Joe Benjamin & A Mighty Handful’s Video Premier of “That Text”

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

The wonderful guys of Joe Benjamin and a Mighty Handful were lovely enough to give us the pleasure of debuting their new video for the song, “That Text.” This will be first single off the group’s new album due to hit the airwaves early next year.

Joe Benjamin and a Mighty Handful are a NYC band that’s putting a new swing on an old familiar sound. Think of them as an indie rock version of Michael Bublé and his band. One part rock, one part pop, one part swing, one part jazz…shaken, not stirred for something totally unique. Joe, a native to Germany, is backed by 11 stellar musicians from all over NYC.

Here’s what Mr. Benjamin had to say about the video: “The video to “That Text” was produced in Passau, Germany during our ‘Imma No Do’ Tour 2015 that led us though Germany. It tells the story of the song whilst also showcasing and introducing the entire band. This is our first music video and it was important for us to especially highlight the size of the band and the particular characters in it.”

The band will be performing tonight at Rockwood Music Hall (196 Allen St) on Stage 2 just after midnight. They will be screening the video for all before they hit the stage. The show is free for those 21 and up.
