http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWklY3HgSII&feature=em-uploademail-new The musical creation of Jazzdish began in 1995, as founder and drummer Doug Roufa returned to his passion of music as he made his way back to Houston following the receipt of his business degree from UT Austin. It was years earlier at the age of 11, that Doug took his first drum lesson at Musicland in southwest Houston, along with his twin brother Kenny who began guitar lessons. Doug’s love for drumming continued and through persistency and sound practice habits sat in on drums at his first professional gig at age 13.Jazzdish is built around the diverse talent of its players who have a strong passion and respect for the art of jazz music. Doug and two other musicians of Jazzdish graduated from the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts 1980-1981, and have performed together for more than 30 years. Rob Erickson has performed on piano for several decades in solo and group settings to include Houston’s Ovations, Cezanne and Cody’s nightclubs. He performs solo piano regularly at Perry’s Steakhouse in The Woodlands. Keith Vivens has been highly demanded as one of Houston’s great bass players, having performed and recorded with such artists as Howard Hewitt, Bobby Lyle, Harvey Mason, Ricky Lawson, Branford Marsalis, The Duke Ellington Orchestra, Randy & Michael Brecker and Joe Henderson. Keith’s personality is as vibrant as his musical talent! Larry Diaz has performed on saxophone with his own musical groups and as a freelance musician since the 1970s, and has a unique flair for enhancing any group he steps on stage with. We welcome you to give Jazzdish a taste.
