Press

“I’ve had the joy of hearing the music of the Medicine Ball players many times. They raise high the spirits of the crowd with their wonderfully tight harmonies, irresistible and energetic rhythms, amazingly broad repertoire and skillful musicianship. Their playful banter between pieces adds to the enjoyment of their performances. They are wonderful and a joy to hear. I hope that many others will have that joy.”

    Hungry for Pizza and tantalizing music? Go no further than Shattuck Avenue in Berkeley and join David Sturdevant & Friends for an afternoon of good music and amazing pizza at the Cheese Board, where great things happen with good food. David spins the turnstile of his amazing ensemble of star performers that make up his celebrated band The Medicine Ball every other week for just the right mix to make the long lines worth every minute. With long time friends and new friends too, visiting luminaries like Pee Wee Ellis (James Brown's bandleader, arranger and sax great) and local favorites like Benny Watson and John Stafford (on loan from Stafford & Sturdevant) the music is the best around.
