Chris Dave & The Drumhedz
Chris Dave is one of the most revered and in demand musicians of his generation. His eccentric approach to the drum set and his ability to adapt to any musical setting, whether jazz, hip-hop or R&B, has put him in a category of his own.
Chris has been around the world and back, playing for and recording with some of music's most established and iconic artists including: Adele, Maxwell, D'Angelo, Beyoncé , Wynton Marsalis, Pat Metheny, Me'shell N'Degeocello, Sonny Rollins, the Robert Glasper Experiment, Pharoahe Monche, Mos Def, Erykah Badu, Common, Talib Kweli, and more.
Born in Houston, Texas, drummer Chris Dave, also known as Chris "Daddy" Dave, began his music career in the late 1980s. Today he is reckoned to be at the peak of his artistic powers – a drummer who is creating the sound of the future in jazz and jazz-related music.
He comes to the Cork Jazz Festival with his stunning band The Drumhedz of top rank US stars, for a funky show to remember!
