Bryan Benner and the Pool Boys feature the songs of our American singer/songwriter (that’s me, Bryan!) joyfully arranged for guitar, cornet and double-bass in a way that fills the listener with hope and elation.
Ecstatic dance, tearful ballads and sexy grooves make up only a part of the rich, colorful and completely original program we have to offer. It goes a little something like this:
This year will be the first time we have made it to the studio to record a full album together and we couldn’t be more excited to share these songs with you.
Don’t miss your chance to be one of the first people in the world to have a copy!
Once we’ve achieved our funding goal we will produce a multipurpose album, perfect for long car rides, Sundays at home, or vigorous baby making.
Bryan Benner and the Pool Boys
Bryan Davis Benner- (Voice and Guitar) Bryan comes from Orlando, Florida and has been playing his music all over Europe for more than 10 years. Though he is a trained opera singer and classical guitarist, Bryan most strongly identifies as a modern day Troubadour.
Christof Zellhofer- (Cornet/Backing Vocals) Born in Maissau, Lower Austria, Christof is a highly sought after trumpet player as both a classical and jazz soloist. For playing with the Pool Boys he has chosen the smooth sound of the cornet. Christof also provides all the tasty vocal harmonies.
Sebastian Küberl- (Double-Bass) Whether it’s jazz, classical or world music, Sebastian always brings that special funk. Also born in Lower Austria, he is one of the busiest young bassists on the scene. He also just happens to be a published poet as well.
