Details: David Bromberg Quintet & Band at Aladdin Theater

"The reason man created stringed instruments. David touched them with a lover's fingers and they moaned that true love right back at him. Wood and wire and flesh spoke."
– Jerry Jeff Walker on David Bromberg

He's played with everyone, he's toured everywhere, he can lead a raucous big band or hold an audience silent with a solo acoustic blues. Here's the story of David Bromberg, or at least some of it . . .

Born in Philadelphia in 1945 and raised in Tarrytown, NY, "as a kid I listened to rock 'n' roll and whatever else was on the radio," says Bromberg. "I discovered Pete Seeger and The Weavers and, through them, Reverend Gary Davis. I then discovered Big Bill Broonzy, who led me to Muddy Waters and the Chicago blues. This was more or less the same time I discovered Flatt and Scruggs, which led to Bill Monroe and Doc Watson."

Bromberg began studying guitar-playing when he was 13 and eventually enrolled in Columbia University as a musicology major. The call of the Greenwich Village folk scene in the mid-'60s drew David to the downtown clubs and coffeehouses, where he could watch and learn from the best performers, including primary sources such as his inspiration and teacher, the Reverend Gary Davis.
