We are excited to announce that Dave's new all-bass and vocal CD is now completed and heading to the manufacturer. Dave has been working on this project for 10 years, and it is his most ambitious all-bass recording yet. 14 songs in all, nine written or co-written by Dave and five tunes by a diverse array of other writers including Charles Mingus, Guy Clark, Jesse Winchester, and Norman Whitfield. We will be announcing a release date shortly, and can't wait to share this long-awaited new project with the world and with YOU! Stay tuned...
Dave has been featured in a full page ad for Kala U-Basses on the back of the AFM's International Musician magazine. These are pretty awesome instruments with an astounding tone that belies its small size. They are portable and very musical, with their innovative string technologies being the secret behind this innovative instrument. Check 'em out!
This is the second of a series of "Thursday Night Madness" monthly shows hosted by Dave Pomeroy with a variety of special guests. In the tradition of his infamous Monday Night Madness shows back in the 90s, Dave will open the shows with a solo set, and then welcome a variety of guests to perform a few songs. The April 13th show features Dave's guests, singer/songwriter Verlon Thompson, longtime sideman for Guy Clark and great artist in his own right, Swedish singer/songwriter/keyboardist Andreas Aleman, who is in the middle of a U.S., and the bluesy sounds of husband and wife team Bob and Etta Britt. The Keemosabees (Ricky Ray Rector, Rick Lonow, and Dave) will close the shows with a groovin' funky set to finish the night. Come on down! Show starts at 8:30. $7 cover at the door.
"WHO KNEW" is an ongoing series of music business events that feature speakers from various areas of the industry. The Supply Chain of Music will show the journey of a recording from song idea to recording to release to airplay, chart position, and the resultant revenue streams. Dave will be representing the musicians' role in this process. Other speakers include producer Garth Fundis and BMI's Jody Williams, both of whom have played significant roles in Dave's career. This should be an interesting and informative event.
We are excited to announce that the Musicians Hall of Fame, located in Municipal Auditorium in downtown Nashville, has put one of Dave's basses on display, his stalwart G&L L2000 that he played on Trisha Yearwood's "She's In Love With The Boy," Don Williams' "I've Been Loved By The Best," Alan Jackson's "Little Bitty," Keith Whitley's "I'm Over You" and many more records. It is displayed in a case with guitars belonging to Reggie Young, Merle Haggard, Jerry Kennedy, and Chip Young.

Jim Rooney is a legendary songwriter, producer, author and artist, having worked with iconic roots artists such as John Prine, Nanci Griffith, Iris DeMent, Tom Paxton, Tom Rush. He has written two acclaimed books. The first was "Bossmen," first published in the late 60s and recently rereleased, is an incredible comparison of the parallel lives and careers of two seemingly polar opposites who in fact have much in common, Bill Monroe and Muddy Waters. His autobiography, "In It For The Long Run" was released last year and is an amzing tale of his very interesting life, so far. The band is full of many of Nashville's finest musicians, including Pat McLaughlin, Jelly Roll Johnson, Richard Bailey, Pat Alger, Pat McInerney, Dan Dugmore, Pete Wasner, Shawn Camp, and Dave Pomeroy. Jim's special guests often include great players such as Sam Bush, Stuart Duncan, and more. It's always a fun night of great songs, wonderful playing, and good vibes.
