If you ever wanted to hear how a jazz big band “should sound” behind a singer, DON’T MISS THIS NIGHT!!!

Peter Erskine calls Damiani’s ensemble “a bunch of skinny guys with skinny ties...

Dave Damiani & Alex Frank wrote the official anthem of Atlantic City, NJ last year and were celebrated all along the Jersey Shore...

Having worked as a bartender at the famed CHARLIE O'S JAZZ CLUB in Valley Village, CA, Dave Damiani had the opportunity to work, learn and become friends with some of the best musicians on the planet.   Legends like Earl Palmer, Marty Harris, Ross Tompkins, Sam Most, Teddy Edwards, John Heard, Roy McCurdy, Frank Capp, Ernie McDaniel, Dini Clarke, Danny Grissett, George Gaffney, Mark Murphy, and Richie Cole (just to name a few) took time to mentor Dave Damiani, share stories and chord changes.  Shortly after receiving his master's degree in Commercial Music from the California State University in Los Angeles, Dave begun his pursuit to put together the perfect band with youth and style.  His debut album "Watch What Happens" has been receiving world wide airplay.

Also, he is receiving airplay on over 300 radio stations and on Satellite Radio XM 71 (Siriusly Sinatra).  His highly anticipated next album "Midlife Crisis" is amazing and is doing fantastic.  We will see if he has any Grammy luck in 2015 with the never before recorded original song by Johnny Mandel, Marilyn & Alan Bergman "I've Been Around." 

    "You're record "Watch What Happens" is great!  You should really be proud.  I mean great and I don't just say these things."
