John Bennett – Sluggo The Skullcrusher
John has been performing in New York City since moving from North Carolina 5 years ago. You can see him act and sing on various stages in the city, you can stomp your feet at one of his rock or bluegrass shows, or you can carelessly “throw your hands in the air” at one of his hip hop shows. You can not show up late to the party when he is grilling, or you will surely go home hungry. John is thrilled to be a part of this Skullcrushing team.
