About Dave Bennett
Dave Bennett is a distinctive jazz clarinet player who defies traditional genre boundaries. Unlike most jazz musicians, he draws inspiration from a diverse array of artists, including Alice Cooper, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Chris Isaak. Bennett is unique in his ability to fluently navigate both the music of swing-era icon Benny Goodman and rock ‘n’ roll soul legend Roy Orbison. Bennett is not just a clarinet virtuoso; he also sings rockabilly hits while playing the piano or electric guitar.
