THE DAVE CHALLIS BAND

Dave Challis isrelishing his return to play in Grimsby. Some years back he often performed with the legendary Leo Solomon Trio. That's when Dave was also Manager of BBC Radio Humberside, trying to balance his two loves - Jazz and Broadcasting. He later quit the Beeb to concentrate full time playing Clarinet and Saxes.

Over the years Dave's performed with many of the American legends of Jazz, including trumpeters Billy Butterfield, Will Bill Davison and Bill Coleman, Reedmen Bud Freeman, Bob Wilber, Ken Peplowski and Spike Robinson, and pianists Willie the Lion Smith and Ralph Sutton.

"When your on stage in that sort of company," Says Dave, "you really have to pinch yourself to make sure it's true."

Dave and his wife live in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, an ideal base for his jazz travels which take him all over the country. His Quartet includes guitarist Garry Gillyett, bassist Kevin Walker and drummer Chris Sykes. Dave also fronts a Dixieland foursome, The Dixie Dudes.
