The Daniel Bennett Group performs modern Jazz, fused with elements of American Folk and experimental classical music. The Daniel Bennett Group was recently nominated as "Best Jazz Group" in Hot House Magazine. Yahoo Voices calls Bennett’s music, “refreshingly capricious and trippy.” Daniel Bennett is currently touring with renowned guitarist Nat Janoff and master percussionist Matthew Feick on drums. The Village Voice raves, "saxophonist Daniel Bennett makes hay with an airy approach that's buoyant enough to conjure notions of East African guitar riffs and Steve Reich's pastoral repetition." The Boston Globe describes Bennett's music as "a mix of jazz, folk, and minimalism." Time Out New York describes the music as, "hypnotic." The band has released six critically-acclaimed albums: A Nation of Bears, The Legend of Bear Thompson, Peace and Stability Among Bears, Live at the Theatre, Clockhead Goes to Camp, and The Mystery at Clown Castle.

The Musical, the first fully improvised Off-Broadway musical to launch on a national stage. The New York Times called the show, "Witty, Likable and Ludicrous!"
