Artist Bio / Description

Dale plays with the White Album Ensemble. Formerly keyboardist and guitarist for the Doobie Brothers.

A longtime Beatles fan, Dale produces the shows, plays keyboards, harmonica, trumpet, mandolin and guitar in The White Album Ensemble, who have sold out over 15 concerts in theatres doing the White Album, Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt Peppers, Magical Mystery Tour albums, note for note, with 8 to 15 piece ensembles. They have raised over 20,000 for music in the schools in Santa Cruz, and Guitars, not Guns, a non-profit, non-violent organization. This leads to Dales latest endeavor after finishing ‘A Peace of My Mind’- founding the Santa Cruz New Music School, 512 Front St., Santa Cruz, a new and daunting task that is modestly trying to take the place of now defunct music in the schools programs, but with a Rock, Blues, Soul, Gospel, Funk angle.

Dale played with the re-formed Doobie Brothers from 1988 to 1996. Primarily he was enlisted as a songwriter, then as principal keyboardist and slide guitarist, toured US, Europe and Japan, before millions of fans and appeared on ‘The Tonight Show’ twice, and Londons ‘The International Rock Awards’. in London. He co-wrote 2 songs on the groups Capitol debut, the Gold album ‘Cycles’ ‘Take me to the Highway’, and ‘I Can Read Your Mind’ and one on the second release ‘Brotherhood’ ‘This Train Im On’. The expanded version of ‘Brotherhood’ included another, co written with Richard Bryant, ‘All your Dreaming’. ‘This Train Im On’ was considered essential enough to be included on the bands box set ‘Long Train Runnin’.
