An endless passion for music, for voices, for discovery, for people, for life.

Dave Hanlon's latest venture, Funky Jazz Band is actually a trip back in time to Dave’s history as a musician. In the 70s, Dave formed his first band as leader. It was a Jazz Fusion group – “Dave Hanlon’s Funky Jazz Band.” He did a lot of gigging and touring, and eventually came back home to Syracuse to form Dave Hanlon’s Cookbook.

Over the years, he’s played with the likes of Rick Cua, Larry Arlotta, Mark Doyle, Joe Jewell, Paulie Cerra, Ava Andrews, Loren Barrigar; the bands of C.R.A.C., Dove, Duke Jupiter, Cookbook, Apple Jazz Band; and produced for Glen Kolotkin, Steve Katz, Tom Emmi, and Charlie Bertini.

And now, coming full circle to a new incarnation of Funky Jazz Band, Dave has gotten some friends together bringing great live jazz sounds to life.
