Dave Potter

Dave Potter is quickly becoming known as a formidable musician. He has performed with many well-known jazz artists and recorded 4 albums with Jason Marsalis. Following his graduation from Florida State University in 2005, he was chosen from a national pool of applicants to be a member of the Louis Armstrong Quintet at the University of New Orleans.

However, after several days of intense meditation he declined the offer and returned to Florida State University, where he received his Master’s Degree in the winter of 2008 after further collaboration with his mentor Marcus Roberts
