In 2016, Karina joined the Marco Benevento trio, replacing her “guru” Dave Dreiwitz (Ween). In the many U.S. tours, trips to Japan and the UK since joining the band, Karina has developed a permanent and powerful presence in the band, playing headlining shows, festival sets, and opening for bands such as Dispatch, Vulfpeck, The Claypool Lennon Delirium, Guster, and many more. Aside from her gigs with Benevento, Karina’s musical résumé has almost grown too large to keep track of, but includes highlights we’d be remiss to exclude: a performance on the Today Show with pop artist Julia Michaels, a now-famous soundcheck at Madison Square Garden with Phish, playing in the backing band (in front of Howard Stern, at Radio City Music Hall) on America’s Got Talent with a flame-spewing helmet on her head, gigs with the Everyone Orchestra (featuring Robert Randolph, Al Schnier, Alan Evans, Aron Magner, and many more), one-offs with the likes of John Medeski and Billy Martin, and finally, the formation of her own band.
The namesake band features Karina on bass and vocals, Adam November on guitar (and loopers and effects), and Chris Corsico on drums. Though initially an all-improv act, in the calendar year where that changed (2019) quite a bit happened. Karina put out two singles: “Plants” and “Elevator” – the songs have garnered six-figure streaming numbers + air time on Sirius XM Jam On. A few live highlights include opening for Khruangbin at the Capitol Theatre, playing moe.down and Hulaween, headlining Rough Trade in the Spring then moving up to Brooklyn Bowl in the Fall, opening for Guster at Higher Ground, and headlining clubs across the North East. The group has welcomed special guests including Skerik, Nels Cline, Robert Walter, and more. And this is just the beginning.
