Big Wave Dave and the Ripples

When Big Wave Dave and the Ripples are in the groove there isn’t a boat at sea that’s safe from the tsunami of sound. Frontman Dave Adams and his seven-piece band play an irresistible mix of freezing hot blues, deep soul and soaking wet rock and roll. From performing at poolside barbecues to collaborations with the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra, Big Wave Dave and the Ripples are party masters that can fill a dance floor with funky fun originals and spot-on classic covers. The band features Peter Knutson on lead guitar, Scott Millis on drums, Alex Nordehn on trombone, Alex Piazza on bass, David Rode on trumpet, Brian Wells on keys and Matt Wasmund on baritone sax.
