with 17 Listeners
After years of making music together Brooklyn natives, the Bennett brothers have had the honor to perform alongside greats like Levon Helm, B.B. King, Bo Diddley and many more.
They were born and raised in the South West corner of Bay Ridge Brooklyn by the Verrazano Bridge. The neighborhood is known for its bars restaurants, churches and legions of rabidly loyal music fans of bands such as Hot Tuna, The Band, The Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers plus country, folk and traditional Irish music.
In the late 90’s, the brothers released “The Bennett McLaughlin Band” record with guitarist, singer, songwriter Mike McLaughlin. This led to a show playing with Rick Danko. The shows producer, Norman Clancy was able to coax Levon Helm into performing also. This was Rick and Levon’s last show together.
