Dave played just the kind of music we were looking forward, very enthusiastically. His musical knowledge of the Dixieland songbook was very impressive. He was very intuitive on knowing when to play "in the background" and when the time was right to be a strolling minstrel in the midst of the crowd. The party was energized by his playing and his smile and we are definitely hoping to have him back soon!
