King Benny is a Blues/Rock based band out of a small river town by the Mississippi River called Louisiana, Missouri.
The band mixes several genres to make their sound. “We grew up on so many different styles of music, so it’s natural that all of those styles are blended in to our sound. We want everyone who comes to a show to hear something they like.”
Their latest record is a blend of Americana and Delta Blues. Inspired by folklore of the 1920’s and 30’s, the songs touch up on stories about The Great Depression, Prohibition, Farm Droughts, Heartbreak and Loss, as well as the uplifting feeling of being baptized in a river after attending a tent revival. King Benny blends 1930’s Delta Blues with the electrified Blues and Folk music of the 1960’s to get their sound. King Benny has made waves in the Midwest Blues scene having played several festivals and clubs as well as getting airplay in major radio markets with their original music.
