David Morse - Keyboards
Inspired by his mother who played stride piano style, Dave grew up exposed to improvisational music.
He learned music theory through playing trombone, and he had his first experience performing in a high school rock band, playing guitar and horn parts. He later studied jazz piano with a big band era pianist in Princeton, NJ.
Improvisation was further encouraged in the psychedelic jam bands in the 60’s and 70’s. He then played the early cover-band rock circuit and rock music festivals in New England. He recorded with Ripp Van Winkle and The Sleepy Hollow Boys, a country show band in Nashville, TN. Later he recorded with Lucille and The Steamers in Boston. Lucille and The Steamers was a high energy R&B band opening for blues legends such as Koko Taylor and Maria Muldaur, while frequently playing at the original House of Blues in Cambridge, MA.
These experiences bring a balance of technical expertise with a creative edge to original or cover pop, rock and country music. Dave is at home playing Hammond organ, acoustic or electric piano. With his multi-keyboard stage equipment, he adds string, synthesizer, and horn parts. Probably most of all, Dave understands that the primary purpose of playing live music is to entertain the crowd through showmanship and high-energy music.
Dave enjoys hanging with his family on his days off and a furthering his creative itch with photography.
