ABOUT

Hi, Dave here...

Lead guitarist/vocals and band manager for two bands I started: The Southern Guns Band (SGB) in long island (FB/SOUTHERNGUNBAND) and the Town and Country Band (TCB) playing modern country (FB/LITCBAND). I have a busy schedule , but still can find bandwidth for the right project and any sub-work.

I have many years as a band manager, musical director, band digital marketer, web designer, content creator, sound man and babysitter / scheduler for several groups. Booking all the shows and making sure necessary sub-players, PA, lighting, schedules , setlists and music is all in order. But I would also like to take a back seat and just play my guitar for a change :)

I enjoy playing almost anything as long as the people are great, sound is good and all are striving for a professional and high quality experience for the audience!

Looking for tribute opportunities or professional gigging work , have played all the small/med/big venues in Long Island, lots of connections and my marketing game is always a priority, high tech and relentless (custom artwork, digital/social media campaigns, video editing, networking, I do bookings for both bands etc..)
