BENJIE PORECKI

Born in 1971, Benjie began playing trumpet at the age of ten. But it wasn't until he took up piano two years later that everything fell into place. Already drawn to jazz and blues, he began to practice relentlessly, and after graduating from high school and attending a semester at the Berklee School of Music, he decided to pursue music full-time.

Gigging with three different bands simultaneously provided Benjie with a lot of work and diversity - something he enjoyed. But his first passion was always jazz and blues and that became his major focus. He persisted at his craft and eventually found himself gigging with musicians like Chuck Brown, Marshall Keys and Pieces Of A Dream. It was through these experiences that he learned an almost chameleon-like ability to play many styles of music on piano, synthesizer, and organ. This versatility keeps Benjie one of the Mid - Atlantic's most in demand session and sideman.
