David Robaire


David Robaire has always been one of those guys whom people trust and rely on. His unique skill set of intelligence, empathy and wit allows him to befriend and earn the respect of everyone whom he meets, from fellow musicians to students, from businessmen to customers and celebrities. The undeniable aptitude Robaire has as a jazz bassist has transferred well in his expanding role in the music world, serving since 2017 as the Manager of Music for Sam First, the newest jazz-only performance establishment in the Southland. As the booker of one of Los Angeles’ rare true jazz nightspots, Robaire has become somewhat of a gatekeeper of the latest happenings setting his sights on bringing untapped potential to fruition. Robaire is now steering Sam First’s newest project, a record label formed by the club’s owner, Paul Solomon. A slate of new records are in the works, and with Robaire at the helm, the creative futures of jazz and improvised music look bright.
