About Karina Rykman
Karina has been slaying the bass in the Marco Benevento trio since 2016. After Ween reunited in February ’16, she was hand picked by Ween bassist Dave Dreiwitz to replace him in Marco’s band. A big Ween fan independently of this, Karina humbly explained it is one of her greatest honors to even be approached for the opportunity. Since then, Karina has toured the country (and the UK) with Benevento, playing headlining shows, festival sets, and opening for bands such as Dispatch, Vulfpeck, The Claypool Lennon Delirium, Guster, and Moon Hooch. Karina has also gotten the opportunity to play alongside musicians such as Robert Randolph, Eric Krasno, John Medeski, Billy Martin, Nels Cline, Skerik, Joe Russo, Jackie Greene, Alan Evans, Grahame Lesh, Scott Metzger, members of The Disco Biscuits, moe., Snarky Puppy, and many more.
If you’re old-school, Karina – who was born in 1993 – should give you some hope for the future. If you’re new-school, it should be known that while Karina is a millennial by definition, she is positive and hard-working, which definitely goes against the norm. Karina is living the life she loves and in doing so, is inspiring so many along the way.”
