"And on the 366th Day," a once-in-every-four-years affair, spotlights the musical and lyrical prowess of Jack and Benny Lipson, aka jackbenny, Los Angeles-native twin composers, songsters, and multi-instrumentalists “bounding towards what’s next in the world of sound.” Their music speaks in a progressive harmonic language informed by classical, jazz, and musical theatre roots that complements their distinctly savvy lyrics tackling queer identity and consensual conduct to healthcare bureaucracy and more. The brothers split vocal duties while Jack tickles fancies from the piano and Benny plucks heartstrings from the bass, and percussionist Spencer Inch rounds out their mighty trio. In this at once satirical and optimistic musical bonanza, the Lipsons guide audiences on a candid tour through the delicate, curious millennial mind.

Special guests:  the fiery powerhouse singer Bella Hicks, vintage songstress Nina Herzog, Baritone Bombshell Jonnie Reinhart, guitarist John Schroeder, and musical theatre icon Valerie Perri.

When reviewing jackbenny back in July of 2018, I wrote, “I had a sensational time at my first jackbenny show and if my schedule permits, it won’t be the last.” Thanks to the added day we get gifted with every four years, on February 29, 2020 I got my chance.
