I've been a fan of the David Bromberg Band for the past 27 years. I can remember seeing the band for the first time at the WPLJ concerts on "The Pier" in NYC. Bromberg, Fegy, and Firmin were always the focal point for me, and I won't soon forget the musical exchanges that occurred when I saw them perform...it was and is obvious that there existed a special conncection for these men, musical soul-mates if you will. I recently saw the DBB at the Grand Opera House in Wilmington, DE...and was fortunate enough to meet David, Dick and the rest of the band. Dick carried non of the pretense that I expected of a man of his talent, and when I asked him for an autograph he did so reluctantly...he seemed genuinely uncomfortable being looked at as a celebrity, and it really left an impression on me. Here was a man that had helped to paint so many musical landscapes, yet he couldn't even recognize how others could look at him with awe. I'll be back in the audience for DBB in May, but I will miss seeing Dick at David's left...somehow it isn't really the same any more...Dick, I thank you for enriching my life with your music and I'm so happy to have had an opportunity to meet you...Brian Perkins
