The following description was submitted by the event organizer.
Swell, as it was, will never be again. But the original members are uniting for a tribute to David and the band's formative years. They will do a short European tour in April 2023, playing favorite songs from the first four albums.
Swell 2023 is co-founder Sean Kirkpatrick on drums, Monte Vallier on bass, Niko Wenner as lead guitar, and John Dettman-Lytle, original guitarist, stepping in to play acoustic guitar and take on most of the singing.
Sean Kirkpatrick, drummer, started the collaboration with David in 1989, leading to the recording of the first album, “Swell”. Sean’s unique drumming can be heard on all the albums through the 4th album, “Too Many Days Without Thinking”. Sean collaborated with David again in 2003 for the 7th album “Whenever You’re Ready.”
