys leaves audiences with an experience they won't soon forget.
The Bennys are:
Bobby Martinez- vocals, guitar
Will Fourt- lead guitar, vocals
Brian Burke- bass
Arron Creechley- drums
Scott Reams- keys, saxophone
Chuck Bond- trumpet
Art Luna, Owner of Lunas Cafe calls the Bennys' music "definitely great funk--a sentiment echoed by a small legion of fans. The band certainly appeals to fans of super-cool Jack Johnson with a touch of pop, a touch of reggae beat and a heaping helping of laid back. While they sometimes channel the mellower side of Sublime, the Bennys are equally able to sustain a long Grateful Dead-like jam. Definitely danceable."
