Meet The Pianist

Born in Atlanta, Pianist Benny began studying music at the age of four with Julliard graduate, Aida de Bray.

He was fully trained in classical piano by the age of 10, often performing in concerts and local social events.  Beginning at the age of 15, Benny discovered the joys of playing keyboards and singing with Atlanta rock bands such as  Boston Tea Party, Perpetual Motion, and The Hahavishnu Orchestra.

After receiving a BA in Music Performance from Georgia State University, Benny continued to pursue a music career accompanying such artists as The Drifters, Tommy Roe, Percy Sledge, and Broadway singer Kathren Cherelle.  In 1977, Benny landed a recording contract with Mercury Records as an individual singer/songwriter and as part of the rock band calledThe Younguns.  Through the support of publisher, Bill Lowery, Benny’s song titled “Wait Til The Time Is Right” was chosen as a Pick Hit of the Week in Billboard Magazine in April 1977.

While choosing to raise a family and remain in Atlanta, Benny has continued to perform with various local groups and as a solo entertainer.  He has performed for such celebrities as the late Muhammed Ali, President Bill Clinton, Sen. Johnny Isakson, Gov. Sonny Perdue, Newt Gingrich, and Evander Holyfield.

Benny has served as the house keyboardist at such local clubs as Hemingway’s and Cowboy’s accompanying such artists as Lone Star, George Jones, Travis Tritt, Toby Keith, Marshall Tucker, Billy Dean, Charlie Daniels, and Dwight Yoakum. Benny is now available for solo piano work, and he can fill any music need for your next function.
