The Dave Panichi Big Band

Event dates to be confirmed: Wednesday 24 April 2019 (Monthly event)

Dave Panichi is an Australian jazz musician, trombonist and composer who began his professional musical career in 1975.

In 1981 Panichi moved to New York, where he lived for 18 years. During this time he performed with notable artists including the Buddy Rich Big Band, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Blood Sweat and Tears, Slide Hampton, Bob Mintzer, Maria Schneider, Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaughan, Joe Williams, Aretha Franklin, Mel Tormé, Peabo Bryson, Dave Liebman, Mulgrew Miller and Marc Copland.

In 2000, Panichi moved back to Australia where he is currently active in teaching, performing, and composing. He is currently a casual lecturer in trombone at Sydney Conservatorium of Music.

Drummer Buddy Rich attempted to fire Panichi during his time with Rich's band for having a beard. The whole scene was taped and included in a well-known series of bootlegs showcasing Rich's fiery temper.

Dave brings his big band to Lazybones on the last Wednesday of every month.
