8pm: ZAPF DINGBATS! Free Show

September 7, 2012

Zapf Dingbats' improvisational performance will have you thinking

variously of Dawg music, Gypsy Jazz, Second Line parades, Speakeasies,

and Juke Joints. The band’s melting-pot of musical influences is the

source of it’s unique sound. Leader David Bandrowski (guitar) sets the

tone of the band with his amazing musical vocabulary and background of

Early Jazz, Second-Line and Traditional music. Chris

Clarke (mandolin) is steeped in Old Time, Folk&Country-Blues

traditions. Doug Walker (bass) is a master of Contemporary and

Progressive Jazz. Dane Terry (harmonicas) adds a little soul from Gospel

and the Blues. The four combine to make a rich, spicy, savory, and

altogether original recipe based on a broad (and deep!) variety of

American traditional influences.
