Jazz Legend - Benny Poole

Doors open at 7pm - $5 cover charge

Benny has traveled the world, topped the charts with Stevie Wonder, James Brown, BB King and Marvin Gaye and he is coming to UrbanBeat for a very special performance this Friday!!!!

Recognized for bringing talent to Jackson to perform with him...such as Gene Harris, Lyman Woodard, Eddie Russ, Alvin Jones, and Abbey Lincoln, whom already lived in Jackson, it assisted them in getting world known.

Performed with Grant Green, Richard "Groove" Holmes, also at concerts with the Lloyd Price Band and Jimmy Smiths Group and more.

Long time performer at the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort and other venues."A pair of funky jazz songs Poole recorded in 1967 — one of which briefly broke through on the national charts — have become collectors items, particularly in England, where Poole's name is still well-known among aficionados of the "northern soul" movement that emerged out of the '60s mod scene." - MLive Bill Chapen
