Dale Spalding

When not on tour with legendary band Canned Heat or Latin Jazz giant Poncho Sanchez, multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter Dale Spalding can be found leading his own band in his native California, or in Austin, Texas, where he's now based and performs solo and with local greats such as Little Elmore Reed.

The in-demand musician has also appeared and/or recorded with Dave Alvin, James Cotton, Marcia Ball, Ruthie Foster, Papa Mali, Otis Rush, Pinetop Perkins, Amos Garrett and Redd Volkaert, among the many.


In 2007, Dale met legendary blues drummer Fito de la Parra. After playing several gigs together, Fito invited Dale to join his renowned group, Canned Heat. The rest, as they say, is history. Canned Heat embark on an extended European tour the summer of 2010.
