Hello SearchParty Fans,
Happy New Years to everyone and thanks for your continued support of SearchParty - we couldn't do it without your support! Thanks to all who attended our preview concert of LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS - what a blast! We couldn't have done it without Spark & Echo Arts who commissioned the 45 minute suite. We look forward to playing it much more in 2016 (and hopefully recording it!). More info on that, a preview video and my final post on it here.
I'll keep this short and sweet (we're all very busy, I know!). I wanted to give you a quick heads up on some of our upcoming gigs in NYC over the next coming weeks, including TONIGHT. We would love to see you out there!
January 14 @ Wing Walker Music Series (Threes Brewing)
SearchParty plays LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS
SearchParty will be doing their “Brooklyn Debut” of LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS TONIGHT (Thursday 1/14) at 9pm. This is such a great music series, we’re sandwiched in between two other great bands at 8pm (Red Reiter) and 10pm (Wing Walker Orchestra). All that music for only $10. Hope you can join us at what is becoming my favorite Brewery in NYC,Threes Brewing (333 Douglass St. Brooklyn, NY). I’ll be joined by: Ashley Daneman (voice), Kris Allen (sax), Vitor Goncalves (piano), Leon Boykins (bass), and Michael W. Davis (drums).

January 28 @ Spark & Echo Arts 5th Anniversary Celebration
As mentioned, Spark & Echo Arts was the catalyst behind my newest work, and am honored to play a couple movements of it at their 5th anniversary celebration at the West Side Redeemer Presbyterian Church (150 W 83rd St.). This is a great organization and am honored to be a part of their curators and artists. You'll hear that night Ashley Daneman (voice), Kris Allen (sax), Angelo di Loreto (piano), Leon Boykins (bass), and Michael W. Davis (drums).
Get more information about this Spark & Echo Arts event here!
That's it for the moment - told you it'd be short... kind of. I'll follow up in February about our midwest tour and more information on an upcoming recording session!
All the best to you in 2016,
Benje Daneman & SearchParty
