If you’re a native of St. Louis, you may recognize the name Dave Black as one of the area’s most versatile and sought after guitarists, having performed and recorded with artists/groups such as Javier Mendoza (Latin), Joe Mancuso (Jazz vocalist), Bach to the Future (Prog Rock/Fusion), Amanda Raye (Country), Sadie Hawkins Day (Old Time Folk) Dangerous Kitchen (Rock/Funk), Sessions Big Band (Big BandJazz) and Farshid Etniko(Latin/Gypsy Jazz). Dave is also quite accomplished as a solo guitarist, adding yet another thread to Dave’s musical fabric of many colors. Dave is also an adjunct professor at Webster University where he teaches Jazz Guitar and Jazz Ensemble.
Harmonica virtuoso Sandy Weltman’s talents are diverse to say the least. While at home in the jazz realm, he is equally skilled in blues, Celtic, Klezmer, Latin and more. Sandy learned much of his harmonica styling while under the tutelage of harmonica wizard Howard (Flecktones) Levy.
