David Elsenbroich - Tarzana, CA

DAVID ELSENBROICH is an active professional musician and educator in the Los Angeles area, having earned his Bachelors and Masters in Music from USC. During his years studying under world-renowned jazz and western swing guitar player Bruce Forman, David focused his attention exclusively on early American musical styles and instruments. Since then he has gone on to start several bands that specialize in everything from 1890s ragtime string music to bluegrass from the 1940s. His 1930s swing band, The Hi Fi Honeydrops, have become a staple in the Los Angeles swing community and have received acclaim from the Los Angeles Times for its fresh take on centuries-old music. In addition to playing regularly, David teaches a wide array of instruments including banjo, mandolin, lute, ukulele, guitar, lap steel and bass. He also lectures on music history at Chaffey College in Rancho Cucamonga. Last year, David treated RagFest audiences to the entertaining string arrangements of The Elsenbroich Trio. This year, he’ll be accompanied by ANDREW BARRETT on piano.
