Musician – Teacher – Keyboardist – Radio – Fusion For All
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, lessons and my free streaming internet radio @Live365. 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:
