PHILOSOPHICAL FOLK-ROCK SINGER/SONGWRITER AND AL STEWART'S LONG-TIME TOURING PARTNER
SUNDAY, MAR 25 @ 2PM
$20 ADVANCE / $25 AT DOOR
$40 VIP (INCLUDES SOUNDCHECK - LIMITED)
In addition to a full performance, Dave has created a special VIP experience during his sound check at The Listening Room Phoenix. Special VIP guests will be invited to sit-in during the sound check, prior to the performance, and experience a "behind the scenes" look at Dave's preparation, including some great storytelling of his years performing with Al Stewart and his outstanding songwriting.
Thirty-one years ago, singer-songwriter Dave Nachmanoff saw Al "Year of the Cat" Stewart live for the first time at Royal Albert Hall in London; ten years ago, he came back to that same venue and performed with Stewart. In 2016 he reassembled the core band from the Year of the Cat album - including occasional Pink Floyd collaborator Tim Renwick and smooth jazz superstar Peter White - and enlisted their musical prowess in support of his latest release, Spinoza's Dream.
Growing up in the shadow of the nation's capital, Nachmanoff cut his musical teeth on Pete Seeger, country rock, the Kingston Trio's early revival folk, and '80s new wave, all melded with a soupçon of Brit folk a la Fairport Convention, John Martyn, and Ralph McTell. In fact, Spinoza's Dream producer Martin Levan had a guiding hand in both Martyn's Grace and Danger and McTell's Water of Dreams, two critically-acclaimed classics of the genre.
Over the course of a dozen albums and countless tours, he has shared the stage with the likes of Alison Krauss, Cheryl Wheeler, Steve Forbert, Firefall, and John Wesley Harding (among many others), at venues ranging from The Bottom Line to the Glastonbury Festival.
SingOut! has praised his "heartfelt, inspired songwriting with a delivery both biting and assured," but that's only the tip of the Nachmanoff critical iceberg. Just Plain Folks honored him with the 2001 Songwriter of the Year award, he was a finalist in the 2011 USA Songwriting Competition, and for five consecutive years he was always in the mix for the top songwriting award in the South Florida Folk Festival before finally winning Best Overall in 2002.
