Musician – Teacher – Piano – Keyboardist – Dave Latchaw
I am musician Dave Latchaw. I spend most of my time as an independent recording artist, music educator, student, and fan of the fusion of Jazz – Hip Hop – Funk – Rock – World music. Latch Music is where I promote my solo piano and keyboard music, performances, gigs, music education and lessons. Besides freelance solo piano and group work, I can be heard performing with my trio featuring Brian Derek on bass and Kimball Glaspie on drums as well as the Fort Wayne Funk Orchestra, winners of the 2014 Battle of the Bands.
Thanks Everyone! The Fort Wayne Funk Orchestra won 5 Whatzup Whammys for 2014 – most ever in the history of the Whammys. We took home Performer of the Year, Best New Performer, Best Funk Band, Best Oldies, and Best Live Band! We appreciate all your support!!!!!! Check our very cool whatzup article here:
At the end of January – 2016, LIVE365 will shut it doors. Latch Music Radio will be off the air. The small webcaster options were not renewed this past December. To continue to promote Jazz Rock World Fusion on Latch Music Radio becomes too expensive without the small webcaster provisions. Thank you for all the support the last 13 years. I really appreciate all the music sent to me to be played and the people I have met around the world because of Latch Music Radio.
Latch Music Radio @ Live365 is where I used to broadcast a wide array of jazz rock world fusion music from the 70’s through today. A sampling of some of the great musicians and bands you can hear @ Latch Music Radio would be Alex Machacek, Allan Holdsworth, Bill Bruford, Brand X, Brian Derek,Chick Corea, Frank Zappa, Gary Husband, George Duke, Herbie Hancock, Jaco, Joe Zawinul, John McLaughlin, King Crimson, Krzysztof Misiak, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Miles Davis, Pat Metheny, Scott Kinsey, Stanley Clarke, Ranjit Barot. Return to Forever, Trey Gunn, Tribal Tech, Trilok Gurtu, Weather Report and more. Here is some information on how to submit your jazz rock world fusion recordings to Latch Music Radio.
