David Bromberg Quintet 2018
If you have never attended a David Bromberg concert, you are in for an unforgettable experience! The guitar virtuoso, bandleader and former session man and his band of masterful musicians will enthrall you with an eclectic mix of blues, country, jazz and folk that is impossible to classify. On his latest album, Use Me, the Grammy-nominated performer taps friends such as Linda Ronstadt, Vince Gill, Dr. John, Levon Helm, Keb Mo, Los Lobos, John Hiatt and Widespread Panic. Bromberg can awe an audience into pindrop silence with a solo acoustic blues or goose his fans to their feet with a bluegrass reel by his Quintet or an R&B romp by his Big Band. David Bromberg has spent his life absorbing traditional music from its surviving creators and their recordings so convincingly while adding his own instrumental twists that he has become a part of musical tradition itself, as close to the source of American roots music as anyone alive. Folk, blues, bluegrass, ragtime, you name it he has become The Real Deal.
