Dave attended Berklee College of Music (Boston Mass) before serving in the U.S Army with the United States Military Academy Band (West Point).
As a solo entertainer or with select small ensembles,
Dave brings a distinct musical twist to popular music from the 60's & 70's.
With a strong piano (keyboard) foundation and a natural, decidedly low voice,
Dave sings tunes known from the era embellished with a mix of
pop, jazz, country and a touch of classical accompaniment.
Dave's distinct vocal character, without impersonations
is reminiscent of (among others): Ray Charles, Joe Cocker and Louis Armstrong.
The songs call out to be sung along. Bolder members of the audience are
encouraged to participate, each performance is unique.
Humor included (expect a laugh or two).
As a reminder, when visiting public venues, remember to tip your servers generously,
they work really hard to insure you enjoy!
