Dave Eshelman

Dave Eshelman, trombonist, arranger, music professor, all around good guy and super hero. One night, Vince was stuck in traffic on the Golden Gate bridge trying to get to the gig. It was time to hit when Joe turns around to kick off the first tune. "Wow, no drummer!" Dave quickly ducks into a nearby phone booth, emerges clutching some drum sticks and jumps onto the drum stool to drive the first tune like a pro! (As if playing hip 'bone solos isn't enough.) The depth of talent in the band was pretty scary, so I tried to avoid thinking about it while I was on the bandstand.
