Dave Wells

Dave Wells (1954-2014) was born in Southern California, and grew up playing trombone and touring in the Latin & Top 40 music scene, as well as performing at Disneyland and the Queen Mary. He also played trombone for artists as diverse as B.B. King and Metallica. A sought after arranger and music copyist, he was music librarian for Sony and Disney movie scoring sessions, and arranged for artists such as Chaka Kahn, Michael McDonald, and, of course, Swingtown. Dave Wells, along with Dave Eastly founded Swingtown as co-leaders in 1993, and enjoyed a long friendship and business partnership. Sadly, Dave is no longer with us, but his memory lives on as we proudly play his wonderful arrangements for the band.
