Natalie Boeyink

Bajissima Latin Jazz is the newest project from bassist Natalie Boeyink. Featuring musical talent nurtured in North Carolina, Bajissma’s sound is driven by the lively and infections rhythms of Latin America and the Caribbean. Joining Boeyink in the quintet are trombonist Joe Dowdy, a retired member of the distinguished US Navy Band; Lynn Grissett, a masterful improviser; Carlos Garcia, a pianist; and Jon Hill, a drummer.

Darryl Murrill

Darryl Murrill began playing saxophone at age 13. He masters the alto, soprano, and tenor saxophones. Murrill has shared the stage with greats like Tom Brown and Marcus Anderson. Murrill’s roots are musically inspired and began in the church. The uniqueness of his musicality is credited to that early exposure to hymns, negro spirituals, and gospel music.

Benny Hill

For the past twenty years, Benny Hill has performed in a diverse set of musical groups and engagements, ranging from orchestra pits to cruise ships to featured artist and soloist at numerous venues across the country and abroad. 

Hill has a bachelors of music from the University of North Carolina Wilmington and a masters of Music  from Northern Illinois University. He currently resides in Wilmington, N.C., and is an adjunct professor at Cape Fear Community College.
