Marco Benevento To Tour With The Arcs, Who Just Jammed With Joe Walsh In Nashville

first_imgLast weekend, Dan Auerbach‘s The Arcs were joined by guitarists Glenn Schwartz and the Eagles‘ Joe Walsh for a surprise set at Robert’s Western World in Nashville, Tennessee. Walsh and Schwartz played together in the ’60’s rock band James Gang, producing hits like “Funk #49” and “Walk Away.”The Arcs posted a photo of the surprise set (pictured above), along with a hint toward future projects with Schwartz and Walsh, saying “Inventors part deux is gon be so ill.” The Arcs vs. The Inventors Vol. 1, released last year, was billed as the first in a series of collaborative releases from the Arcs, and included musical icons Dr. John and Los Lobos‘ David Hidalgo. We have our fingers crossed for additional collaborative efforts!Also exciting for The Arcs, JamBase released an interview with Marco Benevento this morning, where he reveals his plans to join The Arcs on the road in late April as a fill in for the Arcs’ keyboardist, Richard Swift, who will be returning home to welcome his newborn child. The keyboardists have collaborated together on Benevento’s 2014 Swift record, so, for Swift, Benevento was an obvious choice.According to Benevento, Auerbach agreed that he was the “only guy” for the role, to which he responded, “Holy shit, what a nice thing to hear.”last_img
