Billy’s Presents: Dave Bennett Band
Genre: Jazz, Rockabilly, Gospel, Country
Dave Bennet: Clarinet, Guitar
Doug Cobb: Drummer
Ed Fedewa: Bass
Jeff Kressler: Piano
Dave Bennett doesn’t fit the mold. For starters, you don’t find many jazz clarinet players who name Alice Cooper, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Chris Isaak among their influences. You also won’t find many musicians who are equally conversant with the music of Benny Goodman (the “King of Swing”) and Roy Orbison (the “Soul of Rock and Roll.”)
Bennett is a clarinet virtuoso who plays electric guitar, piano, drums, AND vocalizes. Saluting swing to rock and covering music form the Swing Era to early Rockabilly and Country, to Elvis Presley, and more.
Leading his “Tribute to Benny Goodman,” Dave has been a featured soloist at Carnegie Hall with The New York Pops (2013) and has played the show with 35 other US and Canadian orchestras, including Nashville, Detroit, Rochester, Portland OR, Houston, and Portland ME. Fifty performing arts centers across the US have had success with his presentations.
