Some of his annual “roots music” presenters include The Sacramento Music Festival, The Southern Oregon Music Festival, The Central Illinois Jazz Festival, The Clambake Jazz Festival, and The Redwood Coast Music Festival. Dave performs at The Grand Hotel Jazz Weekend every Labor Day on Mackinac Island.
