According to his website, the late “Benny” Benack was at the forefront of the Pittsburgh jazz scene in the 1960s and '70s. A talented trumpet player, Benack was made famous by his song “Beat'em Bucs” and was a staple at Pittsburgh Pirates and Pittsburgh Steelers games. The Benny Benack Orchestra played the styles of traditional jazz, dixieland, and swing. He was known as the "King of Dixieland" in Pittsburgh for many years. His son Peek continues the family musical tradition as Benny Benack Jr., playing trumpet, clarinet, and saxophone.
