Dave Ihlenfeld

Dave Ihlenfeld grew up in St. Louis, where at age 3 he started picking out bass lines on the family piano while listening to Motown tunes on the radio. Lessons followed, to be abandoned in favor of viola, euphonium, and finally the tuba, but a piano opening in his high school jazz band provided the musical outlet he was seeking. Fame and fortune did not follow, so he attended DePauw and Indiana Universities, and then worked out of Indianapolis for too many years as a professional musician. Since 1996 he has resided in Arizona, where he is in demand as a performer on jazz piano and tuba

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
