We’ll take them when we can! Although we would’ve loved to have seen David Bromberg Quintet earlier, we’re happy they’ve been able to reschedule their show at the Wilma for Saturday, December 5, 2020. The acclaimed Americana band was originally scheduled to play on May 31st, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the show has been moved to the later date. Iff you already bought tickets, you can rest assured knowing that all originally purchased tickets will be honored for the new date.
David Bromberg’s career spans five-and-a-half decades, and includes – but is not limited to – adventures with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jerry Garcia, and music and life lessons from seminal blues guitarist Reverend Gary Davis, who claimed the young Bromberg as a son. A musician’s musician, Bromberg’s mastery of several stringed instruments (guitar, fiddle, Dobro, mandolin), and multiple styles is legendary, leading Dr. John to declare him an American icon. In producing John Hartford’s hugely influential Aereo-Plain LP, Bromberg even co-invented a genre: Newgrass. For the first time in 2008, Bromberg was nominated for a Grammy for his album, Try Me One More Time.
Bromberg’s guitar work remains a marvel; amped electric lead – both slide and fretted – and delicately powerful acoustic fingerpicking propel these songs with the same force that made him the go-to guy for acts ranging from the Eagles to Link Wray to Phoebe Snow. This is a man who can go full-on Chicago gutbucket with “You Don’t Have to Go” (a Bromberg original), then slay with the jazz inflections of Ray Charles’ “A Fool for You,” rendered here intimately solo.
Aside from Bromberg, the Quintet consists of Suavek Zanisienko, Mark Cosgrove, Nate Grower, and Josh Kanusky.
