Check Out Dave McKenna

Dave McKenna is one of the greats. I used to see him play on the Cape at the Columns restaurant in West Dennis. He was a “fixture” and I would stop by to hear him often.  He also had a gig at the Copley Plaza Hotel in Boston for many years. A famous story: he had a transistor radio always tuned in to the Red Sox game, and during the gig, he would be listening to the game while he was playing. One of the GREAT solo pianists EVER. His opening 8 bars of Thou Swell is simply amazing. 3 parts going on at once. Wow.  THANK YOU, Dave.
