Bennetts Wet Paint Company will be at Cup of Joe on October 20th from 6pm - 8pm.
The recently formed band, Bennetts’ Wet Paint Company, brings together the diverse talents of three generations of Victoria musicians. Ian Bennetts (and his twin brother Jonathan) are British transplants with serious musical history, dating back to the late 50s, when they were the first to busk Rock & Roll and Skiffle music in Paris and around Europe and the Middle East. They then recorded several singles for French Columbia Records and toured opening for Johnny Hallyday (the French Elvis) and others. Some of their compadres included Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Richard & Mimi Farina and other folk stars of that era.
The band consists of:
Dave Harris on banjo, harmony vocals, slide guitar, fiddle, harp and suitcase bass drum
Sharon Wadsworth on washboard, kazoo and vocals
Ian plays 12 string guitar and leads the vocals
Peter Janz on second guitar, kazoo and harmony vocals

All Ages welcome
