Gregg Bendian


Gregg Bendian was born on July 13th, 1963 in Englewood, New Jersey. His family lived in Fairview NJ, until moving to Teaneck NJ at the age of seven. Gregg grew up in a house where music was always in the air.

His parents, Martin and Patricia, were great music lovers and he was exposed to a wide range of music very early on in life. From Sinatra and Tchaikovsky to Simon & Garfunkel, Thelonius Monk, Miles Davis and The Beatles - The Bendian household enjoyed it all. This no doubt had a huge impact on the way Gregg approaches music today. In 1971 The Bendian family moved to Teaneck and this had a profound effect on Gregg's artistic development. The town had an excellent school system and one of the finest arts programs in the country. For the first time he was directly exposed to various forms of African-American culture. He heard jazz, funk and R&B music at many of his friend's homes. A new world was opened.

He may have been all light cymbal work and gentle pulses with PMG, but on albums like The Sign of Four (Knitting Factory, 1997)--a freewheeling session with Metheny in a “beyond"-Song X (Nonesuch, 1985) ...
