Dave Moorwood

Welcome to the Website of Dave Moorwood, guitarist, banjoist, bass player, bandleader, arranger and vocalist in the traditional jazz idiom.

Dave has been playing guitar and banjo with a wide variety of bands and groups since his schooldays, but since 2004, on finishing an eight year stint with the Pete Allen Jazz Band, he has been concentrating on his own projects: the Rascals of Rhythm and the Big Bear Stompers.

Over the years he has additionally been found playing for bands such as Terry Lightfoot, Max Collie, Phil Mason and Pete Allen. He presently still works for Pete Allen, (the full band and the Reeds & Rhythm), Brian White (the French Quarter All Stars) and Graeme Hewitt on a regular basis, and periodically with John Petters, Barry Palser, John Shillito, Roger Marks, Matt Palmer and many others.
