What do you get when you add one of the Gold Coast’s most experienced and accomplished drummers to the Gold Coast’s most versatile singer/guitarist? You get real live music, fresh and spontaneous – the songs from the soundtrack of your life.
Benno is Chris Bent, lead singer of Gold Coast covers band ROCKKS and music industry veteran. Benno’s extensive experience, versatile vocal ability and huge repertoire combine to enable him to deliver an entertaining performance to satisfy a broad range of audience age groups. While many singer/guitarists seem to get stuck in the 70’s & 80’s, Benno’s long career as a performer and record company executive has kept him in touch with the best music from each of the last four decades. That includes melodic, acoustic versions of many recent pop/radio hits. “A great song is a great song” and a genuine, heartfelt performance will always let the song shine and remind you of why you loved that track in the first place.
Kesh is Jules Keshan, drummer for ROCKKS and formerly a member of the award-winning Mason Rack Band. Jules know how to play just the right groove and intensity to make any song come to life all over again. While Benno & Kesh has spent many hours rehearsing and playing together, Jules loves the spontaneity of following Benno when he plays and audience request “off the top of his head.”
Because Benno & Kesh aren’t locked into backing tracks and rigid arrangements, they use their experience to read the audience and serve up a smorgasbord of great songs to suit that particular crowd at that venue on that night.
So if you love to hear genuine live, acoustic versions of great songs from the 60’s to Now by Ed Sheeran, Neil Diamond, George Ezra, Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, The Eagles, Cold Chisel, Glen Campbell, U2, and so many more….
You’ll love Benno & Kesh.
