World Class Guitar Vocalist playing massive tunes with flair and passion!

Dave has played throughout the westcountry over the last 20years.

He has played in Army based, Posh Hotels, Festivals, Pubs, Clubs, Private Yachts, Gardens, Churches, City Centres - you name it. He is also one of those very few left-handed guitarists who play a right-strung guitar giving it a very unique sound full of percussive groove.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I'm happy to be flexible but if my overall time on site increases significantly then we can negotiate.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

yes

How much time do you need to set up?

20 mins absolute minimum if the access is excellent and I can park right next to the stage.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Yes,- please let me know beforehand.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, all you need to provide me with is power and cover if i'm outside and there is any chance of rain.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I charge extra for this as it's very time consuming but it does vary depending on the song and i'll let you know in advance how much i'll need to learn it.

Thank you Dave for playing such a great set for our village Gala day last week. I've had lots of really good feedback from the village this year about the quality of the live music and what a great time everyone had. Thanks for being flexible too and playing an extra few songs to fill in for our act that pulled out at the last minute. You must have a huge repertoire to be able to just pull out songs like that and then perform them to such a high standard! We hope you can come back again next year 🙂 thanks again!

Dave was great. Arrived with plenty of time to set up, had good equipment and was very professional and friendly. Did a great mix of music - old and new, which got everyone up dancing and sounded great.
