Michigan clarinetist Dave Bennett is an authentic musical prodigy (totally self-taught) who brings to life the classic sound and music of Benny Goodman with incredible technique, style, beauty of tone and naturalness. Join us as Dave Bennett entertains guests in the beautiful Carruthers Signature Ballroom at the Fitton Center for Creative Arts on Saturday, May 23, 2015 at 8:00 p.m.
Dave is truly a “young phenom,” and has performed in over thirty-five US States and Canada and has appeared with thirty orchestras for “pops” shows. Bennett has made a great impression on several of Benny Goodman’s famous band members: vibraphonist Peter Appleyard, guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli and pianist Dick Hyman all strongly endorse Dave Bennett as “the closest ever” to Goodman’s sound and style.
