Dave has been a fixture of the Twin Cities' jazz scene since he moved to Minneapolis in the late 1950's. 

He has performed with some of the finest local and national jazz instrumentalists and vocalists. In addition to performing, he has composed and arranged music for film, radio, television commercials and various recording projects. Young at heart, the 84-year-old claims, "I have found the fountain of youth in the challenge of jazz improvisation." He is the winner of a McKnight Fellowship for Performance Excellence for the year 2007-2008. 

Dave will be appearing with Chris Lomheim on piano, Gordon Johnson on bass and Phil Hey on drums.
