The Village Voice calls Dave Stryker "one of the most distinctive guitarists to come along in recent years." He was awarded Best Guitarist (Fans Decision) for 2017 with Hot House magazine, plus he was recently voted once again as one of the top Jazz Guitarists in the 2018 Downbeat Magazine Critics and Readers Polls for the 10th time. Dave Stryker grew up in Omaha, Nebraska and moved to New York City in 1980. Early on, Stryker realized that as much as he loved playing standards and the jazz repertoire, he had to have something of his own to give to the music. He has recorded and published over 150 of his own compositions and has released "The Dave Stryker Songbook" with most of his original music. Dave continues to perform with The Dave Stryker Organ Trio, his Blue to the Bone Band, and The Stryker/Slagle Band. As a producer, Stryker compiled the CD entitled, "The Guitar Artistry of Billy Rogers" which is the only existing record of the brilliant jazz playing of the late underground legend who was his friend, former teacher, and member of the Crusaders. The Dave Stryker New Orleans Quartet tonight features: Dave Stryker - guitar Mike Pellera - piano James Singleton - bass McClenty Hunter - drums
