Dave Lang is a cultural outsider born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan but he has lived all over Canada. He was a mainstay of the Regina live-music scene around the turn of the century but has since moved on to other horizons. Most recently, he has been studying jazz theory and guitar in Victoria, British Columbia. Prior to that, he was the musician-in-residence at the vaudevillian Lyric Theatre in Swift Current, Saskatchewan.

Dave's music has explored a variety of genres including roots, folk, rock, jazz and country; genres which are all reflected in the four solo albums he released prior to his three recent recordings with the Twin Otters. Dave is currently making western swing jazz music. HIs compositions are referential without being reverential; he writes new standards from a modern Canadian perspective. Most of all, he loves writing songs and loves having fun which makes for a very entertaining show.

The Twin Otters feature University of Victoria music graduates Jeff Poynter on clarinet and Alex Rempel on string bass; they will be performing with Dave for his Regina show. This collaboration is a very classy act - interesting, infectious and fun music well played.

"Dave Lang writes perfect songs. He's a master storyteller with a sly, incisive wit."
- Geoff Berner (singer-songwriter)
