David takes requests, too!

David is an accomplished trumpet player in constant demand throughout the New England area. Over the years he has worked with Arthur Fiedler, Sandler and Young, Phyllis Diller, Henny Youngman, Ray Bolger and others. If it's jazz, swing, and dance music you're looking for, David would be happy to help you plan the music for your event. ( wedding, corporate meeting, etc.)

David leads a dixieland quintet that has garnered rave reviews and features virtuosos on tuba, clarinet, trombone, banjo, and trumpet. It's darn near impossible to stay still while listening to this group. "...truly music to make you happy."

Unsolicited Praise

David did a one man show here - Music through the Decades - which drew over 80 people. With trumpet and keyboard he sang and played his way through the decades to a backdrop of Norman Rockwell posters. The audience loved the journey; they sang along and kept him going for an extra 15 minutes with their enthusiasm. Read more.

...he rocked the house with a variety of songs that had a little something for everyone. When he sang Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World," he got a standing ovation.
In short, David is an incredible performer, talent, personality, and musician. He is dependable and easy to work with. I recommend him highly. Read more.
