International Soul-Jazz performing artists Michel Benebig Hammond Organ, Shem Benebig vocals and Carl Lockett guitar bring their Australasian tour to Hawke's Bay Jazz Club.

Born in New Caledonia, Michel began playing bass, accordion and electric organ in dance bands at 11 years of age. He studied classical piano at the National Conservatory of Music of Besançon in France, before switching to playing Soul-Jazz on the Hammond Organ. Michel is recognized as one of the leading Soul-Jazz-organists in the world.

In 2013 he met Soul-Jazz guitarist Carl Lockett in the San Francisco Bay area. Carl is a phenomenal, authentic, original groove master who has been astounding listeners over the years with his deep bluesy lines and time feel.

Joining them on vocals is Shem Benebig. "A singer with incredible modulation skills and perfect pitch, able to convey the nuances of emotion with a casual glance or a single note. The way she moves from the upper register to the midrange, silken." (John Fenton reviewing a performance earlier this year).

Bring your friends for a stunning night of Soul-Jazz at Hawke's Bay Jazz Club. Cash bar and meals available.
