Dave Wiffen Quintet

March 29, 2014 @ 5:30 am – 8:30 am


David Wiffen is one of the favourite jazz players in the local music scene–though his musical reach extends far beyond Waterloo Region.  In addition to being on faculty at WLU’s music school, he has toured with the Tommy Dorsey Big Band, and the Peter Appleyard Orchestra, also sharing the stage with Aretha Franklin and Nathalie Cole at various times. David can play any style – jazz, rock, blues, and classical music and his muscular, soulful sound makes him the “go to” tenor man in the region.  The band for his jazz room performance features the cream of the region’s musicians, including virtuoso guitarist  Dave Thompson (Susan Aglukark, Kelly-Lee Evans). The Rhythm section features Clarke Johnstone on bass, Dave O’Neill on drums and Ron Fekete on piano
