Dave Bennett’s “Swing To Rock: Benny, Elvis, and Jerry Lee”
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”). A clarinet virtuoso, Bennett also plays electric guitar, piano, drums, and vocalizes. Swing to Rock features Dave and his band in music from the Swing Era to early Rockabilly and Country. Dave has been a featured soloist at Carnegie Hall with The New York Pops and has performed with his band across the USA. Join us to close out the season with Dave’s “Rockin the ‘50s” show. It always brings down the house!
