The Benson Brothers is a professional jazz trio based in Wellington.
Playing a mixture of jazz standards and more open jazz forms, we focus on giving our music an old-school charm, simplicity and warmth.

The trio is: Matt Benton on saxophones, Nick George on drums, and Steve Moodie on double bass. Having no chordal instrument creates space, which lends to the trio’s playfulness, making the music so exciting to be around. But, we do also have the option of adding a pianist, if requested.

We play regularly at Mojo Coffee on Bond Street in Wellington and have brought our music to plenty of weddings and corporate functions. Have a listen to our live recordings to see if we are the right band for your next event.

Reviews

"Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did at our wedding last Saturday. The music was absolutely great and loved by all - we had so many compliments and it was just what we were looking for." Alex and Tom - 13 December 2010
