The Tulane Lagniappe Series has booked one of the most well-renowned and in-demand, yet under-appreciated, musical talents in the industry today: drummer Chris Dave, who will give a free performance in Dixon Hall with his band, The Drumhedz, on Wednesday (March 6) at 8:30 p.m.
A native of Houston, Dave has played with many leading musical groups and artists, including as featured drummer on Adele’s Grammy-winning album 21.
The Lagniappe series of the Newcomb-Tulane College Office of Cocurricular Programs adds “something extra” to the Tulane experience by introducing students to the unique music and culture of New Orleans. Lagniappe’s cornerstone event is a free concert each fall by legendary jazz musician and educator Ellis Marsalis.
Benton Oliver is a junior at Tulane majoring in communication and music.
