It’s Band Night
Benny Amón’s New Orleans Pearls was founded in New Orleans in 2018 with a creme de la creme of New Orleans Traditional Jazz Musicians. The band’s first record was released in 2019 live at Preservation Hall to a sold out audience. In 2021, Benny moved back to the Bay Area and started band leading with the pearls of the San Francisco Bay Area New Orleans Jazz Scene.
At Wednesday Night Hop, you will hear Benny’s Bay Area version of the New Orleans Pearls. They strive to bring authentic, highly danceable traditional New Orleans Jazz to their audiences.
