About the Artists:
A multi-instrument phenomenon, Dave Bennett is a self-taught clarinet virtuoso who plays electric guitar, piano, drums and vocalizes. In addition to his own music, he covers music from the Swing Era to early Rockabilly and Country, to Elvis Presley, the Beatles and more. His second release, Blood Moon, which features five originals and six pop/jazz covers, hit the No 24 on the Billboard Jazz chart in 2018.
Perfectly fusing vintage old school cool and contemporary jazz, soul and pop energy and swagger, Ben Sharkey has enjoyed an extraordinary dual career over the past ten years. Since the charismatic vocalist posted his first raw home videos of himself singing Michael Buble and Frank Sinatra classics to YouTube in 2007, he has amassed over 5 million views worldwide for over 70 clips. The Michigan native has also become one of the Motor City’s premiere live entertainers, with hundreds of performances at jazz hotspots like Cliff Bell’s and a five year and counting residency at the Axis Lounge at the MGM Grand Detroit.
As a descendant of the legendary songstress and actor Lena Horne, and niece of the late great singer/songwriter Cleveland Horne of the “Fantastic Four”, it is no surprise that Kimmie Horne’s talent transcends the boundaries of impeccable vocals alone. Kimmie’s songs, “I Hope You Dance,” and special arrangement of “I Will Survive,” demonstrate the undoubted blend of her talent and sophistication.
