Dave Edwards

Here's a picture of music maker Dave Edwards playing a nice solo of "Misty".

Dave, who played for the Welk orchestra from 1968 to 1979, was born in Tuskegee, Alabama on January 11, 1941 and attended Auburn University along with a stint in NORAD with their famous orchestra before joining Mr. Welk.

Sadly, he died much too young in 2000 at the age of 59...when he was around, he was one of the finest saxophone players in the business and we are all glad that tapes of the Welk show preserve memories for all of us to enjoy.

And he also looked great too with those glasses, a great role model for all Welk fans that wear specs!
