Benson at Forefront of Band With Two Faces

Who: Birben Variety Band
Where: Adamstown RSL Club
When: Saturday January 26, 2002

DON'T think you are mistaken if you notice members of the Birben Variety Band performing in another group with a similar line-up.

The Birben Variety Band is a band with two faces that is sometimes transformed into Peter Benson and the Allstars. Fronting the group is Peter Benson, who has a long association with music and has performed for most of his life.

In his time as an entertainer he has worked alongside Little Pattie, Brian Davies, John Paul Young and Freddie Paris. Benson is backed by the talents of some of the Hunter's leading musicians, who have each had years of experience in the entertainment industry.

Joining Benson from Birben is Peter Pajnic. Pajnic is a skilled guitarist who has performed to, and delighted, audiences around Australia and overseas.

Before settling with Peter Benson and the Allstars and the Birben Variety Band, Pajnic had a successful stint working as a performer on P&O cruise ships.

Benson and Pajnic share the stage with drummer Peter Young, bassist Howard Ward and keyboardist Craig Gleeson. Peter Benson and the Allstars are heavily involved in talent contests around the Hunter and you can catch the band at contests throughout the Hunter this year.

Peter Benson and The Allstars also perform as a backing group and the band is in high demand due to its professionalism and skillful performance.
