Matt Benwell

Matt grounded his groove playing in the Dorset and Bournemouth Youth Jazz Orchestras and has now built up 20 years of gig experience.

He has subsequently played alto and tenor saxophone with cover and original bands in the north-west and now the north-east. Before joining the Groove Allstars he plied his funk with the Liverpool-based12-piece cover band, Spread the Jam and was a member of the energetic reggae, funk and afro-beat outfit, We, the Undersigned.

These musical styles permeate his soloing and the dynamic lines of the GA horn section.
