Benvenue's Hollywood Gig

Last Friday night, I had the privilege of seeing Benvenue perform at On the Rox on Sunset Boulevard. I had never heard a single song by Benvenue before so I had no idea what to expect but the best way to experience a band for your 1st time is by seeing them perform live. It's the true test of an artist's talent. Benvenue passed that test with flying colors!

If I had to make a comparison, I'd say Benvenue is like Incubus meets Rage Against the Machine but, despite the similarities, Benvenue definitely has a unique sound that's all their own

It also doesn't hurt that they're a bunch of hotties! Between Sid's sexy handlebar mustache & Fran's bulging biceps, it was tough to always stay focused on the music Friday night but it wasn't an entirely unwelcome distraction ;-)

There was no escaping the obvious fact that Benvenue brought the house down in Hollywood! The crowd went nuts! Unfortunately, the venue's strict cut-off time prevented Benvenue from giving their audience the encore they demanded but it never hurts to leave the fans begging for more.

For more information on Benvenue, check out:

Their next show is February 23rd in San Francisco so, if you live in the Bay Area, I HIGHLY suggest you go see the awesomeness that is Benvenue for yourself!
