Dave Good

San Diego

Dave Good started playing sax in the 4th grade, at the age of 10. That was back in 1962. By the sixth grade, he’d formed his first rock band. He and his classmates performed only one song – “Wipeout,” by the Surfaris – at the school’s talent show, but the hook was set. Dave would go on to play saxophone in many rock and blues bands over the years to come. In high school, band classmates Hollis Gentry, Carl Evans, and future Grammy winner Nathan East would introduce Dave to soul and funk and jazz music. He is currently a member of San Diego super group the Shenanigans, and has performed in jazz big bands, rock combos, R&B bands, tribute bands, and blues bands such as Chet Cannon and the Committee. Mr. Good plays tenor sax professionally, but is proficient at baritone sax, alto sax, soprano sax, and flute and clarinet. He also understands theory and brings a wealth of experience and study to lessons. He’s likewise studied with many saxophone luminaries over the years as well, including Daniel Jackson and Joe Marillo.
Dave enjoys working with musicians and has been conducting music clinics, workshops, jams, and teaching private lessons for over three years now to students of all ages and skill levels.
