The Blue Bamboo Music Center For The Arts introduces JazzPro Series Presents: David MacKenzie’s Mind Meld Quintet. We created the JazzPro Series to showcase some of the monster talent among us in Central Florida. This weekly Wednesday night series highlights local and touring artists of extremely high caliber. These are shows that you won’t want to miss!
Join us for an evening of exciting and unique jazz, featuring all original compositions by multi-instrumentalist, arranger, and composer Dave MacKenzie.
Musicians all over the world know Dave’s arrangements to be logical and well-presented, and audiences know they are also fun to hear! His sense of humor is present in every show, on a par with his stellar musicianship.
David MacKenzie is originally from the Atlantic City area where he studied with such local luminaries as George Mesterhazy, Bob Martin and Dennis Sandole in Philadelphia. After a tenure of lounge and show work he relocated to the Orlando area with his wife, Georgia, in 1989.
He has since played and arranged for such groups as Bill Allred’s Classic Jazz Band, Michael Andrew, Vivacity, the Orlando Jazz Orchestra, the Dr. Phillips Jazz Orchestra, Kalinka Klezmer and many funny-hat bands at theme parks.
Dave’s latest projects include teaming with the great trumpet player John DePaola, and his own Mind Meld Quintet featuring his original compositions.
The Blue Bamboo Music Center For The Arts is an independent performance venue and art gallery at 1905 Kentucky Ave. Winter Park FL 32789.
