During the 1990’s the biggest name in Jazz, in Hamilton was Paul Benton. Paul has recently returned to Hamilton from out west and has once again been performing in the area. We are thrilled to announce that The Paul Benton Trio will be opening the 2019 Steel City Jazz Festival on Wednesday November 9that the Artword Artbar.
Mr. Benton, on piano and vocals, will be joined by Tom Altobelli on Bass and Sean Bruce Parker on Drums. Both are past SCJF performers, Tom with video game cover band Koopa Troop and Sean with Aubrey Wilson.
The Paul Benton Trio performs jazz standards, with blues, ragtime, boogie woogie and latin items, along with original material with vocal. Check out Paul’s website at http://www.pbentonstudio.ca
