Dave Bendigkeit and the Keepers of the Flame, with David Udolf, Chris Amberger and Akira Tana,
continue their weekly performances (now in their third year) every Monday from 7:00 to 10:00 pm at
Brisbane’s historic Seven Mile House. As veterans of the Bay Area jazz scene, they have played with everyone
from Cab Calloway, Shelly Manne and Ella Fitzgerald to Freddie Hubbard, Sonny Stitt, Rahsaan
Roland Kirk, Art Blakey and many other giants of this music. They bring a stellar collective talent to the
bandstand, where their mastery of both the complex language of jazz and the intricate rules of improvisation
yields an easy, congenial musical expression that is spontaneous, playful and intuitive.
Trumpeter Dave Bendigkeit “is, above all, an expressive soloist, one who shows that rare combination of
virtuosity and individualism which has always marked jazz’s superior talents. . . . “ - Ted Gioia - Quartet
