The 2014 Jazz & Beyond - Carson City Music Festival opens in the beautiful back garden of the Governor's Mansion with entertainment by Corky Bennett, a great musician who also happens to be very funny! He is a jazz pianist, virtuoso accordionist, hip singer, and stand-up comic, and he'll be performing with a jazz combo at the party. Be prepared for wonderful music, delicious food, wine and beer, and raffle prizes. Wear your maddest hat or wonderland outfit - costumes optional. This will be an evening to remember!
Corky Bennett began performing in Seattle at age 12 on accordion with the "Buckaroos," a local country/rock band, winning amateur contests by the dozens. He left to pursue a musical career that has taken him to the great venues of the United States, Canada, and Asia. He has appeared on many network television shows and served as musical director for name acts.
Jazz & Beyond, presented by Mile High Jazz Band Association with support from Carson City and sponsors, will continue with performances and events in Carson City through August 17.
