Jazz Singer Dave Boyer...
"From Night Club Performer to Crooner of Hope".
Dave Boyer, a native of York, PA, was
well-known in his younger years as the Master of Ceremonies at the "500
Club" in Atlantic City, New Jersey. At the advice of his manager, he
changed his name to Joey Stevens and success came quickly. He performed
with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis, Sammy Davis, Jr. and
Milton Berle. He also appeared with Martin & Lewis on the Today Show
when it originated from Atlantic City.
The life of a young, promising performer
fell victim to the dependence for drugs and alcohol and watched it ruin
his marriage and career. (You will have to hear the interview to find
out how just how God reached down to Dave and touched his soul and
turned his life around!)
Since 1966, Dave Boyer has been bringing
the word of God to hundreds of thousands of people in all corners of the
country. Dave carries with him a message of joy to the people of the
church and world. His message is simple: You are not alone in your day
to day struggles, God is always with you.
Dave's unique style of Big Band Gospel Jazz music reaches people of all
ages. His powerful ministry and testimony has opened up doors for
hundreds of youth programs all over the US. Dave's ministry and musical
style are continuing to gain popularity with people from all walks of
life in all age groups. Dave performs with church bands, orchestras, and
solo. He has performed and recorded several albums with legendary
composer and director Ralph Carmichael. Dave Boyer's life is a living
testimony to the fact that God is forever with us, everyday, and

For The Soul
Here is a beautiful lyric from the song '"The Trumpet
Child" by the group Rhine. It is very unique with hip jazz lyrics and points to a future time
when the earth and all of its inhabitants will be at peace.
"The trumpet child will blow his horn
Will blast the sky till it’s reborn
With Gabriel’s power and Satchmo’s* grace
He will surprise the human race
The trumpet he will use to blow
Is being fashioned out of fire
The mouthpiece is a glowing coal
The bell a burst of wild desire
The trumpet child will riff on love
Thelonious notes from up above
He’ll improvise a kingdom come
Accompanied by a different drum
The trumpet child will banquet here
Until the lost are truly found
A thousand days, a thousand years
Nobody knows for sure how long
The rich forget about their gold
The meek and mild are strangely bold
A lion lies beside a lamb
And licks a murderer’s outstretched hand
The trumpet child will lift a glass
His bride now leaning in at last
His final aim to fill with joy
The earth that man all but destroyed".

is a singer with a passion
for the lyrical beauty and spontaneous vitality of jazz. Her reputation
has grown rapidly during the last seven years, and she has honed a
musical personality that is strong, refined, and uniquely her own.
She has worked with some
great musicians: John Patitucci, 7-string guitarist Dave Schroeder,
Anders Swanson, Eric Stiller, Cecelia Coleman, Jack Sheldon, Doc
Rutherford, Ross Thompkin, and many others.
A creative partnership
with pianist/composer Mark Massey has resulted in a remarkable
repertoire of jazz and Brazilan standards, as well as a few fresh
renderings of popular classics. Mark's imaginative arrangements,
combined with Dorothy's rich vocals give you an exciting concoction of
straight-ahead jazz. The album entitled Jazz Hymns is a project that
grew out of this partnership.
Dorothy shares,"We have
attempted to present not only a historical survey of hymns, one as old
as 1100 years, others 350 and 200 years old, but a broad spectrum of
styles of jazz including traditional, modern, Brazilian, fusion, R&B,
and gospel. Our objective is to present jazz to non-jazz listeners
(Christians who will appreciate the old hymns), and to present some
interesting, straight-ahead jazz to people who wouldn't think of
listening to Christian music."
"It swings, it's funky, and it's straight-ahead as well. The
musicianship is superlative, the arrangements brilliant, and the vocals
are both earthy and angelic. This album redefines 'hymn' while at the
same time pays homage to songs that have reverberated with love for God
for hundreds of years."

has a diversified musical
background. Growing up in a musical family (everyone played at least one
instrument and sang), Wenda was encouraged to pursue various musical
interests. She performed in church and school, sang in musicals and
wrote songs for her teachers to play. As a young adult Wenda became a
certified musical instrument repair technician and repaired instruments
for many of the Seattle area schools. Soon professionals were using
Wenda's repair services, and Wenda took advantage of learning from some
of these seasoned pros who were her customers. Don Lanphere, Bud Shank,
Phil Woods, Nick Brignola, Bill Ramsay, Dick Oates, Bobby Shew, and Pete
Christlieb (to name a few) all gave Wenda musical advice and
Wenda has also
developed a curriculum for high school students who want to learn how to
play jazz improvised solos. She volunteers and teaches this mini course
at High Schools. Performing for Wenda has always been rewarding, but her
CD recording made it evident that composing and studio work was in
Wenda's blood. She enrolled in The Pacific Northwest Film Scoring
Program under the tutelage of Hummie Mann, and soon found herself
scoring her first film. Wenda is now fully equipped with a recording
studio and able to composed film music/scores for a wide range of
Wenda's CD "Latina By
Proxy", includes a wide variety of Latin Jazz styles that can make even
the docile get up and dance! The CD has received very good reviews.
"Wenda's soprano playing
is quite enjoyable, with a singing quality that enhances tunes....the
baritone is heavy by nature, and it takes something special to make
certain things especially lyrical playing work on it. Wenda makes this
lyrical quality appear easy."-Nick Brignola

Growing up the son of a
musician father, David began his musical journey at a very young age. At
2 years old, he was already keeping the beat and playing for any
audience that was willing to listen. Forward 9 years later, at 11, he
records his first demo of original songs. Doors continue to open
for young David. He landed an opportunity to play drums for a TV
commercial jingle and played with different bands he formed through
school. He also picked up the bass and began switching between both.
In June of 2003 when David
was only 16 years old, he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a
form of cancer that slowed him down but didn't stop him from doing what
he loved. After 3 years of Chemotherapy, David was victorious over his
cancer battle and was declared cancer free. David continued where he
left off and has gone on to play various venues, among them: UCLA, Cal
State LA, USC, The Whisky A go-go, El Rey Theatre, BB Kings Blues Club,
Universal City Walk, The Mayan Theatre, Vanguard University, The
Knitting Factory, and the Larchmont. He also learned to play various
instruments like the Jarana, requinto jarocho, vihuela, and the piano.
At only 22 years old,
David continues sailing uncharted territory as he fuses his blend of
funk, R&B, rock and Latin fusion to create some of the most explosive
blend of music invading your ears. Now attending the Musicians Institute
and worshipping at Calvary Chapel Montebello, his goal remains to reach
out to everyone, especially the sick and hurting, with a powerful
message of healing and restoration. David shares, "I defeated cancer, it
didn't defeat me, thanks to the power and grace of God!"
