ABOUT

Brother Dave is a guitarist/vocalist whose passionate and eclectic style defies categorization!

While his musical influences are firmly based in Roots and Blues, his stylings are infused with Country, Rock, and Jazz sounds that embody both classic and modern sensibilities. Dave’s vocals are a cross between Gregg Allman, B.B. King, Bobby “Blue”Bland, Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top and even Bonnie Raitt!!!   His guitar stylings are a diverse blend of the earlier accompished guitarists…..Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Freddie, B.B. and Albert King, Chet Atkins, Charlie Christian, Django Reinhardt, Johnny Winter, as well as contemporary artists such as Joe Bonomassa, Kirk Fletcher and Eric Gales.

Since the age of 17, Brother Dave has been gigging with a variety of NYC-based bands, touring all over the East Coast and Europe and performing for audiences of all ages and tastes.

While he has the distinction of having opened for such world-class performers as Johnny Winter, Dickey Betts, Buddy Miles, Elvin Bishop, Debbie Davies, Room full of Blues, Shemieka Copeland, and Little Charlie and The Night Cats, he is just as likely to be seen entertaining the patrons of  a small intimate lounge or private party.
