Dave Greer's Classic Jazz Stompers

Dave Greer’s Classic Jazz Stompers has been a regular part of the Dayton music scene for over 3 decades. This 8-piece jazz band has a wide repertoire of music that, while drawn from the recordings of the great jazz artists and composers of the 1920s and 1930s, is always as fresh as the moment played! The Dave Greer has spent a lifetime studying the music and lore of the late 1920s and early 1930s, when classic jazz evolved into small-band swing
Playing banjo and guitar and singing in a whiskey baritone, Dave Greer's voice has been described as a combination of Jimmy Durante, W.C. Fields and Ted Lewis as he seeks to preserve lyrics that should never be permitted to drift into oblivion
Musicians: Leader Dave Greer on banjo and guitar,
Chris Moore on cornet, 
Eric Greiffenhagen on reeds, 
Bill Gemner on trombone, 
Mike Darrah on piano,
 Greg Dearth on reeds, 
Jim Leslie on drums, 
and Chris Berg on bass. 
Dave Greer’s Classic Jazz Stompers has carried its music to jazz clubs and festivals, to cities in eight different states, the District of Columbia, Canada, and Belgium. This year of 2016 they performed at three Midwest Jazz Festivals: the June Elkhart Jazz Fest in Indiana, the August Bix Memorial Jazz Festival in Iowa and the March Bix Fest in Racine, Wisconsin. Their latest CD is “Dance off Both Your Shoes” available for only $15; call Dave Greer at 937-272-4459. Since their last CD, there have been three changes in personnel, each of whom adds a special spice to a well-established musical brew. Bill Gemmer has a long history in the world of swing music, and he covers the entire range of the trombone with remarkable facility. Chris Berg has a widespread and well-deserved reputation as one of the best string bass players in the idiom. Mike Darrah is gaining an equally enviable reputation with perfect touch and timing on the piano
