Send a link to a friend
[May 10, 2017]
- A multi-instrument phenomenon, DAVE BENNETT is a clarinet virtuoso
who plays electric guitar, piano, drums, AND vocalizes!
One of the only artists saluting the Roots of Pop,
Bennett covers music from the swing era and Rock-n-Roll
to country, Elvis and the Beatles.
Dave brings his Roots of Pop show to Lincoln
on Monday, May 15 at the Hargrove Chapel Auditorium at Lincoln
Christian University as the final concert of this season’s
Lincoln Land Concert Association series.
The quartet consists of Dave on clarinet, guitar, piano and
vocals; Doug Cobb on drums; Todd Weed on piano; and Kurt Krahnke
This show will not only showcase Dave’s clarinet, but his fine
voice as well as his famous “rockabilly” guitar and wild piano.
Backed by their full repertoire of swing, Dixieland and Benny
Goodman standards, they will branch out with Elvis, Roy Orbison
and other country and rock music.
Dave Bennett, a Michigan native, is an authentic musical prodigy
(totally self-taught) on his clarinet, which was given to him at
age 10 by his grandparents. He then taught himself to play Benny
Goodman songs by ear, listening to a tape given to him by his
grandfather. He was only 14 when he began traveling all over the
US with several Michigan based Dixieland bands. Now we discover
that he is also an excellent singer and plays a “mean” guitar
and wild piano. What more can a musician do?
