Dave Posmontier Solo Piano

Dave Posmontier has been playing piano and keyboard since age seven and has been at it professionally for the past 45 years. In 1980 he and his brother Rich formed the Posmontier Brothers Quintet and performed extensively at concerts and clubs in the Philadelphia area. They also appeared on various local radio and television shows and in 1985 produced "PBQ," an album of Dave's original music.
  
He became interested in traditional jazz in the 1990's and formed the Dixie Kings with trumpeter Stan Slotter. They performed as headliners for several years at the Wayne concert series produced by Shorty Yeaworth, who was perhaps best known for directing the 1950s cult monster movie, The Blob. The Dixie Kings also played regularly at the Chadds Ford Winery Jazz Festival as well as other venues in the tri-state area. Dave has played with Al Harrison's Dixieland band since 1995 and has performed for Tri-State Jazz Society many times since 2005 as a member of Ed Wise's New Orleans Jazz Band. He's also a member of Klingon Klezmer, an ensemble that combines Jewish party music with, among other international influences, Latin, Middle Eastern and, incredible as it might seem, Dixieland.
 
Dave has performed and recorded with many jazz artists including James Moody, Chris Potter, Mickey  Roker, John Blake, Tony Williams, Bob Howell, Chico Huff, Larry McKenna, Grover Washington Jr., David "Fathead" Newman, and  Johnny Hartman. In celebration of its 100th birthday in 2007, the renowned Settlement Music School honored 100 alumni who have made a difference in the world of music, and Dave and his brother Rich were both chosen to receive this honor. 
 
Currently, Dave is playing, composing, arranging, teaching, and participating in educational jazz concerts, workshops and clinics in schools throughout the area. He can be heard on several CDs of Philadelphia area jazz artists, and in 2010 he released "Posterity," a CD featuring original compositions and arrangements. His most recent CD, "Deep Pockets," features a live acoustic trio and is available by contacting Dave at daveposjazz@comcast.net.
