Hi friends…. I’ve had a busy year so far and it’s just getting started. I started out the year at the JEN conference in Louisville KY and I will be posting some video’s from my concert there. I had a ball playing with my organ trio with the great Bobby Floyd on organ, Jonathan Higgins on drums and our special guest the one and only Bob Mintzer on tenor sax. This is the same trio that is on my DVD “Dave Stryker Organ Trio Live” available only on this site. Closer to home I’m very excited about a brand new CD that I just recorded “Blue to the Bone IV”! It has been almost 10 years since the last Blue to the Bone CD and this one will be out later in 2012. It features Freddie Hendrix on trumpet, Steve Slagle on alto sax, Vincent Gardner on trombone, Gary Smulyan on bari sax, along with my working organ trio, Jared Gold on organ and McClenty Hunter on drums. We just played a great CD release gig for my current CD(also available right here) “Blue Strike” at the Jazz Standard and thanks for all who came out and packed the place. I also have some upcoming gigs I hope you’ll come out to if you’re in the New York/New Jersey area. My organ trio with Jared and McClenty will be at the Bar Next Door on Wed. Feb 1st, at the Robin’s Nest in Linden NJ Sat. Feb. 4th (with Steve Williams on drums) and then Fri/Sat Feb 10-11th at Cecils in West Orange NJ with Jared and Steve again. You can get all the info on my itinerary page. Hope you will check back here often and keep in touch. Look forward to seeing you at the next gig! – Dave
Hello , Happy 2012 and Welcome to my new and improved Website! I hope to be a lot more interactive with everyone now. My old site wasn’t able to be viewed on Iphones and Ipads etc, so this is the new lean and mean site. We are still adding to it everyday, so keep checking in. I will be updating my news every few days, and letting you know about my upcoming gigs, and goings on. Keep coming back as were going to be adding my CD’s for sale. This is the best place to order signed CD’s, Books, and DVD’s directly from me, with no middle-man. Hope you will check back here often and keep in touch. Look forward to seeing you at the next gig! Peace and keep swingin…..Dave
