George Benson
OPENING ACT:
Andreas Varady is a teenage jazz guitar sensation managed by the legendary Quincy Jones. “It’s not just his ability to move around the fretboard that’s thrilling; it’s his feeling for the music, his harmonic awareness, and all-round musicality.” - The Herald
ABOUT THE SHOW:
“On Broadway” icon, jazz guitarist, and silky-smooth singer GEORGE BENSON jams on funky favorites ranging from pop to bebop. With 10 Grammy Awards, Benson has been named Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts and recorded the first platinum jazz album, Breezin’, in 1976.

 

“[George Benson] can achieve more variety of texture with his thumb than some manage with all four fingers…For two ecstatic hours the years rolled away, the audience of 50-somethings forgot their mortgages and kids and rocked triumphantly in the aisles.” - The Telegraph
