Benny Goodman Tribute Show

Benny Goodman will forever be the King of Swing and Dave Bennett’s primary musical hero. Bennett has created new arrangements of Goodman’s popular hits and jazz classics, including Moonglow, I’ve Got Rhythm, Slipped Disc, Sing Sing Sing, and many others. His musical group has worked out harmonized riffs and ensemble parts, from the famed Goodman recordings of the 1930’s and 40’s. Their arrangements stay true to the past, yet integrate modern influences. 
 
In this Goodman Tribute, Bennett demonstrates an uncanny ability to transport the listener to the Swing Era, while adding his own refreshing intensity to Goodman’s classic hits. The music comes off powerfully fresh, vibrant, and soulful. 
 
Musical group available as quartet, quintet, or sextet.

 

Michigan clarinetist DAVE BENNETT, is an authentic musical prodigy (totally self-taught) who brings to life the classic sound and music of BENNY GOODMAN (1909-1986) with incredible technique, style, beauty of tone and naturalness. Truly a “young phenom,” Dave resides in Waterford, Michigan, (born May 18, 1984 in Pontiac, MI) and began playing at age 10 on a clarinet given to him by his grandparents. He then taught himself how to play Goodman songs by ear, listening to a tape given to him by his grandfather.
