MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THE SAVANNAH JAZZ FESTIVAL!

SJF 2016 Artwork

The 35th Annual Savannah Jazz Festival is set to take over our fair city September 18-26, for which Benedetto has always been a major sponsor!

A little about our artwork this year: jazz piano legend, composer, arranger and multi-Grammy recipient Bob James created this instrumental bird-in-flight in 2013 specifically for the Savannah Jazz Festival. Sadly, bassist Ben Tucker passed away the year that Bob’s art was to be featured, and CJA’s Tom Kenkel created a Ben Tucker tribute poster in its place.

This year we are honored and grateful to feature Bob’s art! It is a tribute to his years living on Skidaway Island, and takes its form from a photo Bob took from the marsh near his home.

With the passage of the federal education law –Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) – NAMM members, artists and other industry influencers will meet with their Congressional Representatives to thank them for passing ESSA, and to reinforce the importance of music being designated as significant to a well-rounded education. Source

A NATURAL BEAUTY

S2345 BambinoEliteNAT_FV3_MikiMusical_051916Naturally beautiful! The finish on this Bambino Elite lets all of the natural beauty of the spruce top and maple back/sides/neck and koa binding really speak for themselves! A very custom guitar with floral sound holes and inlays makes this a stunner…headed for Japan!
