Brooklyn dance band Blacktop Daisy’s first concern is keeping the party going, which they do with their precise indie rock groove and funk floor-shakers. A ruckus good time.

Natalie Salzman

Natalie Salzman is a blues/country harpist. She makes songs her own by arranging them on to the harp, creating a care-free and soulful rendition. Refusing to pick one genre, you will find a broad variety of style in her music. She is a classically-trained harpist and is a recent graduate of the renowned Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. She has been playing the harp for 15 years and will be performing in the New York area this summer.

Dave Kardas Band

Dave Kardas plays fusion and blues in NYC, Ct and Austin Texas at this time. Playing bass with Dave is Brian Buster, and Tony Filyaw on Drums. Dave has been very actiive this past year playing in NYC at Iridium, Sugar Bar, National Underground and Shrine along with several clubs this year in Austin Texas, Carousal Lounge, Headhunters, Elephant Room, Cedar Door and Amarillo Music Hall. Dave's compositions have been selected to be played on The Real Radio Show Times Square, Artist First, Midnight Special Blues Radio in Paris France, Indie Radio 104 LA, KanalJazz and Uptown Blues Network.

My compositions and playing come from several influences, mainly Mike Stern, Larry Carlton, John Scofield, Stevie Ray Vaughan and others. A Graduate of Hartt School of Music, I have taken lessons with Larry Coryell, Jackie McLean and Sal Salvador.

I have been writing new music both instrumental and with me on the vocals, tunes such as Paradise and Broken Ankle(with Brian), both can be heard on You Tube, we are planning a new CD to be recorded over the winter. The band is planning a Southwest Tour in mid March to Austin, Texas and other southern cities.

I am a sample-based songwriter, pushing the limits of the traditional song structure by using all variety of live electronics, loops, and computers. I am an avant-garde singer-songwriter, an artist who puts as much effort into SONG (music and lyrics) as SOUND (texture and timbre).
