NC music veterans, Rebecca Newton, Barry Gray, Wes Collins, FJ Ventre and Mike Babyak joined musical forces to create the folk/americana band “the bennys” in 2016. Each are songwriters/singers/players with gobs of experience and notoriety. The band performs originals and carefully curated covers from artists such as Steve Earle, Richard Thompson, Gretchen Peters, Patty Griffin, and fellow NC musicians. Their vocal virtuosity along with guitars, mandolin, lap steel, bass, and interesting electric stringed instruments reflect strong energy and all around stellar musicianship.
