Joe Benjamin & A Mighty Handful perform two songs at Congahead Studio. American Dream….”This song is a voice to all who came to the US, but were not born here. It describes the let downs I encountered but how I was still able to finish it all on a good note.” Exterminator….”Bed Bugs are certainly one of the biggest perks of living in New York City. When the exterminator came to help, I wondered if he could get rid of more than just the infestating bugs…”
This small jam we recored on Jan. 27th, 2015 while visiting Ron Powell in his home in California. Jorge Bermudez on Congas, Tim “Timbali” Cornwell on Shekere, and Nat Scott on Drums were also part of this small celebration.
Today we are celebrating Martin Cohen’s 76th birthday party with a live stream from Congahead studios. Like every year, we start the party with a small band led by Little Johnny Rivero followed by a jam with all the musicians at the party. Hope you enjoy. Please share.
