The word invokes the glory of a bygone era.
A time when the Rock was so immense only stadiums could contain it.
A time when a bad seat meant you probably weren’t going to see anything at the show except a cheap beer and some shirtless girls.
And that was fine.

The name of a mighty quintet of St. Louis rockers...nay...dreamers, who dare to dream that they can bring back those heady days of yesteryear. Bring back screaming guitars and killer rock poses! Bring back racks of keyboards and questionable fashions! Bring back ear splitting vocals and soul crushing bass! Bring back senseless drum solos! Bring back lava lamps and black light posters!

KING BENNY

King Benny is a Blues/Rock based band out of a small river town by the Mississippi River called Louisiana, Missouri. The band blends influences of Delta Blues of the 1920s and 30s with the Electrified Blues and Folk Music of the 1960s, as well as rock and roll from the 70s to form their sound.  Their original music prompted Original 1969 Woodstock

co-creator, Artie Kornfeld to call them "A Bluesier version of The Band".

SAINT CHARLES
the BIG (JAZZ) BAND
 

The Big (Jazz) Band was organized in 1999, drawing mainly on musicians from the Municipal Band, many of whom also played with other big bands in the St. Louis area. In 2000, the 18-piece Big Band began performing one Sunday evening each month during the summer in Frontier Park in St. Charles. Located on the banks of the Missouri River in Historic St. Charles, Frontier Park offers a fabulous backdrop to experience the music performed by the Big Band. The monthly Sunday evening concert series continues today.
