The Saint and Elmthree Productions presents a evening with Marco Benevento at The Saint in Asbury Park on Friday, March 1st, 2013 March 1st, 2013 (ASBURY PARK, NJ) – The Saint and Elmthree Productions is pleased to present Marco Benevento at The Saint in Asbury Park on Friday, March 1st, 2013 at 9:00 pm (7:00pm doors). Tickets are available through Ticketweb and at the door the day of the show. Tickets are $15 in advance and $17 day of the show. For more than a decade Marco Benevento has been amassing an extensive résumé of composition and collaboration, sparking the interest of a seemingly endless list of acclaimed musicians, including Carl Newman, Mark Eitzel and Matt Chamberlain, all leading to collaborative efforts along the way. Benevento's latest album, TigerFace, out now on The Royal Potato Family, was recorded and mixed by Tom Biller (Silversun Pickups, Elliot Smith, Fiona Apple) and Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Antony & The Johnsons, Akron/Family). His fourth studio recording to date, it represents Benevento's next step in the exploration and evolution of his precise yet freewheeling piano-driven songs. Over the course of the ten-track effort, the pianist incorporates a myriad of sonic color and melody, while calling upon musicians like drummers Matt Chamberlain (Brad Mehldau, Bill Frisell), John McEntire (Tortoise, The Sea & The Cake) and Andrew Barr (The Barr Brothers), bassists Dave Dreiwitz (Ween), Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green) and Mike Gordon (Phish), violinist Ali Helnwein (Traction Avenue Chamber Orchestra) and saxophonist Stuart Bogie (Antibalas, Superhuman Happiness). For the first time, Benevento uses vocals, inviting Kalmia Traver (Rubblebucket) to sing on two tracks. "Benevento jams with a concentration on the textures and colors available in his keyboards and arsenal of manipulated pedals and effects. His songs feature deceptively rich, catchy melodies and straight-ahead grooves that expand with subtle mounting gestures." – Rolling Stone The Saint is a nightclub located at 601 Main St., Asbury Park, NJ 07712.
