Raised in Buffalo, Dave Chamberlain began playing trombone at the age of ten, inspired by watching his four cousins playing in a brass quartet on the Ed Sullivan Show. He began doubling on flute in high school, going on to earn a B.S. degree in flute, and later an M.S. in trombone. His primary teachers have been Anthony Gorruso, John Wummer, Carmine Caruso, John Swallow, and John Rojak.
Since coming to New York, Dave has added the bass trombone, tuba, euphonium, and bass trumpet to his arsenal. Band of Bones is his fourth CD as a leader. Dave's other projects are the Hora Decima Brass Ensemble (www.horadecima.com, Summit Records) and the Afro-Caribbean group Direct Latin Influence (www.directlatininfluence.com, two self-produced CDs.)
