David Bromberg Quintet
Dakota Jazz Club

For Americana godfather David Bromberg, it all began with the blues. A musician’s musician, Bromberg’s mastery of several stringed instruments (guitar, fiddle, Dobro, mandolin), and multiple styles remains a marvel; amped electric lead – both slide and fretted – and delicately powerful acoustic fingerpicking propel these songs with the same force that made him the go-to guy for acts ranging from the Eagles to Link Wray to Phoebe Snow. His incredible journey spans five-and-a-half decades, and includes adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia, and Reverend Gary Davis, who claimed the young Bromberg as a son. Although he remains the proprietor of the beloved David Bromberg Fine Violins in Wilmington, Delaware he makes time to tour with his quintet.
