Dave, or Bruzza as he’s better known, has been in love with music since he was born. Raised in Michigan on records his mother and father owned, including The Beatles, Willie Nelson, and Leon Russell to name a few. Starting around 1986, he would put headphones on and play drums along with his favorite records, as time went on he developed a taste for bluegrass music, and as the joke goes, he said “If I’m gonna play guitar, I’m going to play bluegrass guitar.” From that point there was no turning back. With his friends, Mike Bont and Paul Hoffman, they began to learn how to play bluegrass. From open mics to parties, and in Bont’s basement in Kalamazoo, MI, they developed together. Greensky Bluegrass was born. Here and now, Dave has also come into his own as a solo performer and collaborator when not on the road with Greensky. He now makes his home in Denver, Colorado. Look for more solo performances and collaborations in the Rocky Mountain region during breaks in Greensky’s touring schedule.
Something downright mystical is happening on Colorado’s Front Range. The very roots of traditional acoustic music seem to sprout from the dirt, shaking their dust into the winds of change, to be breathed in and become the soul of musicians who craft their songs here. Such is the music of Wood Belly, a musical collective of Chris Weist (mandolin), Tom Knowlton (guitar), Chris Zink (dobro), Aaron McCloskey (banjo) and Taylor Shuck (bass). A Wood Belly song has its own lyrical persona and masterful arrangement; rooted in bluegrass tradition and planted solidly in contemporary innovation.
