Members of dispenza have played at the Playboy Jazz Festival, the '98 New York Jazz Festival, the '98 Lillehammer Jazz Festival, Nashville's Summer Lights Festival, and the Eastman Jazz Festival. Group members have had the added pleasure of recording and playing with such world class artists as Parliament-Funkadelic, Billy Higgins, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, Ginger Baker, Benny Carter, John Faddis, Wynton Marsalis, Burning Spear, and Weapon of Choice.
