Dave Bennett is a virtuoso clarinetist who also plays electric guitar, drums, piano, AND vocalizes. In this performance he’ll take the audience on a journey from the Swing Era of the Glenn Miller Orchestra to early rockabilly and country with music by Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Johnny Cash. The Dave Bennett quartet performs around the country at different jazz festivals and orchestras, including with the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall, performing a variety of Swing and Early Rock music as well as era-inspired music from his albums “Don’t Be That Way” and “Blood Moon.”
