Dave Venn Trio

Dave Venn-1Pianist Dave Venn is a hometown legend. A St. Louis native, Venn began his professional music career as a tenor saxophonist, performing with the Jazz Central group and various other local bands. In the 1960s the St. Louis jazz scene was flourishing in places like Gaslight Square, The Playboy Club, and the DeBaliviere area. With more opportunities for pianists than saxophonists, Venn made the switch to piano.

Venn has accompanied countless renowned singers and instrumentalists who have performed in St. Louis. He is in demand both as a soloist and with his larger groups, regularly appearing at the top clubs, hotels, concerts, and other venues throughout the area. Venn has been named the “Best Local Pianist/Keyboardist” by the Riverfront Times and continues to be revered by St. Louis audiences.
