HOWARD TO THE RESCUE

A lot of luck and some great timing came in handy this past weekend when Benedetto Artist, Dan Faehnle‘s beloved Benny was accidentally damaged in the Pink Martini tour bus. Fortunately, Howard Paul happened to be driving back to Savannah from the South Jersey Jazz Festival with the shop Benny handy. He was able to hand off the guitar just before downbeat at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C.!
