Noontime Showcase: John Dover

Bach® trumpet artist and clinician, John Dover, has built his career on a sound that can be smooth and lush one moment and light up the room with fire the next. Based in Portland Oregon, John has worked with some of the biggest local acts (Patrick Lamb, China Forbes, Tony Starlight) as well as some of the finest musicians from around the country (Jeff Coffin, Kelly Roberti, Scott Whitfield, and Winston Byrd). From classical to Jazz, from Funk to Rock, John is at home performing and recording in any style of music. Be on the lookout for John as he continues to travel, perform, and teach. Also, be sure to pick up John's premier solo CD, "Working Out the Kinks" available through CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes, and directly for sale on this site.
