Dave Bennett Great balls of Fire 2019

Dave Bennett with Dave Bennett Quartet pounds out the Jerry Lee Lewis hit “Great Balls of Fire” during the 2019 Elkhart Jazz Festival. Bennett returns this week and will play each day of the festival.

ELKHART — Dave Bennett loves Elkhart, and Elkhart loves Dave Bennett.

The 37-year-old Michigan-born jazz musician has played at every Elkhart Jazz festival since he was 19, and this year, his name features on the schedule more times than anyone else’s, as he will play today, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
