Big Wave Dave Teaming up with DSSO

Updated: February 20, 2019 09:24 AM

Imagine a blend of classical symphony, soulful strings, funk, rock and blues. That's the concoction "Big Wave Dave and the Ripples" and the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra (DSSO) are drumming up at the DECC's Symphony Hall on Saturday, Feb. 23. 


Interim Executive Director for the DSSO, Kevin Peterson, says this concert has been years in the making. The two groups worked together during the orchestra's "Bridge Sessions" concert in 2015. After that, Music Director Dirk Meyer told Peterson they should team up. 

"We're really excited about the concert this Saturday," Peterson explains.  

UW-Superior music professor, Dr. Gregory Moore, has taken original 'Big Wave Dave' songs and arranged them in a way so the band and orchestra can play together. Dave Adams, who is the lead singer of the band, hopes people have a good time. 

"It's going to be our usual funk and soul fare," Adams explains, "and we're hoping people won't be afraid to get up and dance."

Peterson says there will be high energy and excitement throughout the night.
