Donny Benét

is playing Vintage Vibes '23 — find them on day one, April 1st 2023

A third generation musician, Donny moved to Sydney in 2000 to study jazz double bass at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music with renowned teacher Craig Scott. Paying his dues, Donny honed his skills playing with Australian jazz masters Mike Nock, Bernie McGann and Vince Jones whilst being on the forefront of jazz as a member of the band Triosk.

After 10 years of performing both in Australia and throughout the world, a chance encounter at a vintage synthesizer shop in Tokyo led to Donny purchasing his first drum machine, which reconnected him to his love of funk and electric bass. The release of his first album Don’t Hold Back in 2011 led to the shift from jazz double bassist to solo artist and electric bass freelancer in the pop/indie scenes. The release of The Don in 2018 ignited Donny’s newfound and busy international career. Back to back sold out European, US and Australian tours, festival appearances and a fruitful writing period placed Donny in an excellent position to release his latest album Mr Experience in early 2020.

Forever a lover and student of the bass, Donny is at home performing on the stage or in the studio.
