January 26, 2016: Dave’s Finale in the Forest

All good things must come to an end.  After nearly 200 Tuesday nights over nearly five years, this was Dave’s last night as host of Tuesday in the Forest. Guest for the night was the new host, Mathias Matthew (Dead Air), who will be continuing the night in his own style. There was a large cast of returning special guests throughout the evening, including Steven Tuthill, Dan Austin, Ryan Cady, Ray Straight, Kenny McNabb, Lauren Mangus, Fabian Halabou, Ben Luckett, Eugene Strobe, Scott Bragg, Adam Stanfel, Jenny Thompson and Ray Thompson. It was a celebration of an era and a fitting finale of record enthusiasts sharing songs with each other and nerding out on the amount of good music in the world.

Dave will continue  playing records around town at special events, including a monthly early R&B and soul night at Tom’s Tavern. Check his DJ site for more information and links to new mixes and tunes.

November 17, 2015 – Allen Toussaint Tribute with Brandon Moss

itf-brandomoss-remakeAfter having to cancel on Brandon earlier in the year due to the flu, we finally had our long awaited collaboration between the turntables. When Allen Toussaint passed away the week before, I had to pay tribute to the great producer and songwriter. All the songs I played all night involve Toussaint as either writer, producer or arranger. Even after a whole night, there are tons of great songs left unplayed. Brandon did a great job of rolling with the theme, playing lots of New Orleans music, plus some newer indie jams too.
