Tyron Benoit Band
May 19 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Tyron Benoit hails from Houma Louisiana, where music and culture are plentiful. His set list includes zydeco, country, new wave, rock and whatever else he wants too play. And it’s all good.
“Growing up, around the house, I remember hearing a lot of classic country: George Jones, Hank Williams (Sr. and Jr.), Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, and Ernest Tubb. Going to my grandpa’s house is where I think the Cajun and Folk influences came from. He was a fantastic fiddle and harmonica player. But when we left the house, it was Led Zeppelin, Toto, and Steely Dan. Everybody was into classic rock and it was good!”
A former Marine, actor, guitarist, keyboardist, accordion player, singer, and songwriter— Tyron released his debut album, “Waitin’ On Friday,” on May 27, 2022. The album was produced by Grammy-nominated, Oscar-winner Donald Markowitz, and features guitarist Shane Theriot (Hall and Oates, Neville Brothers, Willie Nelson), drummer Doug Belote (Zachary Richard, Maria Muldaur, Jerry Douglas) , keyboardist David Torkanowsky (Rickie Lee Jones, Sonny Landreth, Bobby Rush), and bassist Kevin Scott (Bernard Purdie, Eddie Roberts, Nate Wood).
We’re doing this show on the patio at WIT Cellars – ’cause it’s just too hard to sit still while Tyron’s playing. We will ALSO be featuring “special New Orleans-style dishes” prepared by Chef John Gray and the staff from The Prosser House. (ticket choices include both a dinner or no dinner option)
