Orange Television

Hailing from the western New England region, ‘OTV,’ as their fans call them, have been developing a loyal fan base from Vermont down to New York. These rockers have it all- excellent musicianship, tight interplay, and exquisite vocals. Setting this band apart is their unique song crafting that immediately draws the listener into a world of intricate musical storytelling, yet through catchy riffs and melodies. Be sure to listen to their latest EP, “Welcome to the Pink House,” to taste the orange tea (v) that’s been brewing.

Jim Benitez

A self-taught Latin percussionist since the age of 12 when his father handed him Cal Tjader’s 1960 “Latino” album featuring Mongo Santamaria and Willie Bobo back in 1966, and an LP fiberglass conga and told him, “Here, learn to play right with these”, he’s been living and breathing Latin Jazz since. A computer network engineer during the day, Jim keeps busy as part of a team overseeing the health and security of the computer network of a major Massachusetts retail corporation. Jim is also a US Army Vietnam Era veteran and served as an Air Traffic Controller where he admits, “That was my first real foray out in radio broadcasting directing all those aircraft”.
