2 Time Emmy Award Winner and Punta Gorda Resident Dave Powers on keyboards at the Orange House!
For over 35 years, Dave Powers has lit up the music scene in Columbus, Ohio, on the piano and keyboard, entertaining crowds as a soloist and as part of an ensemble. He has backed up many legends who came through that part of the county, including the likes of Gene “King Sax” Walker, 10-time Grammy award winner George Benson, and National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master Buddy DeFranco.
Powers is also a two-time Emmy winner, with his first award coming from his part as both consultant and featured guest on the PBS show “The Piano Guy,” hosted by Scott Houston. The show teaches piano to a large audience, being aired on over 150 stations across the country.
His second Emmy came from his musical composition and arrangements for the documentary “The First Lady of Television,” which covered the career of Ruth Lyons.
