Guest Book Highlights

November 27, 2021 "We were honored and privileged to have seen him in many venues in Portland, when we lived there from 2007 to 2014. This includes the Benson Hotel, Ivories, the Pine Street Bar & Grill, where three of us, Rebecca Kilgores manager, Rebecca, and Dave were the only ones there for awhile! So we naturally talked to them and Rebecca even took requests!! We’ll never forget it. Jack & JoAnn Jex, Napa, CA" - J & J Jex
November 23, 2021 "In the mid-1990s, I had the sincere pleasure of catching Dave Frishberg at the Regattabar in Cambridge Massachusetts. Am a serious Baseball Junkie and just had to hear "Van Lingle Mungo" live. Dave didn't disappoint, delivering a solid rendition of this classic to a sold-out room of jazz aficionados - and baseball junkies. Gonna miss you, Dave. But I still got "Van Lingle Mungo". " - Scott Preston (Concord, NH)
November 22, 2021 "My condolences."
November 22, 2021 "Our deepest condolences to the family. We pray that God continues to strengthen and comfort the family during this difficult period."
November 21, 2021 "Farewell to the great Dave Frishberg, a dear friend whose songs, singing, and wonderful quirky piano style placed him among the most revered artists in the jazz world. During my years in Portland, Dave and April lit up my life and that of my late wife, singer Carol Ettman. What high spots in our lives were the opportunities to play with Dave, as well as the many times of hearing him in Portland clubs and having a part in presenting him in concerts in Portland and Reno. My wife Rosalyn, who met Dave and April during a return visit to Portland, joins me in sending our deepest condolences to April at this sad time." - Henry Ettman (SARASOTA, FL)
