King Benny is a Blues/Rock based band out of a small river town by the Mississippi River called Louisiana, Missouri. The band blends influences of Delta Blues of the 1920's and 30's with the Electrified Blues and Folk Music of the 1960's, as well as rock and roll from the the 70's to form their sound.  Their original music prompted Original 1969 Woodstock co-creator, Artie Kornfeld to call them "A Bluesier version of The Band".

King Benny has shared the stage with Alvin "Youngblood" Hart, Taj Mahal, Charlie Musselwhite, Walter Trout, Larry McCray, Corey Stevens, the late-great Michael Burks, Wayne Baker Brooks, Shawn Kellerman, Marquise Knox, Bernard Allison, Jimmie Vaughan, Elmore James Jr., Eric Gales, Samantha Fish, Anthony Gomes, Guitar Shorty, Irma Thomas, Albert Castiglia, Albert Cummings as well as a few non-blues artists such as Dale Watson, CMA award winner Sara Evans, Molly Hatchet, and Grammy Award Winners, The Kentucky Headhunters and The Mavericks as well as TV's "The Voice" Winner, Sundance Head.
The band has performed with and backed BB King Entertainer of the Year winner, Tab Benoit as well as St. Louis Soul Queen, Barbara Carr.

The band performs original music, covers and even offers an acoustic set if your venue requires a more quiet atmosphere.
