Berkeley based rock band Benvenue headlined a hometown show at Cornerstone Berkeley on August 16, 2019. Lead singer Francis Blay, guitarist Sid Slate and bassist Erik Robertson met while attending UC Berkeley and playing football for Cal. “We would stay in Bowles Hall, right by the stadium and they would have us in these locker rooms and you could hear bands. You would be coming from football practice and lying in bed and I remember saying I would want to play at The Greek,” said Benvenue lead singer Francis Blay.
