The Dave Dardine Project
"The Dave Dardine Project surprises and delights audiences with their original interpretations of traditional blues, as well as some of the familiar blues standards. Never one to go along with the crowd, Dave Dardine seeks to simultaneously return to and re-imagine the essence of what makes music "the Blues."
Influenced by such diverse masters of the guitar as the three Kings, Albert Collins, Jerry Garcia and Duane Allman, and often compared stylistically to Derrick Trucks, Dave's style of lead guitar is governed more by musicality, exploration and complex emotion than seeing how many notes can be crammed into a measure.
Although the music can be heady, the band is very much grounded in the rhythms that get people out on the dance floor.
