Wabash Ave.; 312-626-2444) welcomes back the musical duo Komango to their nightly live entertainment lineup. Komango is comprised of musicians and vocalists Cécile Savage and Calvin “Koco” Brunson. Together they pair their harmonic melodies fueled by African, French, and Brazilian traditions.

Cécile Savage was born in the Island of Martinque yet raised in Paris, France. She studied piano for many years and brought that knowledge with her when she moved to New York City and joined the Living Theater. Later she studied guitar with Ted Dunbar through the program Jazzmobile. She increased her repertoire to include electric bass with the blues harmonists Sugar blue while she toured with Memphis Slim and Willie Mabon. Subsequently, she moved to Chicago and performed jazz and blues with many notable musicians such as Jimmy Dawkins. Ultimately, this led her to perform at the 2008 Jazz Festival: Tribute to Malachi Favors. All this shaped Cécile’s musical identity to comprise of a blend of French Cabaret and American Jazz.

Calvin “Koco” Brunson is a pianist and vocalist. His accomplishments range from being the musical director for “Ain’t Misbehavin” to “The Great Nitty Gritty” and “Journey Through Forever.” He also won the prized Jeff award for the musical composition “In De Beginnin”. Being the cultural ambassador for the city of Chicago, has led him to perform in European festivals like Moers in Germany, and Nichelsdorff in Austria.

Together with their internationally influenced knowledge and of years of experience Komango brings an exceptional performance value to Benny’s. For more information please see schedule below or visit, bennyschophouse.com.
