Dave Ricketts, guitarist, singer, composer and Gaucho Jazz bandleader. Dave's musical path is broad, he grew up playing trumpet in band class and guitar in his own band, his early loves being the Beatles and Louis Armstrong. Drifting to SF on a whim after graduation from classical music school in New Mexico he soon landed a job with the Hot Club of San Francisco.
Dave has performed with many great contemporary musicians including Dan Hicks, David Grisman and Father Guido Sarducci. He has toured places like Iceland, Amsterdam, NYC, Mexico and Samois–sur–Seine (Django Reinhardt’s final home.) These experiences combined with his classical background have enriched Dave’s approach to music.
