Dave PosmontierDave has been playing keyboard since the age of seven and has played professionally for the past 50 years. He majored in mathematics at Temple University in the late 1960's but played with the Temple Jazz Band and knew he would be a full-time musician after graduation.
In the 1970's, Dave played in an organ trio with Mickey Roker and Bootsie Barnes and played extensively in the Philly area. He also joined a trio with Tony Williams and Al Jackson, also notable Philly musicians. Later, Dave worked with guitarist Steve Giordano, playing contemporary, original music using piano, organ, synthesizers and voices.
In 1980, Dave, his brother Rich, and drummer Tom Cohen, formed the Posmontier Brothers Quintet and performed extensively at concerts and clubs and made radio and television appearances in the Philadelphia area. The group produced an album, "PBQ'" of Dave's original music in 1985. It was very well received by the jazz community and received airtime on local jazz radio stations.
Dave has performed and recorded with many jazz artists including Christian McBride, James Moody, Chris Potter, Duane Eubanks, Mickey Roker, Bobbie Durham, John Blake, John Swana, Mike Richmond, Bootsie Barnes, Tony Williams (sax), Bob Howell, Chico Huff, Larry McKenna, Steve Giordano, Grover Washington jr., David "Fathead" Newman, and Johnny Hartman.
Currently, Dave is playing, composing, arranging, teaching, and participating in educational jazz concerts, workshops and clinics in schools throughout the area.
