Friday, August 17, 2018 – Dave Bennett’s Rockin’ the 50’s
Dave Bennett doesn’t fit the mold.

If anyone can return the clarinet to its heyday, it’s Dave Bennett, who fuses serious jazz improvisation with a host of modern pop influences. A crowd favorite in Lexington for many years Dave is returning to our stage to wrap up the Music in the Park season in grand style!
