Art Show Line Up

Gail Benevente

Gail is the co-owner of the A&G Dance Company with Mr. AJB! She is honored to be a part of AJB and is really excited about this show in particular because of all the people involved. It's a real community of people coming together to express original art. Gail has choreographed the entire live show (with Adam) and has been rehearsing all the dancers a few times a week in preparation. She loves choreographing to Adam's music because it has so much meaning to fuel her ideas while coming up with concepts in movement. She isn't as interested in tricks and fancy footwork as she is in intention behind each move. What does this movement say to you? How does it make you feel? Does it provoke you? She hopes you have these answers...

Jael Baker

Jael is a professional dancer living on the East End of Long Island. She has been dancing since she was a little girl and enjoys all forms of dance, including Ballet, Contemporary and Jazz. Jael has traveled extensively and made performing a focus in her life as well as, creating original art works in jewelry metal works. Jael says: “As an artist myself, I appreciate what Adam and Gail do in their company and am excited to be part of their work!” Jael is also creating a new jewelry line for AJB and it excited to share her work.

Sara Jo Strickland
Dancer/Director of the Hampton Ballet Theatre School

Kira Merlino

Kira was in the "Anthem" "Break These Lies" and "Tell Me" music videos. She also is an AJB model. She will be at the AJB Art Show modeling and dancing!
Kira says: "Music intoxicates me, Hip-hop music especially, awakens something inside of me. I heart dancing for AJB because his music sends a great message. As an independent Artist, he sets a strikingly unique example."
Thanks Kira for being such a great part of AJB!

Barbara Rosenthal

Barbara has been dancing for years studying ballet with Sara Jo Strickland, director of Hampton Ballet Theatre School (HBTS) and taking hip hop and tap with the A&G Dance Company (A&G). Barbara is the reason that A&G now work with HBTS!
Barbara has performed with AJB in the past in the "Anthem" music video as well as a couple of live shows including the 1st AJB Art Show and is looking forward to dancing in the 2nd this August!

Megan McGill

***Bio Coming Soon***

Rachel Longobardi

Rachel is a 30 year old college student currently attending Stony Brook University for sustainable studies, focusing on renewable energy as a possible career choice. She loves music, writing and photography, as well as running outdoors and working out. Rachel loves AJB because she wants to be part of something different and revolutionary.

Kitty Nerd AKA Adrianne

Adrianne is excited to be a part of AJB and had a lot of fun modeling with them! She was happy to have them on the Jason Galka show and she looks forward to being a part of their second annual art show in Bridgehampton this summer as a dancer and promotional model.

Jimi Durso

Jimi Durso (or Twang!, as he’s also know) has been making music for what seems like centuries. From the Blues-Rock of his high school years to Progressive Rock and Classical music in college to jazz and avant-garde (as well as a lot of Ska in the 90’s), his quest for variety has been never ending. His latest output has been in the form of Coincidence Machine, a duo w/ Matt Baranello that, though mainly rock & roll based, does explore many of these fringe areas of music. Both Coincidence Machine and his other project with Matt, Piltdown Man, are being released by AJB Productions. You can also hear Jimi's tremendous guitar work on 4 songs of Adam Baranello's New Album: Raise the Flag.
