The Benny Benack Band
At the age of 27, Pittsburgh-born, New York-based Jazz trumpeter & singer Benny Benack III
has quickly established himself as one of the most versatile and virtuosic voices of his
generation. Hailed by the New York Times as “a charismatic young trumpeter who maintains an
earnest sideline as a singer”, Benack has a knack for delighting audiences with panache, in the
spirit of classic crooners like Sinatra & Mel Tormé, with a nod to legendary trumpet showmen
Louis Armstrong & Dizzy Gillespie.
Equally comfortable in both Jazz and Pop settings, Benack has worked with some of the
greatest acts in music today, touring domestically as a trumpet soloist with Josh Groban, Ben
Folds, fashion icon Isaac Mizrahi, as well as European engagements with Jazz Bass
extraordinaire Christian McBride. He recently headlined Birdland Jazz Club alongside Cabaret
legend Ann Hampton-Callaway, in tribute to “Louis & Ella”. He’s been a guest artist with the
Pittsburgh Symphony Pops Orchestra, the Columbus Jazz Orchestra, the Minsk Philharmonic
Orchestra, featured both as a vocalist and trumpeter with each ensemble.
In the Fall of 2017, Benack released his debut album “One of a Kind” to critical acclaim, noting
he “reels off songs that come alive with his lustrous trumpet and golden bari-tenor vocalastics”
- World Music Report. On the heels of his album’s worldwide success, Benack maintains an
active touring schedule internationally, most recently bringing his band to Shanghai on behalf
of Jazz @ Lincoln Center, helping to open their new flagship club there. When at home in NYC,
he can be found in residency both at Mezzrow Jazz Club in the West Village, and at the iconic
Carlyle Hotel, performing in Bemelmen’s Bar with his trio, where Benack showcases yet
another talent by accompanying his own vocals on the piano as well.
