I'm pretty sure that drummer would be Gene Jackson.

Mark and Brad,

Peterson was the name we thought we heard announced for the B3 player,
through the muffled mic at the Lincoln Theater, Napa Valley gig the night
before the San Jose Jazz Festival.  Dave's rhythm section was great,
especially the kick-ass drummer, whose name sounded like it might have been
Gene, but we can't swear to it.  We had a great time opening up for the
band.  And we got to hang for a jazz minute with Dave himself, who was
sweet, respectful and down-to-earth, as Tom Reney noted in an earlier
posting.  He's also a film noir fan and appreciates the film composers from
that classic era.  It was a real pleasure meeting him and hearing his
high-energy, take-no-prisoners band, right from their opening number,
"Comin' Home Baby", one of our favorites.  Larry calls him "the groove cat!"

Best,
Sanna
