Dave Church


Band to Join, Vocalist, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar, Keyboard.


Personality fit is key - I’m a laid back, open-minded person who can get along with most anyone. I’ve played with a lot of people and I know that having a similar feel and vibe when playing is absolutely essential.

Have played acoustic and electronic drums for over 28 years - at this time I am looking to play with full bands with my full kit while gigging out and/or acoustic or smaller-type gigs with my Cajon hybrid drum kit set up. I’m very versatile.

I'm a unique drummer for sure. I grew up playing Gospel music in a Pentecostal church and played for multiple churches and at dozens of concerts for 15+ years. I also have played in several original and cover band groups including a Hip-Hop/R&B group a rock/alternative pop group and an individual artist.

My style of play is a mix between Danny Carey (Tool) and Aaron Spears.

I am open to playing for many types of bands/artists but lean more towards country/funk/pop/rock. I know when to stay in the pocket and went to showcase when the time is right.

I currently work full time as a mental health counselor and am looking to gig out nights and weekends now that my career is more established.
