More On Our Performers

Owner and promoter of the legendary Shaboo Inn Night Club in Willimantic from 1971 – 1982, David Foster produced more than 3,000 concerts.  He brought to sleepy northeastern Connecticut, a “Who’s Who” list of international recording artists ranging from Aerosmith and AC/DC to B.B. King and Muddy Waters.

In addition to being a noted promoter, Mr. Foster is also an accomplished performer at heart, having begun his career as a singer at age 14.  In 1980, he assembled a fabulous group of veteran musicians to form The Shaboo All-Stars.

Davis Foster has worked with such artists as the Temptations, Chuck Berry and Keith Richards.  Over the past 37 years, The Shaboo All-Stars rotating lineup has included notable musicians Maceo Parker on saxophone, Matt “Guitar” Murphy (“Blues Brothers”), guitarist Cliff Goodwin (Joe Cocker, Robert Palmer), keyboardist Mitch Chakour (Bonnie Raitt, Joe Cocker), guitarist Jeff Pevar (Ray Charles, David Crosby), and keyboardist Michael Finnegan (who recorded with Jimi Hendrix on his legendary “Electric Ladyland” album).

In 2001, Mr. Foster released his first album, “Powerful Stuff” to critical acclaim.  With his vocals powering the music, the album featured such classics as Bob Dylan’s “Serve Somebody”, the blues standard “Sweet Home Chicago”, and Lennon and McCartney’s “With a Little Help from My Friends”.  In 2009, David released “The Lost LA Sessions”, and received favorable reviews for his latest recording, “The Real Thing”, released in 2014.

Powerful musicianship, professional arrangements, and the vocals of David Foster; what more could you want than an evening with David “Lefty” Foster and the Shaboo All-Stars!
