Dave Stryker + Bobby Floyd

The musical powers from guitarist Dave Stryker + pianist/keyboardist/organist Bobby Floyd combined to pay homage to the great Wes Montgomery prove to be nothing less than a show-stopping performance.

Whether you’ve heard guitarist Dave Stryker leading his own group (with 33 CD’s as a leader to date), or as a featured sideman with Stanley Turrentine, Jack McDuff, and many others, you know why the Village Voice calls him “one of the most distinctive guitarists to come along in recent years.” Hot House magazine awarded him Best Guitarist Fans Decision for 2017.  He was recently voted once again as one of the top Jazz Guitarists in the 2022 Downbeat Critics and Readers Polls for the 15th time.
"... Stryker possesses golden tone, urgent style, and the kind of heated technique that can blow the roof off any gig." - Jazztimes

The passion with which Bobby Floyd plays piano, organ and keyboards are the result of his natural ability, his love of music, and years of practice.
