Dave Bennett Quartet

The Dave Bennett Quartet enthralls audiences with toe-tapping swing, moody blues, and emotional ballads, all performed with deft touch, virtuosity, and style. Not only does the quartet feature music from the Swing era, but they also touch on country, rockabilly and pop, with original brand-new jazz compositions thrown in. Audiences will hear the influences of Benny Goodman, Pete Fountain, Jerry Lee Lewis, even Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel in this group’s music.

 

“I’m thankful that the musical style I feel strongest about seems to connect with people on a deep emotional level. If it is pleasant to the ear or it strikes an emotional chord, then I feel I have done my job, ” explains Dave Bennett.

 

While Bennett primarily leads on clarinet and voice, he also performs Jerry Lee Lewis classics on piano and entertains with a dueling “drum battle.”  A clarinet virtuoso, Bennett began playing along with Benny Goodman records at age 10. His career spans 20 years. He has been a featured soloist at Carnegie Hall, and along with his quartet, has played music festivals throughout the U.S. He recently released Blood Moon, an album featuring five original songs along with six standards.
