THE SC BLOG got lucky once again and snagged a real life Rock-n-Roller for a quick Q & A session.
This time around it’s our honor to pick the brain of Grace Potter & The Nocturnals’ guitarist Benny Yurco. The full band plays Aliante Station tonight and Green Valley Ranch next Friday, April 20th. This act has a reputation for tearing it up live. Trust us, we’ve see ‘em, that rep is well earned.
Thanks to Benny for putting his Gibson down for a few minutes to chat with us.
