NEW ORLEANS JAZZ, SWING NATE KETNER
DAVE BENNETT JAZZ, SWING, ROCKABILLY
NATE KETNER (clarinet, sax) began his music studies and apprenticeships in California’s Central Valley and soon moved to Los Angeles to hone his skills in one of the most competitive music scenes in the US. Nate has been playing the woodwinds professionally since he was 19 years old. Naturally being a saxophonist first, the jazz idiom is where Nate finds his home. Throughout his musical career he has developed the ability to authentically play many different styles with an emphasis on jazz from the 20s to the 50s. Since 2005, he has played, written, and arranged for more than 50 different groups in a broad range of styles. No matter where his talent has taken him, he is always keen to return to his love: traditional jazz and the New Orleans style. He has performed with popular festival bands such as the Reynolds Brothers, Ellis Island Boys, Meschiya Lake and the Little Big Horns, and the Bluestreet Jazz Band, while also leading his own ensembles and groups. AT RCMF, catch Nate with Dave Stuckey's Hot House Gang, Clint Baker's Jazz Band, and Charlie & The Tropicales, as well as with Saturday night's Kings of Western Swing.

For starters, you don’t find many jazz clarinet players who name Alice Cooper, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Chris Isaak among their influences. You won’t find many musicians who are equally conversant with the music of Benny Goodman and Roy Orbison. And you probably won't find one other clarinet virtuoso who breaks from his Swing Era repertoire to sing rockabilly hits while accompanying himself at the piano or on electric guitar. Dave has been a featured soloist at Carnegie Hall with The New York Pops (2013). He made his European debut in 2008 at Switzerland's Bern Jazz Festival in a combo with jazz legends and Benny Goodman band alumni guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli and vibraphonist, the late Peter Appleyard. He has been featured with 35 U.S. and Canadian orchestras including Nashville, Detroit, Rochester, Omaha, Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver, Orlando, San Antonio, Jacksonville, Portland, OR and Portland, ME. He appears annually at the Elkhart Jazz Festival, Suncoast Classic Jazz Festival, Arizona Classic Jazz Festival, Sacramento Hot Jazz Jubilee, and Clambake Music Festival (Coos Bay, OR), among others.
