Daniel Bennett Group: Sinking Houseboat Confusion

Read "Sinking Houseboat Confusion" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

After a year of extensive touring to support last years' The Mystery at Clown Castle (Manhattan Daylight Media, 2015) the Daniel Bennett Group returns with a fresh eclectic musical blend they describe as Surf Rock + Avant-Pop + Modern Jazz.
