Dave Quanbury grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, that’s north of North Dakota. He founded the Roots Americana band Twilight Hotel with fellow Winnipegger Brandy Zdan. Together they toured, co-wrote, and recorded several albums which garnered international critical praise and award nominations from the Canadian Folk Awards, and The Junos.
After moving to Austin and the disbanding of Twilight Hotel, Quanbury picked up trumpet, joined The Minor Mishap Marching Band, and turned to writing songs for his solo project. The Dave Quanbury band features his evocative electric guitar twang complimented by trumpet, flugelhorn, French horn, and Sousaphone. Their album is expected to drop later in 2014.
