4 GENERALS Keeping it fun


Helen Daley The Arizona Classic Jazz Society is


proud to present trumpet player Dan Reed, who now calls Arizona home. Born and raised in St. Louis, Dan


started studying trumpet at age nine. While in


high


Preservation Hall in New Orleans and met Al Hirt


there. He fell


school, Dan played in love with


traditional jazz and formed a band in St. Louis, playing on the Admiral River Boat and the Trad Jazz Festival by the Arch. The band’s piano player couldn’t play the Festival at the last minute, so Dan played piano with his left hand and trumpet with his right hand. This story brought to mind Brian Casserly from Cornet Chop Suey. Dan said he knew this band well and had even substituted once for both Brian and Tom Tucker at a festival in St. Louis. Dan graduated from Indiana University


with a degree in Music Performance. He studied under the famous Professor William Adam. While at the University, Dan played at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA, and two summers in Colonial Williamsburg, where he often played a herald trumpet (the long one used in special ceremonies). He also played the William & Mary Shakespearean Festival. He even went on the road traveling


through the United States and Canada with an Elvis impersonator. Hearing the call of the ocean, Dan


played for two years with Carnival Cruise Lines and was then asked to join Princess Cruises, where he stayed for 18 years. He served as musical director


for both


cruise lines. Dan intended to make St. Louis his home base after coming back to land in 2007. His parents had lived in Arizona years ago, so Dan visited, and many local bands wanted him to join their groups. He moved to Arizona in January 2011 and has been very busy playing as the featured musician in many bands, conducting and coaching bands, and giving private lessons. Dan has become so popular in


Arizona and encouraged to start his own group, he has decided to form Dan Reed’s Music, “Keeping It Fun.” You won’t want to miss Dan’s


performance with 52nd Street Jazz Band on June 24th, 1:00-4:00 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza San Marcos Golf Resort, One San Marcos Place, Chandler.
