The Civic Auditorium Presents Musical Legends Marc Benno and Sugar Boy Myers

Treat yourself to an unforgettable performance from Grammy Award-winner Marc Benno, who will be accompanied on drums by blues favorite Sugar Boy Myers, at 7:30 pm Friday, August 26.

Sugar Boy played for the Freddie King band and accompanied a number of iconic legends such as Eric Clapton and Leon Russell.

Guitarist, songwriter and keyboardist Marc Benno was performing in Dallas in the 1960s with rock icons Steve Miller, Boz Scaggs, the Eagles and ZZ Top. After moving to LA he and Leon Russell recorded a pair of albums as the duo The Asylum Choir. Billboard Magazine considered these recordings as rock classics. Benno then skyrocketed to fame after appearing on The Doors’ iconic album “L.A. Woman”, the last LP before Jim Morrison's untimely death.

Touring with Rita Coolidge as lead guitarist, Benno was also a band leader opening for The Byrds at Royal Albert Hall in London. After two years serving as Lightnin Hopkins bandleader and lead guitarist, Benno formed Marc Benno & The Nightcrawlers, opening concerts across America for Humble Pie and The J. Geils Band.

The band will also be comprised of Reno King on harmonica, Jackie Don Loe on guitar, Neal Marshall on bass, and Lewis Fluellen on keys.
