Dave Weckl Acoustic Band at Kuumbwa Jazz Center
One of the undisputed greats to ever sit behind a drum kit, Dave Weckl, has embarked on his first solo project in over a decade with his new Acoustic Band. Featuring Makoto Ozone on keyboards, Tom Kennedy on bass and Gary Meek on saxophones, this group is filled to the brim with riveting chemistry and vibrant musical conversation. Weckl is a top-call session player who can count Simon & Garfunkel, Diana Ross, Chick Corea and Robert Plant amongst his credits, but this band is not merely a vessel to showcase Weckl’s singular talents; it’s a master class in improvisation and collaboration.
Doors and dinner at 6:00 pm
Kuumbwa Jazz Center, 320-2 Cedar Street
