The Duo Books Some Holiday Gigs

Good news for fans of the Benevento Russo Duo and their oft-collaborator Mike Gordon. The Trio is re-uniting for a set of shows around New Year’s Eve, colminating in a NYE gig at the Culture Club in Florida. We were pretty sure that this was going to be happening (as previously reported) but the band finally confirmed it.

Here’s the skinny:

The Benevento/Russo Duo and Mike Gordon will once again team up for a year-end tour. This time the trio set their sights on the Atlantic Coast. The tour will begin with a Post-Christmas performance in Atlantic City at the Borgata Music Box on December 26th. On December 27th, the boys set up shop at the State Theatre in Falls Church, VA, just outside of Washington, D.C.

After taking a day to travel down the coast, the band will invade Florida, closing out the year with three very special performances across the state. December 29th finds the band at the Freebird Live in Jacksonville, FL. Jannus Landing in St. Petersburg, FL, is the site of the performance on December 30th…and the band will ring in 2006 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, at the Culture Room.

An allotment of tickets will be available to fans through both Mike Gordon and Benevento/Russo Duo’s Ticketing Sites on November 17th at 12:00 pm. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, November 25th through ticketmaster (Atlantic City will go on sale on Saturday, November 26th through ticketmaster).

And remember, December 7th, Tribeca Rock Club. Be there.
